The 15th annual Future Travel Experience conference is next week, and FindBiometrics will be reporting live from the show floor.
It’s poised to be an important event for many in the biometrics industry, given the increasing use of such technologies in air travel and border security. A growing number of airports around the world are looking to biometrics like facial recognition in order to speed up passenger processing and boarding, while government authorities like US Customs and Border Protection are increasingly recognizing the security benefits of such biometric tech.
Interest in this kind of innovation has only amped up in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Biometrics will therefore fit right in under this year’s theme for FTE, “New Approaches for a New World”.
That theme – and various pertaining solutions – will be explored through four specialized conference tracks: “Future Airports”, “Digital and Innovation”, “Air Mobility”, and “Ancillary”. There will also be a special briefing and tour, entitled “TSA Advancing the Checkpoint Environment”, at McCarran International Airport – one of the hotbeds of biometric airport innovation in recent years.
Among the sponsors of the event are some of the biggest names in the biometrics industry, including IDEMIA, Paravision, and NEC. And speakers for this year’s Future Travel Experience will include executives from United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and Allegiant, among others.
FTE will run from December 7th to 9th at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. For those interested in attending, registration is still open.
