As the third edition of the NFC World Congress opens in Nice, France on September 24, we know we’re going to hear a lot of exciting news about promising offers and technical and commercial partnerships.
NFC definitely seems poised to become one of, if not, the major technology in mobile’s quest to make our lives easier. And it’s certainly no accident if the majority of smartphones sold in Europe since the beginning of the year now come with built-in NFC technology. Nor is it any coincidence if large-scale commercial NFC services are flourishing on every continent and in every industry: banking, transportation, distribution and even smart cities.
So the 2013 Congress will serve to confirm the market’s interest in these “contactless” solutions by collecting feedback from services developed all around the world: Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Poland, Russia, Turkey, USA, etc.
As one of the event’s sponsors, Orange will have a large presence at this year’s congress. Thierry Millet (Vice-President Mobile Payments and Contactless, Orange) and François Xavier Godron (Director of the NFC Program, Orange France) will present Orange’s strategy during plenary meetings.
Orange will also use its stand to demo a few innovative products that showcase its complete line of NFC services for the general public. All of our NFC specialists – including engineers, product managers and consultants – will be at the stand to talk about our access control, mobile payment and e-ticketing offers for smartphones.
Whether you’re interested in strategy, technical specifications or operational details, our people will be ready and eager to tackle every aspect of these crucial topics with you.
So we’ll see you in Nice next week at stand #32 as we gear up for the NFC explosion!
