How we work

NFCW tracks and reports on the latest developments in contactless communications, from core enabling technologies like contactless cards, mobile wallets, NFC, RFID, QR, biometrics and UWB to contactless payments, credentials, ticketing, and beyond. 

  • Readers can easily keep up-to-date with the latest news by visiting our home page or signing up for our email newsletter service.
  • They can also register as a member of our Knowledge Centre to access a wealth of in-depth educational resources, including our Contactless World Congress online event series.
  • All our webinars, white papers, conference presentations, live events and more are available to members at no cost. Premium research and consulting services are also available for members who choose to upgrade to our Inner Circle membership tier.
  • Membership is free of charge. New members complete a short application form that includes their contact details and business information and permission to share their details with the sponsors of any information they choose to access.
  • Suppliers can then quickly and easily reach, influence and connect with potential new customers by sharing their thought leadership, customer case studies or technical expertise with our members, running a promotional campaign or joining us as the sponsor of an event or research study.
  • They can also leverage the expertise and connections of the NFCW team for off-site activities, ranging from one-off consulting assignments to year-round sales, marketing, PR and strategy support.
