Square Co-founder Jim McKelvey as Visionary Keynote Speaker at Cards & Payments Asia 2014

SINGAPORE, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers' ever-changing shopping habits are calling for greater customisation of e-commerce and payments services in Asia through the recent years. With business opportunities aplenty, retailers are exploring further integration of online sales platforms such as smart device-oriented social networks and websites.

"Too often, organisations view Asia as some monolithic subset of opportunity. The history of technology is different. Greater technical progress begets greater customisation to the needs of each individual. The future of Asia will be a conglomeration of unique solutions that adapt to each specific culture,"  said Jim McKelvey, who co-founded Square with Twitter's Jack Dorsey. Jim, the Visionary Keynote speaker at the 19 th annual Cards & Payments Asia 2014 will kickstart the event with a topic close to his heart --  'The Evolution of the Connected Shopper' that discusses how fresh innovations in smart technologies are constantly driving the reinvention of existing processes and solutions in the ever-evolving retail and payments space.

Cutting-edge smart technologies and innovations from over 200 international exhibitors are just some of the many exciting features at the 10,000sqm Cards and Payments Asia 2014 expo and its 8 other co-located events -- Future Bank Asia, The Cash Handling Show Asia, NFC World Asia, Digital ID World Asia, RFID World Asia, Retail World Asia, e-Commerce Show Asia and Digital Signage World Asia.

Audrey Leong, General Manager, Terrapinn Pte Ltd said, "Cards & Payments Asia 2014 will highlight the latest payments and e-commerce trends that industries such as retail, telecommunications, banking, hospitality, security and government agencies can leverage to identify new business opportunities and spearhead growth."

Cards & Payments Asia 2014 and its co-located events are set to host about 7,000 trade attendees from 40 countries including 500 C-Level delegates and 100 speakers.
