The independent Biometrics Institute proudly presents the Showcase Australia event in Canberra on the 18 November 2015. This annual Canberra event will present the latest biometric applications and technologies in an informal environment with a strong focus on networking.

Its 1 day format allows the biometric ‘community’ of end users, systems integrators and product suppliers to meet and share and exchange information and feedback. It presents a unique opportunity for the Biometrics Institute Supplier Members to showcase their applications, services and products to a special forum of government end-users.

Key Highlights of the Program:
