33 SESAMES Awards finalists

A highly acclaimed award in the industry, for twenty years the SESAMES Awards have been an occasion to recompense the best innovations in the fields of secure payment solutions, identification and mobility. A veritable promotional springboard, the SESAMES Awards give the winners visibility and legitimacy guaranteeing the success of their projects.

The 2015 edition of the SESAMES Awards is marked by a large participation and the addition of two new competition categories: the “Best Joint Initiative”, which honours joint projects designed by several companies having the same economic and social objectives; and the “Best Connected Objects Applications”, which recognises the massive growth of connected objects.

Out of the 15 different competing countries, all types of companies are represented i.e. from Startups to SMEs as well as major global companies.

11 Awards will be given during the ceremony, which will be held at CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS on 17 November at 6:00 p.m. in the Jean Thèves Amphitheatre (hall 4 entrance). The projects are selected on the basis of 3 fundamental criteria: the innovative character of the submitted product/service, its suitability in terms of the market and the strength of its sales arguments.

Exceptionally this year, a GOLDEN SESAMES award will be presented to honour the 20th anniversary of the competition. This award will honour the innovation that most impressed the judges this year.

The winners of each category will have the opportunity to present their innovation during the “Innovation Breaks” on the “INNOVATION TV” on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 November on the TV stage set up in CARTES SECURE CONNEXION (hall 3).
