"I would like to thank you and the Cartes North America organizers for an excellent show and conference. Cartes North America took place at the right time considering the card scheme announcements regarding EMV in the USA. The conference subject matter was well chosen to reflect today's technology and business needs. Cartes with their experience from their Paris show brought the right attendees and exhibitors to their first North America event. We will gladly provide presentations for future Cartes conferences."
Mansour Aaron Karimzadeh - SCIL
"Thank you for all your effort putting together CARTES North America. I was impressed with the level of conference attendees. The people we were able to speak with included CEOs and CTOs from significant companies throughout both North and South America. We had discussions and received interest from key banks throughout the region as well. NagraID Security plans on exhibiting again next year with a larger booth. I hope you are able to reserve a larger venue because this conference is perfect for the Americas and fills an important void in the industry today."
Donald E. Malloy, Jr. - NagraID
"Cartes North America has happened to be an outstanding event of it's kind  although being the first edition in this location because of the deep experience and exclusive quality understanding of Comexposium organization. The attendees and the audience was qualified and highly interested in the subjects presented in the event. Considering my part in the event as the speaker about world’s first information display card, the EMV credit card with a touchpad and screen is considered to be another good reason to speed up US EMV migration by the American attendees. The event as a whole has been very fruitful for all parties. Hasan Erdal, Vice President, TEB Card Payment Systems”
