The CARTES Secure Connexions Event 2013 will be held from 19 to 21 November 2013 at the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition centre. The central theme of this year’s show, “Building trust in mobile life”, will allow the key issues facing the sector to be addressed: Mobile Security, Secure Mobile Commerce, Digital Identity and Smart Cities. Brazil, a major reference in these trends related to “connected living” and one of the world’s great economic powers, will be the special guest country at CARTES 2013 and will take centre stage at the show’s various events.
Throughout the year, numerous events will be held to enrich this leading trade show: two press conferences (in June and September) on smart shopping and digital identity, the SESAMES awards ceremony on 18 November, the prestigious World Card Summit on 19 November and many more. Get your diary out!
CARTES Secure Connexions Event 2013 is a an event dedicated to secure payment, identification and mobility solutions. The show was met with great success in 2012 with 19,000 visitors, 1,600 conference attendees and 137 countries represented. This 28th CARTES show will again be the unmissable gathering for professionals in these sectors.
CARTES Secure Connexions therefore decided to make “Building trust in mobile life” its central theme in 2013. It has been divided into four sub-themes:
Mobile Security: Mobile payment, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), SIM card security, etc.
Secure Mobile Commerce: E-commerce, m-commerce, payment security, interconnected retail etc.
Digital Identity: Digital identity, authentication, partnering for digital trust etc.
Smart Cities: Object identities, machine to machine etc.
These are strategic fields where security and trust are key to successful growth in the mainstream market.
“The 28th CARTES Secure Connexions Event, to be held from 19 to 21 November 2013 at the Paris-Nord-Villepinte expo centre, will be a rich event with a focus on mobile life. Mobility, which has grown exponentially, offers a number of opportunities for security, payment, embedded intelligence and digital identity players in particular. So we are really looking forward to the sector’s big event,” explains Isabelle Alfano, CARTES Secure Connexions Event 2013 Trade Show Manager.
