The Prepaid Press Expo 2016

August 9-10, 2016 -

The prepaid services industry is one of the most dynamic of all consumer-driven industries. Users of prepaid wireless, debit cards and gift cards are no longer part of the niche market they once were. You, your friends, your family, and your colleagues are all potential – or current - prepaid consumers.

Our industry has reached its tipping point, and all lines are blurred – all services are blurred. Whether visiting their favorite retail store, or using a personal handheld device, a consumer expects convergence. Integration of top up, long distance, remittance, and payments is no longer viewed as future technology. It is the key to customer retention in the 21st century.

While there are events for each individual sector of prepaid services, there is only one event that gives you access to all levels of the prepaid wireless distribution chain, and all variations of prepaid services.

With two full days of exhibit hall activities, including numerous high impact networking functions to maximize exhibitor and attendee interaction, The Prepaid Press Expo
