Mobilisation and Innovation for the 30th Edition of CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS, a Singular Edition, Tinged with Emotion
This year’s CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS took place from 17 to 19 November in the Paris-Nord Villepinte exhibition centre in unusual circumstances. In the aftermath of the tragic events in Paris of 13 November, which impacted us all, the exhibitor and visitor figures published in the traditional end-of-event press release reflect the resilience that participants wished to demonstrate at this time.
Despite the tragic events on 13 November 2015 in Paris, CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS confirmed that it remains the must-attend event in the trust technologies industry.
Over 3 days, the world's Number 1 event in payment and identification technologies attracted a total audience of 15,090, including 1,800 CE0s. 135 countries were represented, making for turnout that was 77% international. 394 companies, 82% from abroad, exhibited their line-ups.
A place for doing business, interacting and engaging in reflection
CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS 2015 offered an ideal setting for shared reflections and discussion about key issues and prospective responses, including numerous special talks that combined to offer a 360° view of the market.
The event started with a bang, as Uri Levine, Co-Founder of Waze and
Feex, took to the stage as the Opening SUMMIT's keynote speaker. He is a
serial start-upper, having sold his first start-up for over USD 1
billion to Google.
The CEOs of Spire, Infineon Technologies, Entrust Datacard and Worldline were also on the scene to share their vision of the sector.
A schedule bursting with more than 100 conferences on current and prospective issues featured 139 speakers. The three topics that attracted the largest audiences this year were:
- HCE & Tokenization: What Role for the Secure Element?
- e-Documents & e-ID as Drivers for Cross-Sector and Border Digital Services
- New Business Models: What Impact on the Banking, Telco & Retail Industries?
11 Trophées SESAMES Awards were given on 17 November, including one Golden SESAMES, which went to Infineon for OPTIGA™ Trust E – enabling the IoT, a turnkey secured solution for automated industrial systems in domotics and personal devices.
The start-up Izicap won the Startup Challenge thanks to a marketing and loyalty-building solution that turns consumer bank cards into loyalty cards, and by the same token, makes payment terminals customer relations management tools in their own right.
The Innovation TV was one of the new additions in 2015, and hosted more than 50 speakers over the three-days.
Claire de Longeaux, the Exhibition's Director, shared her perspective: "CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS 2015 opened its doors - just days after the 13 November attacks in Paris - under circumstances which no one could have imagined. We are all the more grateful and proud of the exhibitors, who made the extra effort so that the event could take place. On the visitors' end, yes, participation was lower than expected. Yet in that respect too, in our deeply-shaken environment, the industry came through and mobilised, and it is our pleasure to announce that CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS was, once again this year, THE world's foremost event for payment and identification technologies. We already look forward to welcoming you to TRUSTECH 2016 next November.

Koza Altin Welcomes Court’s Rejection of Akin Ipek’s Share Purchase Agreement13.7.2018 15:58 | Pressemelding
A Turkish Court has found against businessman Akin Ipek this week – ruling that a share purchase agreement, which he had submitted as vital evidence in support of his case against the Turkish state, is null and void. The matter was brought to the Ankara Commercial Court in March 2017 by Koza Holding (parent company of Koza Altin) which, according to Mr Ipek’s share purchase agreement, purportedly transferred all of its shares to Ipek Investment Limited. Koza Holding filed the lawsuit for legal recognition that the share purchase agreement is void. The ruling in Turkey follows on from an earlier judgment set down by the English High Court, which rejected Mr Ipek’s attempt to use up to £3m of UK subsidiary Koza Ltd’s money to fund a claim against the Turkish State at the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). In the English ruling, Deputy Judge Richard Spearman QC declared the “authenticity” of the share purchase agreement as “open to very serious doubt”. The
