About High Security Printing EMEA

The Regional Forum for Secure Document Technologies

The latest technologies and techniques in the production and issue of banknotes, ePassports, ID cards, visas and other secure documents across Europe, Middle-East and Africa.

The conference, which provides excellent networking opportunities alongside the programme and exhibition, is complemented by a number of social events, including a welcome cocktail reception and gala dinner.

Attendance at the EMEA events is generally in the region of 300-350, with attendees not just from the region, but all parts of the globe. This provides an excellent opportunity to meet senior level decision makers in one location and will be of interest to those companies already working in, or looking to expand into, European, Middle-East and African region.

Government organisations are provided an attractive fee structure whilst Europe, Middle-East and Africa delegates who live and work in the region are also eligible for reduced rates.

High Security Printing™ EMEA focuses on government-specified and issued documents, including currency, fiduciary documents, excise stamps, ID cards, e-passports, visas, vehicle documents and licences, with a particular emphasis on banknotes and the emerging technologies for ID and travel documents. As in previous events, speakers will be specialists in their field providing technical presentations, including some regional case studies. Running in tandem with the event will be a trade exhibition of approximately 30 exhibitors working in the currency, e-passport, smart card, authentication and related industries.

High Security Printing EMEA is one of a trio of regional events from Reconnaissance, with its two sister events – High Security Printing Latin America and High Security Printing Asia – also taking place annually, serving their respective regions.

Programme

Monday 13 June 2022

09:00 – 12:30 Identity – Digitizing Identity: Benefits and Risks Highlighted by the Current Regulatory Landscape

In this interactive workshop we will provide the context of international remote identity verification and will compare and contrast different global approaches and how they impact user experience, fraud detection and document design.

This session is designed to bring together specialists from different fields to brainstorm problems and present their proposed solutions. All of the attendees will focus on distinct problems and highlight their insights for the benefit of all the participants.

09:00 – 12:30 Sustainability – Reducing the Environmental Impact of Cash

Sustainability has become a high-profile topic for good reasons. This seminar will look at what producers of cash and coins and what cash management stakeholders can do to reduce the environmental impact of their operations and the cash cycle. The aim of these talks, given in a workshop format to allow discussion and exchanges of views and information, is to share best practice and to provide examples which others might want to consider doing. They will include what has been done, and with what results, and how the organisations approached making these changes.  A specialist sustainability consultancy will introduce the topic and layout thoughts on how to plan a sustainability programme.

New Solutions to Support the Circular Economy

While reducing the environmental impact of operations plays a critical role in sustainability, is there more that the high security printing industry can do to use novel applications of its technology to help develop the emerging circular economy?

As the name implies, a circular economy (CE) extends the traditional notions of operations management to include production, consumption, reuse and waste management.

This part of the seminar will focus on the beginning and end of the CE (if that’s possible for a circle) – ethical sourcing and waste management. Many of the issues faced in developing and sustaining the CE are bound into identifying where materials have come from and where goods, after their useful life, are going to. These topics are familiar to many companies involved in the security print and identity industries, but which provide new opportunities for their solutions beyond the conventional applications for brand protection, track and trace and authentication.

Wherever you are on your journey to sustainability, this seminar aims to give food for thought about new opportunities to do things differently.

13:30 – 17:00 Currency – Going Inside Counterfeiting Print Shops

What would you expect to find inside a counterfeiting print shop? Using open source intelligence, this interactive seminar will develop your understanding of the equipment and materials used in counterfeiting operations and train you to identify them in media reports. It will be demonstrated that this approach can be useful for counterfeit analysis without having access to the counterfeits. This seminar will be of interest to delegates who have responsibility for examining and processing counterfeits or developing security features.

Welcome and intro presentation – David Tidmarsh
HP Indigo – Gidi Amir
Komori – Phil Holland  
Jura – Barna Barabas
Luminescence Sun Chemical Security – Gerben van Wijk

This panel will provide an introduction to high-end digital print equipment and its use for security documents. It will offer information, guidance and a contextual overview on the digital security print, as well as practical insights in to setting up and using the systems. The session will be invaluable to all involved in security document issuance design and printing.

Dgital printing technologies are finding an ever-increasing role in the production of secure documents, particularly in areas that require low setup costs and the individualisation of documents with unique or sequential features. This is seeing the development of digitally-specific security print design features. What are they and how do you incorporate them in to your security document?

Before adopting digital printing for your secured documents you need to consider its characteristics, the consumables available for digital printing and the supporting design and pre-press software available – as well as how you might integrate with traditional analogue printing. You also need to consider the easy availability of digital printers and how its output compares against the output of the specialist equipment being developed for security printing.

This panel will examine the characteristics of these specialist digital printers for secured documents, with information on security inks for digital printing, feature design software, printing hardware and real-life applications. It will also take a big-picture look at the opportunities and threats arising from these printer developments.

The session will feature presentations from equipment, software and ink suppliers as well as a company already offering digitally printed documents, to ensure that you get clear, detailed and practical information on the possibilities and options of using high-end digital systems for security documents.
