IMI's 8th Security Printing Conference - Nov. 16-18, 2011 - Agenda Announced
Information Management Institute, Inc. announces the agenda for its 8th Annual Security Printing Conference on November 16-18, 2011 at the Hollywood Beach Marriott, Holly Beach (Fort Lauderdale), Florida, USA.
By: Information Management Institute
Conference Chairman Harold Schofield of Schofield Imaging Associates says, “At last year’s conference, I reported that the annual worldwide economic cost of fraud, counterfeiting and piracy exceeds $650 billion dollars or 5 to 7% of world trade. In the U.S. alone, it is estimated at $250 to $350 billion resulting in 250,000 lost jobs. Companies and agencies are actively pursuing new technology options and security solutions to reduce these losses and recover the lost jobs. With the annual security printing industry revenues estimated to be approaching $10 billion dollars, these increased efforts will continue to expand these revenues.”
Schofield continues, “IMI’s 8th 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’
The complete conference agenda, downloadable brochure and on-line registration are now available on IMI’s web site www.imiconf.com
Keene continues, “the challenges of today’s economy make it all the more important to prevent the economic losses associated with counterfeited products, documents, ID’s, etc. The ability to avoid losses, to identify fraudulent products/documents and to recover losses are all activities for which companies and agencies are willing to invest in to increase their sales, profits and ROI’s. Thus, all end users and security technology providers need to be identifying new solutions, establishing new contacts and pursuing options to improve their sales and profitability.”
Conference registrants can also participate in IMI’s unique Suppliers’ Forum session and give a 5-minute presentation covering their technology, products, services, requirements, etc. as well as having a complimentary display in the conference display area.
