IMTC is basically a forum for the Money Transfer industry, a forum of people involved in providing x-border financial services, such as Money Transfer Operators (MTOs), Banks and Mobile Operators involved in financial services (MMOs), and a large array of institutions, brick-and-mortar or digital first, for-profit and non-profit, that provide services along migration corridors, to people or companies, personal or commercial, formal or informal. Some might be designated as remittances, payments, international compensation of employees, etc.. Globally, the Money Transfer Industry is very large and diverse but very scattered across all countries with partnerships interconnecting the networks, some very mature and regulated (and even over-regulated) to some that are emerging and maybe underregulated, full of innovative solution builders and leading-edge entrepreneurs. Invigorated by technology developments, new services are emerging and the RemTECH Awards have been launched in 2017 to boost innovations in the remittance space!
To this industry, IMTC brings the researchers, the consultants, the politicians, the regulators, the activists, but also the providers of services or products that intersect with the industry’s core services. Some might be providing financial services to the same users as well as foreign exchange, communications, travel, packaging services, etc. The technology providers, the auditors, the legal & regulatory advisory services, the compliance professionals are also welcome to share their expertise and contribute to strengthening this community.
IMTC attendees include bank and non-bank financial institutions, international money transfer companies, remittance service providers, card companies, payment processors, merchant service providers, telecommunication networks, mobile money service providers, retail chains, financial services organizations, foreign exchange firms, VCs & blockchain-based remittance services, bill payment, airtime & package transportation/delivery providers, as well as many other complimentary services providers and providers of industry services such as legal, compliance, bonding, auditing, software, IT development & security, etc.
Our conference sessions bring current issues to light challenging participants to interact, comment, share their views & opinions, discuss and understand trends and discover opportunities.
