Mastercard will host Age of Acceleration, its 2019 LAC Innovation Forum in Miami, with the promise to “blow your mind.”

This year, the LAC Innovation Forum promises to take us “on a journey through the era of 5G, AI, robotics, data, open banking, personalization, and more. It will be fast-paced, and maybe a little mind-blowing.”

Change is moving at lightning speed and it’s hard to keep up, especially when it comes to technology. How do we stay in control in an age of constant disruption? Innovation is said to make us more productive and efficient, but is the ensuing chaos worth it?

The ability to capitalize on opportunities and dodge threats with speed and assurance will separate the winners from the wishers. Truth is, the age of technology waits for no one.

Attendees will learn to adapt and use innovation to their organizations’ benefits and be ready for the next “big thing.”
