I was very fortunate to be on the ETA Technology Committee who led the Round Table Discussion this year at the 2012 Strategic Leadership Forum, held at the Breakers Hotel in West Palm Beach. The participants included notable thought leaders and entrepreneurs who provided great insight into this topic which is evolving rapidly. It is remarkable to see how the aggregator/ “micro” merchant model, through the convergence of technology, is forever changing the industry. It will be interesting to see how providers respond to this new challenge, and potential opportunity, as they adapt their offerings.
Thanks to ETA for another great forum and we are looking forward to the 2013 Strategic Leadership Forum in Scottsdale, AZ!
