CARTES & IDentification 2007 to go Japanese.

CARTES 2007 trade show on digital security, smart cards and identification, will take place from 13 to 15 November 2007 at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre. The 2007 edition of CARTES is expected to attract over 20,000 visitors, 480 exhibitors and 1,700 congress participants. The focus will be on identification and mobile transactions and the country under the spotlight will be Japan.

CARTES is recognised worldwide as the leading event for digital security and smart-card technologies. For this year's event, smart-card and identification specialists from around the world will be meeting once again in Paris to promote progress and excellence.

As in the past, CARTES 2007 will be highlighting the particularly dynamic identification sector. The IDentification show, which is dedicated to secure technologies and biometrics, will take place at the same time as CARTES, benefiting from synergies between the audiences of the two events. It will attract companies offering technologies and solutions relating to biometrics, document security, authentication, physical or logical access control, cryptography, RFID and e-government. The exhibitors will be demonstrating the latest solutions that address today's security needs. A visit to IDentification is essential to see the latest developments in these technologies.

For the 2007 event, there will be a special focus on Asia, with Japan as the guest of honour. Japan constitutes an unparalleled incubator for new technologies and its market is highly receptive to even the most avant-garde innovations, providing a backdrop for an ongoing stream of exciting experiments. The Japanese public can already enjoy the benefits of contactless devices, next-generation telephony, mobile-payment systems, multi-applications and biometrics. Japan will be making its presence felt at this year's show through its participation in the congress, special events in the exhibition halls and the presence of important decision-makers from Japanese companies.

The Mobile Transaction TechZone village will focus on security and mobile transactions. Mobile transactions, made possible by progress in contactless and multi-application technologies, are driving new applications and opening new perspectives for industry players. These technologies will naturally be in the spotlight at CARTES & IDentification 2007, in a dedicated space--NFC * RFID * M2M * Transaction Security * Kiosk Technologies.

The three-day Congress that is held during the event is an valuable source of information and know-how, featuring many presentations of international innovations. All the subjects covered relate to chip cards or identification, providing a broad and accurate view of the market. The conferences present today's most innovative projects and serve as a platform for interchange and contact between more than 1,700 visitors and speakers. The opening World Card Summit conference will also welcome an exceptional line-up of keynote speakers sharing their points of view and their visions of the market.
