On 27-28 February 2014, APSCA will organise the 4th international conference on Latest Developments in Smart Card Manufacturing at the Sunshine Hotel in Shenzhen, China. The event will target smart card manufacturers and card factories in Asia -
the world's largest and fastest-growing manufacturing centre for dual-interface and contactless cards, contactless tickets/tokens and smart objects and devices - to examine and discuss recent challenges, developments, trends and future business for manufacturing smart cards.

Private Business Meetings on Day 2
APSCA will assist sponsors to arrange a series of
private business meetings with key customers and partners on the morning of day 2 of the event. The meetings will be held in a specially arranged Meeting Booth area in the same venue. Sponsors will have pre-arranged business meetings, lasting 25 minutes each, with decision-makers from manufacturers of cards and components from 9am - 12pm.

These private business meetings are designed to enable smart card manufacturers to solve pressing business challenges through in-depth, private discussions with suppliers, while providing an opportunity for suppliers to carry out pre-sales consultancy with prospective customers and initiate new business.
