World Telemedia Marbella (8-10 Oct) – A Huge VAS Payment Opportunity for the Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Sector

We’re delighted to announce that with generous support from The Fintech Times – World Telemedia 2018 is set to attract over 500 C-Level industry delegates to Marbella along with 60+ leading international exhibitors – for three days of meetings, conferences, country updates and some intensive 24/7 business networking. Having doubled in size within the last twelve months, the show now combines the technical know how of Mobile World Congress’ Hall 8.1 with the flair and energy of Affiliate World, and therefore attracts brands, merchants, affiliate networks, media groups and content owners from the widest range of VAS and content verticals.  A current list of participating companies can be found here:

World Telemedia is the only dedicated annual trade event for businesses that engage and commercialize / bill “connected consumers” whilst they interact with value added services [VAS], applications and premium content promotions. It showcases how alternative payment platforms integrate with a dynamic value chain which is driven by minutes, messages and traffic – and now it’s set to be underpinned by blockchain technologies. It therefore represents an obvious catalyst to the creation of genuine global payment opportunities for the deployment of cryptocurrencies.

The Telemedia industry is about to experience a revolution in transaction processing; as all providers of goods and services [that need distributed ledger technology] are gearing up to tap into the cryptocurrency eco system. Because, quite simply it offers access to a consumer base that is literally “1-click” away from purchase – and the telemedia industry knows exactly how to market, acquire, engage and convert those high-tech content-hungry consumers. “World Telemedia represents a perfect commercial storm that’s brewing in the late-summer Mediterranean sunshine!” says CEO Jarvis Todd.  

Blockchain & Crypto in the Spotlight

No wonder the profile of attendees and discussion topics is changing; to represent the inevitable seismic shift in the structure of this highly lucrative and dynamic industry. You only have to scan the Spotlight Session program [] to appreciate the extensive opportunities for conducting business within this sector.

After an opening day  “ICO masterclass” hosted by Kate Goldfinch, Science Editor of The Fintech Times – she then takes the lead with Ingrid Silver, Partner with Reed Smith (Entertainment & Media Industry group) – to outline the “Big Blockchain Shake Up” and then tees up “The Adoption of Crypto for E-Commerce” which features David Wainwright (Founder of TheRedBox) and Tony Pearce (CEO of Reality Clash), who wraps up with a practical vision of “Token Economics & Blockchain for Mobile Games”.
