GeoNext Conference Brings Together Geo users, Businesses, and Developers

Greg Storey is Head of VISA’s Asia-Pacific, Central Europe, Middle East and Africa, and will give a keynote entitled “Mobile/NFC Payments – covering location based marketing; security and monetisation,” which will tell how the future of digital wallets will provide a revolutionary platform for the mobile application ecosystem.

While the mobile phone platform has seen a convergence of voice, video, apps and location technology, missing to date have been safe, frictionless payment facilities.

In his keynote, Greg will talk of some of the emerging e-wallet technologies that await us, and how this payment infrastructure will provide a platform for a commercial revolution in mobile applications, and create a paradise for innovators.

In addition to the great speakers, there will also be a Startup Showcase, where Australia’s greatest innovators have a chance to present their latest idea to real investors, and gain feedback on it, as well as some valuable industry exposure.

If you’re building a new location-based service, and are keen for some exposure, to gain some valuable feedback, and a chance to win some prizes, then you should submit your company to the startup showcase at
