The SCLAA, as one of the host bodies of the Queensland Supply Chain and Logistics Conference, are pleased to advise that the Asia Pacific Smart Card Association (APSCA) will be co-locating their annual conference in 2015 with the 16th annual conference.

The Asia Pacific Smart Card Association (APSCA) is a non-profit, independent association for organisations in the smart card industry in the Asia Pacific region, and is the only regional industry association for organisations in the smart card, smart devices, contactless, mobile contactless/NFC, and ePassport businesses in Asia, focusing on multi-sector business and government applications.

Since established in 1997, APSCA has organised over 155 events, seminars, trainings and conferences across 12 countries in Asia focusing on the business and technology for smart cards, smart objects and smart devices. Many of these events were co-organised with government agencies, payment organisations, transport departments and mobile operators.

APSCA has one of the largest business networks with over 11,000 smart card industry executives from end-users and suppliers, including senior decision-makers from government agencies, banks, credit card companies, transport operators and revenue collectors, mobile operators and merchants responsible for issuing, accepting and processing millions of smart cards, smart and access devices, contactless cards and ePassports.

Right now, APSCA organises 7 – 8 conferences of various themes a year. A major milestone in 2013 was the launch of Identification & Management quarterly magazine (www.id-mgt.com) which aims to further promote applications of the latest technology for eID, border management, secure access, NFC, urban transport & mobility and smart life within the industry.

All attendees at the 16th annual QSCLC will also be able to attend any APSCA sessions that take their interest for free and vice versa. APSCA partners will also be showcasing their wares in a special data capture pavilion at the QSCLC this year.
