The Dubai innovation center sits at the heart of Visa’s business development, helping Visa’s clients and partners in the CEMEA region to collaborate, co-create and explore the future of commerce and the impact of new technologies on the way we shop, pay and are paid.
The center was founded on a philosophy of collaboration and a mission to work with clients and partners to shape the future of commerce. This can be anything from envisioning the future of retail and urban mobility that lies at the heart of every city to building innovations for small merchants to help them grow their businesses – realised in purpose-built Experience Zones.
The Innovation center is an ideal platform for partners and clients to build upon technologies such as Tap to Phone, face payments and Pay on Delivery developing smarter payment solutions, while also creating cutting-edge technologies that leverage the blockchain, IoT, VR and biometrics.
