This conference, was attended by over 60 delegates from 18 different countries. Presentations and workshops were presented by expert speakers from across the world, in particular Europe and the US, covering a wide range of issues relating to campus cards and the future of mobile of technology.

The conclusions and incidences of the conference can be found at 
The success of the conference, which was clearly visible to all who attended the conference, certainly proved a motivating factor for the use of campus cards and its role in the delivery of an efficient and quality service for colleges and universities. It really demonstrated to all what a campus card system is capable of providing and delivering now and in the future. It was also obvious to all that there are challenges ahead but as an association we can help and learn from each other. This is one of the main aims of ECCA.

The European Campus Card Association continues to become a stronger association each year and this was particularly evident at this year’s conference. Next year’s conference will be hosted by Wroclaw University of Technology in Poland.
