HID Global will demonstrate its mobile access solutions from February 25-28 in the NFC Center at ASSA ABLOY’s Pod #1 during Mobile World Congress held at Fira Gran Via. The NFC Center is located in the heart of Congress Square and will showcase NFC-enabled handsets and their capabilities as well as information on the NFC ecosystem.
