The global event for innovative payments and identification solutions

TRUSTECH is the international meeting place for professionals in the innovative payment and identification sector. The next edition will be held from December 3 to 5, 2024 at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, Pavillon 5.2.

Created more than 30 years ago under the name CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS in order to promote the newborn technology of smartcards, the event was renamed TRUSTECH in 2016 to better reflect the evolution of the sector and in particular all the technologies involved in the markets related to innovative payments and identification.

TRUSTECH welcomes international exhibitors, sponsors and startups from the card and digital trust technology sector. They come to present their latest innovations and solutions, announce product launches on their booth or during pitch sessions on the Innovation Stage, a space located in the heart of the event. Visitors are high-level professionals looking for products and solutions adapted to their specific needs in terms of secure technologies and applications, in the digital security (identity, access control, government & administrations) and payment (banks, finance, payment institutions) sectors.

These players from the world of tech, smartcards, innovative payments and identification meet to discover innovations and discuss major industry issues during conferences.

Admission to the event is free for professionals and covers both the visit to the show and participation in the conferences during the 3 days.

The Promosalons network markets the show in several countries (Korea, Netherlands). Register here to participate in the next event.
