ICMA’s Global EXPO for Card Manufacturers and Personalizers
ICMA’s Card Manufacturing & Personalization EXPO, with exhibits, education and networking, took place March 26-29, 2018, at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate in Florida.
Grow professionally and get the essential education you need to excel in the global card industry by attending the next EXPO. There was an abundance of networking opportunities, including the chance to meet top card suppliers, personalizers and manufacturers, with over 70 exhibits. ICMA EXPO exhibitors are global industry leaders who manufacture and supply materials and services to the card manufacturing and personalization industry.
The EXPO again featured a comprehensive conference program and dedicated exhibition hours, and a number of ICMA members shared their expertise by delivering a presentation at the event.
For the third year in a row, ICMA co-located the EXPO with the Secure Technology Alliance Payments Summit. Secure Technology Alliance is an international, multi-industry association working to stimulate adoption of smart card and advanced payment technology. The EXPO was also co-located this year with the U.S. Payments Forum All Members Meeting.
The co-located events included educational tracks on trends for card manufacturers and personalizers as well as emerging payment applications and new technologies for mobile and transportation payments. “With the future in mind, our card industry members had diverse, contemporary, and unique opportunities to explore in Orlando,” said Jeffrey Barnhart, executive director and founder of ICMA. Barnhart continued, “As always, attendees were invited to educate, learn and network while gaining valuable insight on trends and new technologies in security and payments, as well as market forecasts.”
