Aug. 17, 2011 - PRLog -- “Conference presenters from leading organizations and companies will provide the latest information on many new developments, applications and market opportunities,” says IMI President Al Keene.  “Presentations from Advanced ID Detection, Austrian State Printing House, Buena Vista Resources, Forensic Document Examinations, Heidelberg, Imaging Supplies Coalition, InData Systems, InkSure, Lexmark, Luminescence, Nipson, Oce, Opalux, Performance Indicator, Reconnaissance International, Regula Forensics, Schofield Imaging Associates, Sekuworks and U.S. Secret Service will provide key insights into effective ways to utilize numerous security features and digital security printing to find cost effective methods to stay ahead of counterfeiting, tampering and forgery,” says Keene.

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’ capabilities and shortcomings relative to printing secure output and the technology options available to enhance the production of secure documents and products 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.”

The complete conference agenda, downloadable brochure and on-line registration are now available on IMI’s web site

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.  Contact Al Keene at IMI for additional information regarding these opportunities.
