What they say


This is what some of our members and guests had to say:

About our Forum meetings

“Smartex is an extremely valuable platform to bring together key industry players in what is a highly fragmented and complex application domain.  Without the leadership to orchestrate and challenge key topics in Identification it would be far more difficult for the many players in this ecosystem to move forward and leverage the business growth opportunities based on making the technology easy to use and secure.”
NXP Semiconductors

“The knowledge shared and networking makes this the most value for money event I’ve ever attended.”

About our HESCA Conference and Exhibition

“An amazing event as always, out-measured only in how informative it was.  I left with an abundance of literature and contact details, and more importantly, live case studies of how universities out in the field are utilising / embracing current technologies, based on cards and Apps.”

“As I’ve not exhibited before I cannot make any comparisons with previous events but on face value can’t really think of how anything could have been done better than it was. One very positive comment is about the breakout sessions, thanks for talking me in to doing it, the concept is a great idea.”

About our TCF Conference and Exhibition

“Another great Smartex TCF event. Thank you Annabel and Richard for putting on another successful event, thoroughly enjoyable, educational and productive.”

“Congratulations on a terrific conference, I wasn’t there last year but the short sharp presentations are excellent. Great networking opportunities and a good layout of the conference and exhibiter area…”

“It was a very useful day and well run. Your insistence on short presentations worked very well as they were focused with the minimum of repetition.”

“I was very impressed by the event and the wide community of interest that you have. Thanks to you guys for organising such a great well organised show! You made it look effortless in organising.  Look forward to more of them.”

About our Workshops

“Smartex provided a fantastic two-day session which will provide a solid grounding for any professional who wishes to understand the key technologies that underpin payments in the mass transit industry. A high calibre cross-section of industry players from platform providers, transit operators and consulting backgrounds provided a series of detailed presentations which culminated in lively debates. I took away valuable new insights into the future direction of the technology.”

 About our independent consultancy services

“Smartex, through its experience and deep knowledge of the whole smart card field has provided the University of the Arts with a great insight into the use of smart cards in higher education.  Smartex then worked with us to produce a set of detailed recommendations for our new access control system.  They are now adding significant value by assisting us with implementing this scheme in what is a very tight timescale.  Smartex’s practical and cost effective approach to higher education smart card schemes, based on their unrivalled experience, is both unique and refreshing.”

About our Smartexpress daily news service

“…I think your Smartex news-stream is of the highest quality. I know how much it takes to seek out, trawl through and then edit down material like this and you do it every day while retaining its relevance and interest.  Kudus to you and your team.”
