The Banker’s Guide to Money 20/20

Money 20/20

It’s October—leaves are falling, pumpkin spice is in the air (I’ll leave it to you to decide, dear reader, as to whether the spice thing is good or bad), and the largest finance and payments industry event is upon us.

It’s definitely time to “show me the money!”

And this October, we’re innovating, networking, seizing opportunities, and gaining tremendous insights all while in Las Vegas with 11,000 of our closest friends in payments.

The Bank Team is ready for Money 20/20.

But are you? I know it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the incredible content, sessions, and roulette tables at your disposal. You’ve got commerce and CX, you’ve got regulation and entrepreneurship, you’ve got Britney Spears and the Blue Man Group. Which is why is here to help!

Bankers, get ready—this is your one-stop shop for all things Money 20/20.

Money 20/20: Breaking it down

1. Session Planning

It’s a pipe dream to think you can attend every workshop, every case study, every announcement, and every presentation that may be interesting and relevant. So if you are attending with colleagues, take the divide and conquer approach. Trust us, it’s worth your time and sanity to study the agenda and key speakers “pre-conference” so you can map out your team’s priorities in advance.

A little uncertain which sessions speak to your soul? Money 20/20 has broken down the content into cohesive themes/tracks which include:

Still at a loss? Start out with the big ticket items first. For example, catch Chris Skinner’s topic on “invisible money,”  star power visionaries like THE Steve Wozniak, or your own bank’s leadership session—start here first then customize your daily schedule around that.

Be sure you don’t miss…

B2B Payments: Investment is Heating Up & Paper Checks are Under Fire! with our very own CEO, René Lacerte. In this session, a full set of industry POVs from experts at Mastercard and Bank of America will discuss new gains in digitizing business payments and how to finally ditch paper checks.

2. The Exhibit Hall

First, make concentric, clockwise circles…

No, I’m kidding. It is possible to take full advantage of the expo hall’s offerings. Catch up with key contacts, check out the latest product news, and track down the best swag, with a little planning up front. Develop your strategy using the Money 20/20 interactive map. Mark the areas you need to hit and take the map with you to reference during those key networking breaks.

Make sure you pay special attention to the best place in the Sands expo center—Booth #323. Come chat with the Bank Team and learn about our exciting product innovations, new bank collaborations, and compelling case studies. Discover what business customers really need from their banks, and grab a bag of sugary goodness—try our energy-boosting candy bar!

3. Staying in the Know

Money 20/20 is where news is made. Plug into the official Money 20/20 app during the conference to follow the feed on what influencers are excited about, the latest announcements and product launches, and the innovative happenings in the exhibit hall.

And don’t forget to attend at least one of the receptions! Either the Poolside Reception on Sunday or Industry Night at the Omnia club on Monday.

4. Socialize

Tweet to your heart’s content! Before the conference, follow @money2020 on Twitter or their Facebook page and connect with others who are scoping out the scene ahead of time. Social media is the perfect way to find the latest scoop on the hottest trends and disruptors that will be making waves at the event.

Plus, be sure to follow @billcom on Twitter and Facebook! We’ll be tweeting and posting all things #Money2020 under #BDCConnectLive.

5. Conference Survival

Above all else, have fun and take care of yourself by...

  • Wearing (really) comfortable shoes
  • Keeping your cell phone charger with you at all times
  • Staying hydrated (bring a water bottle and find out where the refill stations are)
  • Taking breaks
  • Eating well

And, of course, make some time for yourself to enjoy the glitz (and gambling) that’s only found in Vegas.
