The goal of the Forum is to encourage discussion and debate around the real issues at the heart of electronic money in all its forms. In addition to this Forum, every autumn we organise the annual Digital Identity Forum (see the web site at www.digitalidforum.com for more details), the sister event to the Digital Money Forum.

As usual we will be limiting the number of delegates at the 2009 forum to 100 registrations per day. The discussion has already started on our new Digital Money Forum Blog. We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their support.
