The event provided a global showcase for next-generation human identity solutions, focusing on intrinsic document security and on the new cutting-edge secure infrastructure now required to produce and use these advanced documents in live situations.

Join us as an exhibitor for SDW 2016 and be part of the most visited document security and government ID event in the world. With over 100 exhibitors accomodated, stand packages are available on a first come first served basis, in a variety of sizes and budgets.

There has been a wholesale shift to eIDs and ePassports by governments worldwide, driven by increasing need for security, privacy, strong authentication and convenience. In 2015, 88% of all credentials issued are expected to be eIDs, and eID adopter nations will outnumber those using traditional IDs by approximately four to one.

As a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, HID Global is a proven and respected brand in the access control and secure ID solutions industry. HID Global’s Government ID Solutions provide governments worldwide with highly customizable identity solutions. Currently, HID Global participates in more than 40 ePassport programs and 50 national/eID programs, and the list is growing.

A modern eID card enables a huge range of benefits for both governments and their citizens, including the ability to:
• Know who has entered or left the country;
• Ensure one legal identity for each ID card holder;
• Protect the rights of citizens and legal residents;
• Maintain security at borders and exercise control over refugee movements;
• Streamline access to government and social services;
• Pave the way for the introduction of a national health insurance service;
• Improve tax collection;
• Enable fair voting at elections.

SDW 2015 will be SDW‘s ninth year and it has cemented its position as the leading annual conference and exhibition in the security document, advanced border control, identity and document anti-counterfeiting industry.

Back in 2007, approximately 500 visitors attended our show. This successful start prompted more than 850 attendees at our event in 2008. For 2009 we achieved just over 1,000 visitors, and since then more than 1200 visitors have attended, rising beyond 1500 in 2014, placing it as the top show in this fast-moving business.

Designed by the editors of the critically acclaimed Security Document World news and information portal, our conference programme is always packed with an international line-up of quality speakers who will deliver an imaginative programme on issues that are of real consequence.
