PARIS--()--Business Wire, a world leader in news distribution, and CARTES 2012, the world-leading event for smart technologies devoted to security, payment, identification and mobility, to be held in Paris from November 6 through 8 2012, are consolidating their media partnership for this event, which annually brings together 430 exhibitors, 20,000 visitors and 1,300 international congress participants. For several years, this event has set the pace for the market and for innovations in the sector.
“Through this partnership, Business Wire helps exhibitor companies with their news distribution and provides solutions to gain visibility in the international media.”
For this, its 27th annual show, CARTES 2012 has selected two major themes, mobile payment and cloud security, and has chosen India as guest of honor.
"Recent developments in mobile payment and cloud security mean we are faced with major technological, economic and social challenges, and communication are also partly linked to these developments. Business Wire is therefore proud once more to be in partnership with CARTES, an event which has now taken permanent root not only in France, but also in Asia and in the United States", explains Olivier Corneloup, Director of Business Wire France, Southern Europe & the Middle East. "Through this partnership, Business Wire helps exhibitor companies with their news distribution and provides solutions to gain visibility in the international media."
For Isabelle Alfano, Director of Salon CARTES, “mobile payment and cloud security are two of the main challenges that will be faced, especially by businesses specialized in smart technologies and authentication, over the next five years. CARTES being the key event in the smart technologies industry in terms of trends and innovative technological solutions, it was obvious to us that these developments would play a fundamental role in this event.”
As every year, CARTES will also be rewarding innovative companies with its SESAME Awards, which have the status of benchmarks for industrial players in this sector. They represent a real promotional springboard for the victors and legitimize their projects.
CARTES 2012 is thus a unique place for meeting people, sharing ideas and doing business: congress, exhibition, SESAME Awards, guest of honor, etc. 3 busy days that should reconfirm that this event is THE international gathering not to be missed.
