Future of Cash in Vienna

The next Future of Cash conference will take place 4-5 October 2017 in Vienna, Austria. This will be the 14th version of the event, which was one of the first of its kind in the industry to focus on securing the future of cash through innovative thinking and operational efficiencies. It brings together stakeholders involved in the whole cash cycle and last year attracted over 130 delegates from 75 different organisations spanning central banks, financial institutions, retailers, cash management companies, technology providers and other suppliers.

The event has led to some fascinating debates and this year will be no different, with new insights to the life cycle of banknotes and enhanced controls, how applying today’s industry standards and technologies like big data analytics allow smarter decisions on the future of cash and forecasting future banknote demand.

Consumers want to and continue to use cash not only to make payments, but also for their savings, budgeting, protecting their privacy and as a back-up. However the issue still remains whether cash has a future. What retailers and banks should be doing to continue to offer choices to consumers in a more efficient way will be the focus of the two-day programme.

The first session - Setting the Scene - will feature an overview of the Austrian cash cycle from the Austrian Central Bank, the evolution of cash demand in the euro area from the ECB and the importance of central bank money as an alternative to private money from Norges Bank. In this session will debated some of the fundamental trends shaping the cash cycle.

It will be followed by a session on The Utility Model - Does it Work?, which will include presentations from GSA and NOKAS. There will then be two sessions on Improving the Efficiency of Cash, and Improving the Cash Cycle respectively, with presentations from Giesecke + Devrient Santander and Garanti Bank in the fist, and Caixa Geral de Depositos and ESTA in the second.

The following day, Understanding Cash Usage will be covered by the Bank of England, Glory, Vaultex, Deutsche Bank and UK Cash Services. The penultimate session - Is Cash a Profitable Banking Product? - will be addressed by Barclays Bank, Piraeus Bank and Weiden Technical University of Applied Sciences.

The conference will conclude with an innovation panel on cash payments solutions for the 21st century, with panellists from ATMIA, Prosegur and Barzahlen.
