Datacard Group has announced that it will host a seminar to educate bank executives, financial card issuers, acquirers, service bureaus and retailers on EMV technology and NFC adoption in the U.S. marketplace.
This three-hour seminar is part of Datacard Group’s EMV technology educational series led by industry expert Guy Berg. According to Datacard, seminar attendees will learn about EMV technology requirements and how EMV technology can converge with NFC. The seminar will also examine the implications for Visa’s recently unveiled plans to bring these two technologies to the U.S. market.
Berg, who has more than 20 years experience in the banking and credit and debit card industry, has worked on global EMV technology projects over the past 12 years and is considered an industry expert in EMV technology, U.S. contactless chip cards, NFC payments and the electronic payment ecosystem, according to Datacard. Berg has presented recently at Smart Card Alliance EMV technology workshops and at the Merchant Advisory Group (MAG) U.S. EMV technology migration panel.
Datacard Group, which currently provides some 200 EMV technology solutions around the world, will host the seminar on Nov. 8 at SOMA, 795 Folsom Street 1st Floor, in San Francisco, CA.
