CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS Becomes TRUSTECH
In 2015, CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS, the world’s leading trade show for Secure Payment, Identification and Mobility, is changing its name. CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS was founded 30 years ago, to promote a technology that had just been created: the chip card. Today, the world has changed. Multiple new technologies have emerged and, along with them, multiple uses. 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, to help market players define future strategies, develop the ways the technologies are used and generate business opportunities.
TRUSTECH – THE WORLD’S LEADING TRUSTED-TECHNOLOGIES EVENT
Combining exhibition, conferences and awards, TRUSTECH is the world’s most ambitious global show dedicated to technological solutions around Trust and Security. Formerly called CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS, the 3-day event, held in Paris (France), is 30 years old this year. TRUSTECH’s mission is to be the hub of the international secure-connections community, as it addresses complex and diverse security issues, shapes future strategies and develops ways in which the new technologies will be used. Anticipating and promoting international trends and innovations in the digital society while facilitating business relations, TRUSTECH is THE annual rendezvous for international key players in the sector. As its slogan “Unlimited Innovation” suggests, the event showcases the latest and best innovations from around the world, and help develop the ways the technologies are used.

The event’s SESAMES awards for innovation have been recognized as a label of quality since 1995 and this year’s central theme is “Unlimited Innovation”.
TRUSTECH: Pay, Connect, Identify & Secure
It is estimated that by 2020 about 50% of the world’s population will have access to the Internet, 2/3 of every mobile connection will involve a smartphone and over 50% of transactions will be made with mobile devices. By 2020, smart watches in use will reach over 100 million, half the world will have national eID cards, 90% of cars will be connected and 1.2 billion mobile phones will have NFC technology. In the face of this rapid digital transformation, TRUSTECH stands out as the must-attend global event, where all technological solutions around secure-connections converge and the future of the sector takes shape.
