Business Beyond Borders continues its tour around Europe and beyond to help SMEs and Clusters find new international partners. The latest event took place in Cannes, France, at the world-renowned Palais de Festivals. All the glamour of the cinema that characterises the city was, however, momentarily forgotten due to the technological developments for cybersecurity and digital payments that were the focus of TRUSTECH.
TRUSTECH Cannes is one of the leading fairs in Europe for digital identification and electronic payments. This year, the fair hosted over 300 exhibitors, 200 international keynote speakers, and up to 323 matchmaking meetings through Business Beyond Borders.

Besides BBB, TRUSTECH featured insightful presentations from high-level companies like Samsung, PayPal, BNP Paribas and Google.

As for BBB’s one-to-one meetings, participants were enthusiastic and clearly demonstrated their willingness to find new business partners. One of them, Josean Ayzeber, Director-General of the Brazilian RFID-based card company CARDNET, has expressed her satisfaction with the BBB matchmaking sessions: “I am very happy with the results of the meetings I’ve had. I’ve received many requests from many companies who are interested in selling their products in Brazil and importing ours. I highly recommend Business Beyond Borders, it is an excellent initiative”.

SMEs depend on the right kind of partnerships and the only way to achieve them is to meet potential business partners in the kind of meetings ‘Business Beyond Borders’ provides”.
