A major new international conference and exhibition focusing on all aspects of human identity and the opportunities for its management in both the physical and digital worlds. The event, launching in Washington, DC, will bring together leading experts from industry, as well as adopters and government officials, to explore the development and fusion of multiple advanced identity technologies – including biometrics, secure credentials, and digital identity systems.

Science Media Partners Ltd and the International Biometrics & Identification Association (IBIA) today announce a visionary new conference and exhibition – connect:ID (http://www.connectidexpo.com). This major new international event will focus on all aspects of personal identity and the opportunities for its management in both the physical and digital worlds.

Taking place on March 17-19, 2014, in the heart of Washington DC, connect:ID will unite solutions adopters and stakeholders from the four corners of the globe and will explore the development and fusion of multiple advanced identity technologies – including biometrics, secure credentials and digital identity systems.

Identity is increasingly mobile, global and transactional, and this international conference and associated expo, will address the challenges and opportunities emerging from these important trends. The show focuses on a myriad of identity technology requirements in government, but it will also cover, in-depth, the bourgeoning need for effective identity solutions in the financial, healthcare and corporate sectors – as well as the consumer space, with the rise of the social network.

This new event is powered through an alliance between IBIA, the world’s leading identity industry association, and Science Media Partners Ltd, founder of the highly successful Security Document World (SDW) Exhibition, and the leading biometric online-information portal, Planet Biometrics.com.

Mark Lockie, Managing Director of Science Media Partners commented: “Government, commercial and consumer markets are in search of answers to the growing challenges associated with securing human identity in a privacy-sensitive manner. connect:ID will explore these real world requirements in an engaging, thought-provoking and inclusive environment that brings together all the stakeholders under one roof.”

Robert Harbour, IBIA Chairman and President, said: “The effective use of identity technologies is crucial to enhance security, productivity, and convenience in today’s increasingly connected world. connect:ID is therefore a most timely event and will focus on where identity technology and infrastructure is desperately needed. This inclusive and international event will be the place where everything ‘ID’ gets connected.”
