The NFC Summit at 4G World is taking place this October
NFC is taking off and becoming prevalent and relevant. This year that fact is highlighted by the fact that as part of the 4G World conference, a whole summit is being devoted to NFC. The NFC Summit at the 4G World conference is being held in Chicago and covers topics as diverse as NFC access control, looking into available API’s and even focusing on NFC in retail which is expected to change the way we shop beyond paying for purchases. The NFC Forum will even be onstage giving a presentation on how NFC’s mandate and capabilities extend far beyond just payments.

NFC Summit speaks about how NFC is Enabling New Revenue Opportunities at 4G World
Near field communications (NFC) has become the poster child technology for enabling mobile payments. More than just emulating payment cards, NFC can open doors to revenue and growth across a broad range of verticals. This summit will bring together the many enabling stakeholders of the NFC ecosystem, from chipset and device manufacturers to banks, mobile operators and retailers, to openly discuss the future of this technology and its application in enabling the next generation of retail, security, health care, marketing, M2M and, of course, payments.
