After a 2-year virtual journey, Mastercard will bring together face-to-face experts in finance, innovation and technology, as well as global executives from the payments industry, to discuss trends for the Latin American region in the areas of cybersecurity, AI, cryptocurrencies, metaverse, open banking and fintech. 

Mastercard Latin America and the Caribbean Innovation Forum 2022 is the company's annual flagship event and an opportunity for clients - banks, merchants, fintechs, exchanges - to share ideas and their vision for the future of commerce.

Carlo Enrico, President of Mastercard for Latin America and the Caribbean, will open the forum with the presentation "Intersection of technology, business and the human-centered future".

The program will continue with sessions featuring Michael Casey, chief content officer of Coindesk; Ian Bremmer, American political scientist and writer; Cathy Hackl, global expert on technology and the metaverse, among other Mastercard executives such as Craig Vosburg, chief product officer; Chris Reid, Executive vice president of Cyber Identity and Intelligence Solutions; and Raj Seshadri, president of data and services, among others.

In its 11th edition, the forum is being held under the theme "Converge", precisely to analyze the unique moment that humanity is living, where the digital and physical worlds are intertwined to open up new possibilities for social and economic interaction.
