Contactless Cards 2007 June 25th & 26th, London

SMi’s Contactless Cards Conference will bring together leading industry players to discuss the latest opportunities and challenges within the market focusing on advanced transport systems, operator networks, payment applications, passports and IDs.

After the two-day event Consult Hyperion will also be holding a half-day interactive workshop – ?1+1 = 3? Contactless + Mobile = Something Special which will look at the question: Is the hype around NFC and mobile phones justified? The workshop will attempt to answer this question based on practical experiences developing NFC applications for clients in the finance, transport, telecommunications and technology sectors, while simultaneously acting as a mobile/NFC boot camp.
