The National Money Transmitters Association (the "NMTA") was born out of the need of money transmitters to have a voice in shaping and developing this industry. The Association, started in 1999, channels the concerns of licensed money transmitters across the United States and provides a mechanism to address issues that impact our business, with the strength and support of a national organization.
The NMTA began the first convention in 2006 in Miami. Its Executive Director, David Landsman, had the vision to create an industry meeting after some failed attempts to gather the industry together. The NMTA continued developing and growing the "International Money Transmitters Convention" until 2010 when it decided to make a first partnership with Mohr World Consulting. Hugo Cuevas-Mohr, MWC's CEO, a long-time industry leader, joined forces with the NMTA bringing marketing and business experience into the development of the conferences. In 2011 Mohr World Consulting took full responsability of developing IMTC and the Conference's name changed to "International Money Transfer Conference" as the place where the Money Transfer Industry meets. The Trade Fair was developed as well as the seminars and new conferences were started, like IMTC WEST, IMTC BRASIL and IMTC MEXICO.
