CARTES Secure Connexions Becomes TRUSTECH
This 17-19 November at the Paris Nord Villepinte Parc dispositions Exhibition Centre the CARTES Secure Connexions 2015 – the world’s leading trade show for secure solutions in payment, identification, and mobility – will be held for the 30th time already. In 2015 it was changing its name to TRUSTECH.
The event brings together leading developers and suppliers of a wide range of solutions for the card industry – from equipment, components, and related products to produce cards to complex processing solutions. During the congress, which is held in parallel with the trade show, experts from around the world share their experiences and learn about recent innovations related to plastic cards and electronic payments.
For 30 years, CARTES Secure Connexions has been the world’s leading secure-connections trade event at the intersection of finance, mobile, retail, government, identity and access, telecommunications, transportation, and data security sectors. CARTES Secure Connexions is the largest global event bringing together the key decision-makers worldwide from the payments, identification, and mobility ecosystem. With over 400 exhibitors and some 20,000 attendees every year, the event gathers 3000 CEOs & General Managers, 675 banks and financial institutions, 750 system integrators, 625 card manufacturers, and 155 governmental bodies from 50 countries and 180 telecom operators.
CARTES Secure Connexions was founded 30 years ago to promote a technology that had just been created: the chip card. Since then, the world has changed – and multiple new technologies have emerged. So the name TRUSTECH reflects this evolution of the industry. Trust in the security of sensitive data is critical for the development of new applications and uses in our increasingly connected world. TRUSTECH aims to be the hub of the international secure-connection community, help market players define future strategies, develop the ways the technologies are used and generate business opportunities.
This year such topics as machinery for the production of cards, personalization, printing, accounting, and packaging; engineering (systems, networks, information processing), equipment for data collection (terminals, stamps, readers, smart mobile devices, special equipment) will be discussed.
Special attention will be paid to new trends in payments and telecommunications. Shortly, payment, retail, and telecommunications – which will have to adapt to mobile payment systems – will face the greatest technological change. Among this year’s 33 SESAMES Award finalists are Giesecke & Devrient – whose Convego® CloudPay end-to-end mobile payment solution supports all major payment schemes (MasterCard, Visa, and AMEX) well as regional or local payment schemes.
