BusinessOulu together with the Business Gateways Finland, is facilitating the local NFC Cluster’s attendance at this event in San Francisco, California on November 30 – December 1. Other Finnish companies attending are Hansaprint and Red Solution.

“Oulu is globally known for its remarkable NFC expertise and while the technology is finally taking off, there will be an exciting market for the numerous solutions created in Oulu”, states Janne Mustonen, BusinessOulu’s Key Account Director on ICT. Mass market solutions are about to be released and companies like Google, Apple, Visa and MasterCard are delivering their NFC services shortly. Also the Oulu based companies are targeting at international markets, for instance, WhileOnTheMove’s Mobile Cloud Services platform enables development and deployment of mobile NFC solutions all around the world.

This will actually be the fourth time Oulu is attending at WIMA, which has traditionally been held at Monaco.
Now there is a chance to take the US market by introducing new products, meeting with potential partners and exploring the market trends around NFC.
