The Future of Cash conference was the first to bring together all stakeholders involved in the cash cycle. It typically attracts delegates from central banks, financial institutions, retailers, cash management companies, technology providers and suppliers.

The Future of Cash conference focuses on understanding the changing cash environment and what stakeholders are doing to optimise the cash cycle and ensure cash’s future viability and sustainability. It brings together all stakeholders to discuss new strategies for creating the cash cycle of the future.

The 2022 event will feature three unique and novel initiatives.

The Futures Literacy Lab on The Role of Cash in The Future Monetary Landscape

Futures Literacy Labs are an advanced, field-tested methodology for gaining new insights into the nature and impact of imagined futures. In this Lab, participants will deploy their collective intelligence to present and assess probable and desirable futures for cash. Using action-research/action-learning tools, the Lab will offer the opportunity to analyse the burning questions facing the future of cash. For instance, the fundamental ethical issues related to the future of cash, from loss of privacy to concentration of knowledge and data. The Lab will take participants beyond deterministic extrapolations and techno-fatalism to examine changes inspired by open and creative futures.

The Lab will be built around three three-hour sessions on 7 September (remote session), 8 September (remote session) and 14 September (in-person). Places are limited, and participants must engage in all three sessions to create the collective intelligence process. Register here.

CashTech Round Table and the CashTech Innovation Awards

CashTech is the encounter between cash and technology. It brings together innovative companies who leverage software and modern communications technology to improve cash services – including access for consumers and businesses, facilitating the acceptance of cash by retailers across all channels, and enhancing cash’s overall efficiency, resilience and sustainability.

The CashTech Innovation Awards will celebrate the tremendous advances in harnessing digital technology to ensure an accessible, reliable and sustainable future for cash. Submissions may be sent here.

Research Seminar on the Cost of Payments

Measuring the costs of payments has always been a complex issue, and various studies have reached significantly different conclusions. When the payment landscape is undergoing radical and potentially disruptive change, we intend to debate this topic with researchers, academics, payments experts and economists.

This half-day seminar, hosted by the think tank CashEssentials, will be held on Friday, 16 September, and is open to all conference participants.
