One of the most primitive industries, identity is also advancing with new technology to verify and authenticate, enhancing many other sectors.

Threats to our personal, national and global security have soared while consumer satisfaction is ever determining whether businesses succeed or fail in a modern world.

At its core, Identity Week America is a multi-dimensional event that creates and manifests new applications of physical and digital identity across four main sectors that are advancing at a rapid rate.

One of the key sectors that the event targets and allies with in promoting new identity solutions and strategies is the Travel and Aviation industry.

We have amassed an incredible line-up of top representatives from the travel industry, Government counter-terrorism bodies and national independent organisations.

They include: Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, US Customs and Border Protection, the Transportation Security Administration and Richard Clarke, Former National Coordinator for U.S. Counter-terrorism, all of whom will make their pledges to the future of identity at the number #1 meeting place of the year – Identity Week America!

Attend our FREE Expo to mingle with these individuals and thousands more!

Through sessions, keynote presentations, roundtables and fundamental networking, the event will dissect how advanced facial recognition and digital ID testing is across all industry case studies.

Our inspiring sessions will discover what most excites speakers about biometrics for the aviation and travel industry and how we can successfully transform travel with digital identity, adopting approaches to innovation for security effectiveness and the passenger experience.
