The European Association for Biometrics (EAB) and Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, the organizer of the Euro ID and ID World International Congress, have entered into a long term cooperation that aims at creating a platform on biometrics and identity within the event.
Under the new partnership, both the EAB and Mesago have agreed upon a mutual marketing and communication agreement that they say will significantly increase the outreach and coverage of mutual communication channels.
“We are happy that Mesago has selected EAB as strong partner to further develop this major event by bringing in the largest network on biometrics and identity in Europe,” Max Snijder, Secretary of the EAB said. “Together with Mesago we will bring the topic of biometrics towards specific vertical market segments, broadening the scope of identity with the various aspects of biometrics. Events like Euro ID and ID World International Congress will further leverage the EAB’s impressive network, that spans from state of the art European academic researchers to governments and industries.”
Part of this agreement is the establishment of a Biometrics Pavilion at the exhibition, which will function as “a one-stop-shopping for anyone having an interest in biometrics.”
“We are impressed by the rapid growth and high quality of the EAB members base. Together with the EAB we will ensure biometrics to be an integral part of the portfolio of Euro ID and ID World International Congress,” Maren Wiedleroither, VP of Message Messe Frankfurt GmbH said. “Through the Biometrics Pavilion our visitors will be able to get a full picture of the state of the art in biometrics, while we also offer small and medium biometric enterprises to receive strong exposure at a cost effective way.”
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, the EAB recently elected Bernard Didier, the founder of Morpho, as its first honorary member.
The EAB also recently opened registration for its seminar Biometrics in Banking, set to be held in Berlin next month, in May 2014.
