This is not just another iteration of the ATMIA USA conference. It is the 25th iteration of that conference, which will also be celebrating events gone by. The exhibit hall is sold out – efforts are being made to add lobby area booth space. Record-breaking attendance in excess of 1,200 is expected. And the educational program is incredible.

In other words, if you have not already registered at a discount and grabbed a Caesar’s Palace room (at a rate that you won’t believe), it would be a good idea to do so right now!

Plan to be there early on Day 1 to attend committee meetings and/or one of four deep-dive workshops. All of the regular regional committee groups will meet, starting at 11:15am PST – the GRC, FI ATM Deployers; IAD Committee and, U.S. Regional Board. At Workshop 1, financial institutions can learn about innovations in cash cycle management for corporates and merchants. All ATM deployers are welcome to join the workshop on ATM crime, trends, and tactics to hear reports from law enforcement. And advice from industry experts on security strategies to help protect your business, people, and ATM assets.

The day ends, of course, with the Opening Reception and the best networking opportunity the industry has to offer. Make new contacts and refresh old ones, while roaming a massive exhibit hall that is displaying the best in new ATM technology.

Brett Johnson, one of the world's foremost authorities on cybercrime and identity theft, will kick off the educational program as our Keynote Speaker on Day 2. This is one that you will not want to miss. Today, Brett works as a security consultant and public speaker. But in his past life, Mr. Johnson was referred to by the United States Secret Service as “The Original Internet Godfather” – a central figure in the cybercrime world for over 20 years.

The educational program that follows is one of the best we have ever presented. Attendees can choose from three distinct breakout tracks – Financial Institution, ISO/IAD, or ATM Industry. These 40-minute sessions run concurrently and cover a broad range of topics. And be sure to stay for all of Day 3. Six Plenary Sessions are scheduled, leading off with a session on “A Vision for the Next 25 Years of Financial Self-Service”.  Stuart Mackinnon, COO of NCR Atleos, explores how the ATM has become the critical counterpart to digital finance, and takes a look at how ATMs will serve as the critical link between digital finance and the physical world in the future.   

I hope to see you in Las Vegas on February 14 – 16 for this fantastic event.

Best regards to all,
David
