Cardtrex North America 2018
September 27 - September 28
CardTREX North America is a one-and-a-half day conference that focuses on regional challenges and opportunities for card manufacturers, personalizers and suppliers along with the latest trends, technology and innovations. This event is geared to technical and production staffs as well as executives and business owners in the transaction card industry. As the leading global card association, ICMA is excited to be planning our third, newly formatted CardTREX North America, a regional journey for card education set for September 27-28, 2018. Formerly known as the ICMA North American Workshop, CardTREX North America offers enhanced education and networking, as well as a showcase for exhibitors to share their products and ideas with card manufacturers, personalizers and suppliers. As the industry continues to evolve with new and emerging technologies and markets, companies are faced with evaluating their strategies for the future. CardTREX North America delivers greater education and networking on a regional level. Past seminars have included: Chip Embedding and Inlays; Production Driving Profitability; Near Field Communication (NFC), and Alternative Substrates. Our 2018 event will include a tour of Entrust Datacard and also features a networking dinner and Networking Zone – exhibit stations that allows card suppliers an opportunity to display product literature and other information for card manufacturers, giving production/operations personnel who typically attend CardTREX a chance to meet their suppliers. The event also features a Speed Share session, when exhibitors talk about their products, followed by a vote on the best product of the show. CardTREX North America is open to ICMA members and non-members, however, ICMA members receive significant discounts. Non-members are encouraged to attend to see what ICMA events have to offer.
