Trustech 2016, at the Top of the Bill

This time, it was the stars of the trust-based technologies industry and other budding talents who climbed the steps of the Palais des Festivals for the first Cannes edition of TRUSTECH.

Lead by the journalists Laura Shin (Forbes) and Jemima Kelly (Reuters), the biggest names of the industry shared the stage: Adrian Ludwig, Director of Engineering, Lead Engineer, Android Security of GOOGLE, JB Straubel, Co-founder and CTO of TESLA MOTORS, Osama Bedier, Founder and CEO of POYNT, Nicolas Arpagian, Strategy and Public Affairs Director of ORANGE CYBERDEFENSE, Kevin Slavin, Founder and Director of the “Playful Systems” Division of the MIT MEDIA LAB, June Yee Felix, President Europe of VERIFONE, Didier Serodon, Chairman of EUROSMART, Jason Lane, Executive VP Market Development Europe of MASTERCARD, Damien Perillat, General Manager France of PAYPAL and Eric Tak, Global Head ING Payment Centre of ING.

“What a turn out! It is the general feeling expressed in the alleys of TRUSTECH, the biggest international event on trust-based technologies for payment and identification. Cannes and its Palais des Festivals definitely have something to do with it. 15,000 attendees, 350 exhibitors and sponsors (with 130 new ones) and 250 speakers were reunited for 3 days – mostly from outside France as well as 43 startups and FinTech. This new environment is ideal for networking. Our long-standing partners are glad they followed us in this new adventure”, explained Claire de Longeaux, Director of TRUSTECH.
