Smart Card Alliance Events

The Alliance hosts two important industry conferences each year–the Smart Cards in Government Conference in the spring and an Annual Conference in the fall–and periodic web seminars. These popular events attract a broad audience to learn about new smart card initiatives, applications and technology.

The Annual Conference takes place each year in a selected East Coast or West Coast city. This plenary style conference brings together the leading end-user organizations and industry experts who share their insight and vision of how smart cards are applied in all markets. Speakers and panels discuss the technological innovations that are driven by market demands for faster, more capable and more secure solutions to meet different market demands.

The Smart Cards in Government Conference each spring focuses on the massive deployment of smart cards in government programs worldwide. Each year, the smart card industry gathers in Washington, DC, to hear from government leaders and industry professionals on what is happening in this rapidly moving and changing security and identity credential industry segment. This event also features an exhibit hall that provides vendors with the opportunity to demonstrate their industry-leading technology to a large body of government decision makers and end-users.

The Alliance also sponsors periodic web seminars and briefings on topics of interest to the industry.
