The recently concluded Forum and Expo is an event where the main goal had been to gather people and inform them about the recent economic situations of varied markets and industries that cater to them.


The event included a special affair where veterans and experts from credit card institutions informed the people about credit card billing and other relevant matters.


Every year, the use of credit cards is being regulated. Policies formed through the CARD Act which brought changes in the payment system and acquisition of credit balances had been better explained in the said event. Such changes had affected most credit card companies and its customers. This was just only one of the agenda at the event. There are a lot of things that credit card consumers have known upon attending.


Executives from credit card companies were also invited to discuss several topics. With the rise of credit card usage, developments on this industry had enabled our economy to move forward. The event showcased current and possible changes for the development of our economy through credit card models like the use of new technologies and products. These issues that had been discussed by the credit card companies upon the participation of their consumers. For the cardholders, the information they learned at the event will definitely be a stepping stone for their economic growth and development.


During the economic recession, other liquidation problems that the country faced included credit card spending and loan payment. The event motivated people from the economic sector to improve basic systems and served to equip them with mechanisms to cope with the current economic trends.


A basic alternative that is being developed is the practice of pre-paid and debit cards, the Forum and Expo revealed. Problems with the use of credit cards are being mitigated when the business sector is assured that its customers have the capability of paying them.


Debit cards assure business firms that their borrowers have money in the bank. Pre-paid cards give trust to the payee because of the amount the borrowers deposited in their credit cards which can have limited consumption.


Another innovation that was introduced in the event is the use of mobile technologies for debit and credit card transactions. This system is more advantageous in the service sector and companies which cannot reach their clients immediately. This system is safer and faster because it allows for personal approval of transactions via computers or mobile phones.
