Identity Week America 2022 is shaping up to be an unmissable event – at its core promising to deliver a buzzing atmosphere and genuine mix of suppliers, organisations, enterprises and public authorities to meet.
We have a hotbed of brilliant experts in biometrics, digital and physical identity that are preparing to head to Washington D.C. for the 8th edition of the conference – but who will be taking to the main stages?
We start as we mean to follow with an introduction and opening remarks from John Mears, the Chairman of IBIA, a leading voice in the biometrics and digital identity technology space that alone incorporates many of the key identity companies presenting their solutions in the Expo. The Association represents a spectrum of key industry providers across every digital ID application and biometric modality.
The keynote presentations taking place from 9-10:30 on Day 1 and 2 provide a snapshot of the quality, in-depth presentations that will follow throughout the conference and be divided into the specific challenges and successes facing large-scale projects and sectors.
