CARTES & IDentification Trade Show 2011

The CARTES & IDentification Trade Show 2011 kicks off


The international digital security and smart technologies event will be held from November 15 to 17, 2011 at the Parc des Expositions in Paris Nord Villepinte.

Never have the words "Business, Innovation, Discovery" more aptly described the CARTES & IDentification Trade Show — the world No. 1 event in digital security, smart technology, payment and contactless — to be held in Paris from 15 to 17 November 2011. At this real hub of innovation, an expected 20,000 visitors and 1,300 delegates will be the very first to discover all the latest international smart technologies and identification market news from the 450 companies present at the benchmark event. For this 2011 edition, Turkey will be in the spotlight.

With each edition of its 26-year history, CARTES has established itself increasingly as the sector's business event of choice, where international suppliers can meet decision makers in the areas of payment, security, telecoms, electronics and information technology, administration and distribution. Ever more international, with 142 countries participating, CARTES is the reflection of a very dynamic market.

At the heart of innovation in payments

With the deployment of contactless technology, the advent of NFC terminals for payment by mobile, the growing need for secure electronic transactions and innovative financial services, the payment card industry will be at the forefront of the development and sharing of new technology solutions in 2011.

Contactless payment will be the subject of a round table discussion organised during the trade show's launch presentation, to be held on 26th May at 9:00 at the Hotel Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme.

IDentification: Issues increasing on a world scale

The introduction of electronic identity cards in several European countries1, the projects around digital identity and the fight against cybercrime are promoting the development of identification technologies. The IDentification sector is an opportunity to highlight the latest innovations in biometrics and authentication solutions, with significant potential applications.

The great potential of M2M

New business opportunities will again be represented at the trade show this year with applications in M2M and the Internet of Things. Although millions of machines already communicate with each other, M2M technology is merely at the beginning of its enormous potential for growth.

The use of home automation, smart meters and the management of health records, require greater protection of private data, control of their integrity, strong authentication with secure data and "over-the-air" applications.

Turkey in the spotlight

With a leading European market in ATMs, up 40% over the last 5 years in terms of cards produced, and the dynamic introduction of new contactless solutions and loyalty programs, Turkey offers numerous opportunities for development.

Delegations of Top Buyers, a specific focus at the conference and new partners will showcase this exciting market.

Turkey has indeed already proven its ability to innovate in the field of smart cards — a growing rapidly sector in the country. With a population of 77.8 million, including 63 million mobile phone users, Turkey represents a great potential for the payment industry. The adoption of contactless technology is growing in urban areas and looks set to progress still further as banks compete to conquer the growing urban youth segment.
