Why attend?

No matter what your interest in identity technologies, connect:ID has the answers…


connect:ID brings together government and industry, suppliers and buyers, thought leaders and end users. More than 1,400 attendees are expected and the far-reaching contacts of organisers Science Media Partners and the International Biometrics + Identity Association (IBIA), ensure that the people you want to meet will be at connect:ID.

The highly acclaimed connect:ID conference will explore, over three days, how secure identity technology is enhancing authentication, wherever it is used – from aviation and border control, to healthcare, finance, education and countless other markets.

Our exhibition also provides excellent learning opportunities, not only through the technologies and services on display but through our free seminar program - The Knowledge Exchange which is open to all attendees.
