Member Benefits

Apart from the substantial cost-saving of membership when compared with the price of attendance at most public conferences, members of Smartex Forums also enjoy a wide range of specific benefits, including: 

Learning from the experts

  • Each Forum meeting offers attendees the opportunity to hear topical presentations from professional speakers at a fraction of the cost of an industry conference.  Each forum is chaired by an industry specialist, and interactive debate is encouraged.  Lively question and answer sessions are the norm.

Meeting the industry

  • The opportunity for delegates to network informally at each Forum over lunch, refreshment breaks and in the bar afterwards, remains a vital part of the success of every Smartex meeting.  With other attendees being current users, suppliers or potential customers, members are encouraged to network openly and freely throughout the day.

Keeping up-to-date

  • Smartexpress – your pain-free daily news update, keeping you abreast of the latest breaking industry news about smart technology, IoT, biometrics, mobile & NFC, RFID and payments.

Getting known by the industry

  • The opportunity to advertise your company’s services on all Smartex website pages and in Smartexpress (at discounted cost).  Members are also often invited to present at meetings if they have new and relevant projects, products or services to offer.  Service providers can also sponsor and exhibit at our two 2-day industry events for the TCF and HESCA.

Reviewing the world of smart technology

  • Smartex-organised and led annual group visit a major overseas industry event, at discounted rates for members.  This is being reviewed for 2022/2023, and new overseas tours may be offered.
