    Conference Focus

    Rapid advancements in all aspects of security printing and security features plus the international focus on all aspects of security in today's world have created a rapidly growing demand for physical, document and identification security. Advancements in digital printing and technololgies for incorporating security features, while spawning new modalities and efficiencies for security printing, have also enabled counterfeiters as well as legitimate issuers. From brand protection and secure access to ID's, tickets, travel documents, etc. - physical and digitally printed security images, features and data are converging in ways never before imagined. This convergence of once separate technologies is creating both challenges and market opportunities for effective integration of digital printing with physical security devices in a wide range of market specific applications.

    IMI's 4th Annual Security Printing Conference will address the challenges and opportunities in dealing with security issues and enabling brand protection for products and production of secure documents for a wide variety of applications including business documents, ID's, currency, gaming/event tickets, travel documents, etc. Industry experts will address digital printing technologies' capabilities and shortcomings relative to printing secure output and the technology options available to enhance the production of secure documents and devices of all types. The conference program will provide a critical assessment of forensic analysis requirements, enhanced ink and media systems, document traceability technologies, software solutions and other potential avenues to enhance product and document security.

    This unique conference is designed to educate and inform industry leaders and technologists at all levels in the supply chain of security printing of the difficulties and business opportunities for combining digital and physical security printing on an application specific basis. If your business or products' future is dependent on finding effective ways to utilize physical features and digital security printing, or finding cost effective methods to stay ahead of counterfeiting, tampering and forgery, you will benefit from attending this conference.

    Don't miss this opportunity for digital printing technologists, security agency personnel, security organizations, hardware vendors, consumables suppliers, converters, component/software suppliers and end users to communicate and address the urgent issue of product and document security.
