Spaces for the more than 100-strong company exhibition, held from 10-11 June, sold out before Christmas.Designed by the editors of the critically acclaimed Security Document World news portal, the conference programme is packed with an international line-up of authoritative speakers covering issues such as next-generation identity, intrinsic document security and cutting-edge secure infrastructure.The first keynote speaker, on 9 June, will be Detective Chief Inspector Gary Miles, from the FALCON (Fraud and Linked Crime on-line) project, who will be covering the UK Metropolitan Police Service's response to fraud and cyber crime including identity document fraud. The first day also includes sessions exploring challenges and issues in the world of next-generation ePassports, and considerations in effective secure document design.In the evening, iconic London venue Quaglinos in Mayfair plays host to a glamorous gala dinner (sponsored by Veridos), with fine dining and sensational live music.Day two is headlined by a unique “views from the top” session, which will involve senior industry leaders sharing their thoughts on opportunities and challenges facing today's government ID sector.The second day also covers concepts such as identity in the digital economy, eID (electronic identity card) successes and trends in effective border management.Day three sessions cover sustainable citizen management solutions, secure eDriver licenses and secure document verification for the “untrained eye”.In 2014, the event achieved a record attendance of more than 1,600 visitors with 65 countries represented. It also welcomed more than 350 conference attendees, 250 government attendees (from 30 nations) almost 50 expert presenters and 105 exhibitors.”This event goes from strength-to-strength, and I would like to thank all speakers for their excellent input so far. The conference has more government speakers than ever before, as well as representation from the highest levels of industry,” said conference chairman and Science Media Partners founder Mark Lockie.”The conference programme this year continues its in-depth focus on traditional document design and counter fraud, but has expanded its coverage of next-generation identity technologies. In particular, smart secure credentials, biometrics, and the rise of digital identity systems are coming to the fore.”To see the complete list of speakers and programme, click here.Discounted rates to attend the conference are still available, including full access to all conference sessions, lunch and mid-session refreshments, entry to the SDW 2015 Exhibition, and access to post-event video presentations.Attendees wishing to visit the exhibition hall only are able to do so for free by pre-registering.SDW 2015 has a range of exciting offers for delegates from government and law-enforcement agencies including heavily subsidised rates and access to all DocEx 2015 conference sessions (including government-only sessions).Government delegates can also take advantage of a “Buy One, Get One Half Price offer”, which is valid when booking tickets at the same time during a single transaction.To book tickets for the Gala dinner at Quaglino's, Mayfair, click here.
