The Spark Group recently attended the IMTC (International Money Transfer Conference) in LA on April 13-15. It truly was a great conference and we met some wonderful people there. It was also pretty wonderful weather, and we heard New York was all kinds of rainy on those days- so it was nice to get out.
The conference took place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles. We were sponsors during the conference, which allowed us to have a booth during the trade shows that took place every day (check it out in the pictures below). During the conference, Eric also moderated a panel on Technology in the Money Transfer industry and invited Ben Katz from GreenDot and Jonathan Leer from Earthport to join him. We’ll have a video of that panel shortly and will share it with you all as soon as we have it.
All in all, the conference was a great experience. We got to have great conversations with great people and discussed many ways to bring newer technologies and new tools into the Money Transfer Industry. In addition, we got to announce our newest project, MTMD (Money Transfer Making a Difference) which depends on the combined efforts of the MT Industry for its success. Read more about the MTMD here.
We’ll be attending the next conference in Miami in October, and will be sponsoring that conference as well. We’ll keep you posted as we know more details.
