LAS VEGAS -- The upcoming ATM Industry Association's annual conference and tradeshow is scheduled for Feb. 6-8 at the Wynn - Las Vegas, and is currently on track to surpass last year's attendee and exhibitor turnout.

"We've been running ahead of last year the whole time as far as booth sales and registrations," said David Tente ATMIA's executive director, USA, Latin America. "We did Las Vegas for the first time in 2015 and it was the best attendance of any of our conferences. This year's event will have a bigger exhibit floor than the last couple of years. And at this point we have only a few booths and a few sponsorship opportunities left."

Vegas glitz is only part of the motivation for the anticipated record-breaking attendance. This year's theme, Innovate and Succeed: The Next Decade for ATMs is reflected in a program that features a full slate of workshops and educational sessions. These range from cardless transactions and other innovations that offer new opportunities from customer services to the latest in ATM security. Also highlighting this year's event will be a keynote address by Theresa Payton, former White House CIO and cybersecurity authority who stars in the hit CBS show Hunted.

"We think it will be over 1,100 attendees, and I'm crossing my figures that it will be closer to 1,200," Tente said. "We also draw pretty well internationally, we've been up over a hundred international delegates with 28 or 30 different countries represented."

ATMIA is the leading nonprofit trade association representing the global ATM industry. ATMIA serves more than 10,000 members from 650-+ companies in over 70 countries spanning the whole ATM ecosphere, including financial institutions, independent ATM deployers, equipment manufacturers, processors and value-added solution providers.
