As one of the leading suppliers of payment and internet technologies Wirecard will take part at the Mobile World Congress, the world’s biggest mobile telecommunications fair. From February 27 to March 2 the mobile industry meets at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona to discuss about the most innovative trends in mobile telecommunications and about the latest technical innovations. Wirecard would like to invite customers and interested visitors to dive into the shopping experience of tomorrow at its booth 7D61. With a virtual-reality headset Wirecard turns this future shopping experience into reality and gives users the opportunity to interact with the virtual world by shopping virtual products. Via head-up display additional product information will be displayed to the virtual shopper. With this linkage between the online world and the stationary trading, Wirecard gives an idea of a future without queues at the Point of Sale where payments are invisible.

The Mobile World Congress is the leading fair of the mobile telecommunication industry and pioneer for the exhibition of latest technologies and innovative products. As a global technology provider, Wirecard offers a comprehensive range of mobile payment services to internationally operating distributors, sales managers and partners: PSP services, barcode payments, NFC/BLE solutions, contactless/virtual cards with real-time top up and mobile card readers. Moreover, Wirecard presents how the “Internet of Things” changes the future of payments at the Mobile World Congress: Fair visitors will be able to catch up on future payment options. Further details will be given in Barcelona. We are looking forward to welcoming you there!
