industry leadership at a critical time

“Our continuing mission is to create the world’s reference identity conference and exhibition, to showcase the potential of next-generation identity solutions, and to highlight how disruptive technology and policy decisions are driving much needed change.”



Through a world-class exhibition and conference, connect:ID 2019 will bring together identity technology innovators, industry disruptors, and solution providers with thought leaders and policy makers in markets where next-generation secure ID is desperately needed.

New secure, seamless ID solutions are essential, as authorities seek to provide citizens with better ways to identify themselves, so they can vote, pay, travel, work, interact, and transact without impediment.

New thinking is required as global identity fraud and personal data abuse threaten to spiral out of control, national security and cyber threats intensify, and passenger and migrant flows rise inexorably.
