Have you heard of Finovate?
Finovate is a series of unique conferences that showcases the best new innovations in financial and banking technology via short, fast-paced demos (no slides allowed) and high-quality networking.
I heard about this from personal finance blogger, Ben Popken.

On a personal note, I think the more services that make it easier to pay bills is probably not the best thing for some people.
Bundle.com – A merchant review service that uses customer spending data so you can see what different psycho-eco-social demographics think of different restaurants and stores.
This sounds like a high level data mining where companies can get deep information about their consumers and how to get more money out of each group.
