Since 2004, the ID People Award Ceremonies hosted by On Publishing have been a unique occasion for the members of an influential community of decision makers to gather from around the world and celebrate the movers and shakers of the ID Revolution. The awards are regarded as the world’s most prestigious independent recognition of the contribution made by the thought leaders, innovators and pioneering adopters that drive the development and deployment of advanced identification technology and programs.

By tradition, the winners of the awards presented in former years participate in the ID People Award ceremonies to present the tributes to the winners of the year.

The ID People Awards were created by the editorial team of the magazine ID People, one of the ID Community publications and official publication of ID WORLD Events. They are presented each year to the drivers of the ID Revolution who have distinguished themselves for commitment, leadership, creativity and innovation. They recognize the outstanding work of those who play a prime role in today’s global effort to address the challenges and opportunities related to automatic identification.
