FRANCE: Cartes & IDentification 2011, the leading 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. 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 trends 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. With 142 countries participating in the event, CARTES is surely a reflection of a dynamic international market.
Innovation in mode of payments
With the deployment of contactless technology, the advent of NFC terminals for mobile payments, 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.
