The Mobile Payments Conference Fall 2014 will convene the foremost experts to discuss pressing issues affecting both consumer and retail constituencies.

"We are seeking speakers who can share their expertise on the future of mobile in retail, SoLoMo (Social, Local, and Mobile Marketing), and mobile payments with actionable insights on how these developments will affect the retail and mobile landscape.

"The 2014 Winter Mobile Payments Conference in Miami was a resounding success," added Marla Ellerman.
