Wise Media, organizer of the ID WORLD International Congress, has announced the new roadmap of ID WORLD events taking place over the next 12 months, which reflects a significant expansion plan of annual regional summits in addition to the world summit hosted for the ninth time in Europe in November 2010.

"In 2010, ID WORLD will go live with two major events, paving the way to our regional expansion plan," says Sophie B. de la Giroday, President of Wise Media.

"This development will result in the entire ID WORLD concept, with its different ramifications and special initiatives, being taken to key regions and markets where the ID Revolution continues its reach. The immediate goal is to bring the ID WORLD paradigm to life beyond our Annual World Summit, with the EMEA and the Americas as a start."

The first of these appointments, part of the ID WORLD calendar of events, is ID WORLD Abu Dhabi 2010 - the new annual EMEA summit on security and mobility, which opens its doors in the UAE on May 3 and 4, under the patronage of UAE Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, H.H. Sheik Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan. ID WORLD Abu Dhabi will host the Citizen ID Forum, the Transportation Security Forum and the Asset Tracking Forum that in the last four years, took place in Q1 and Q2 as separate events in Berlin, Rome, Vienna, Istanbul, Milan, Amsterdam, Paris and twice in Abu Dhabi.

ID WORLD Abu Dhabi will also include two special initiatives, the inaugural Postal Innovation Conference and the NFC Academy Conference. Postal Innovation is the world's first forward thinking highend technology congress offering a showcase of the most advanced technologies and applications aimed at improving postal and express shipping services and illustrating how they can best be implemented on a global scale to improve business and create new sources of revenue. The NFC Academy Conference, established as a premier highend technology initiative focusing on near field communication and its applications, returns to the region after its high profile launch in Abu Dhabi in February 2009.

In November, the Annual World Summit on automatic identification will open its doors for the ninth time: ID WORLD International Congress will take place in Milan on November 16 to 18.

"As the established thought leadership symposium, ID WORLD will again exceed all other events worldwide in terms of active participation from the CEOs of our industry. In addition, top level businessoriented networking will augment its vibrant public exhibition," adds Sophie B. de la Giroday.

In Q1, 2011 ID WORLD will open in North America with its inaugural Annual Americas Summit, ID WORLD New York City, with a special focus on governmentdriven initiatives, transportation and healthcare.

The events in Abu Dhabi, Milan and New York will have both a global and regional focus on automatic identification and wireless technologies with a concentrated conference program of plenary sessions, breakout seminars and workshops, as well as exclusive networking initiatives and exhibitions to ensure that delegates and exhibitors get maximum value from their participation.

ID WORLD's comprehensive approach to the evolving world of RFID, biometrics, smart cards, data collection, identity management and technologies and their applications, makes it the only international initiative that looks at the world of automatic identification as a whole, rather than focusing on a specific technology or vertical market. Since 2002, ID WORLD International Congress has enjoyed an impressive track record, growing over the years to annual event that today attracts the most important players of the ID community at industry, enduser and government levels worldwide.

In 2010, the ID WORLD calendar of events include ID WORLD Abu Dhabi, the Annual EMEA Summit, taking place in Abu Dhabi, UAE on May 3 - 4 and the ID WORLD International Congress taking place in Milan, Italy on November 16th to 18th. In Q1 2011, ID WORLD New York City, the Annual Americas Summit, will take place in New York.
