Banknotes High Meeting __ Tuesday 22/10/2019

It is our privilege and great pleasure to welcome you all to Copenhagen on behalf of Intergraf’s Committee of Experts.

The 2019 Banknotes High Meeting has been specifically designed for banknote printers using intaglio, banknote issuing authorities, government authorities and law enforcement, to allow you to interact, discuss and reflect on the trends currently shaping the banknotes world, and on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

It will give the floor to inspirational experts who are pushing the boundaries of the banknote industry and driving innovation across the sector. Learn from them as they share new strategies, emerging technologies and best practices, and as they explain how they are tackling challenges similar to yours and advancing the world of banknotes.

We hope it helps you turn today’s discussions into successful, lasting partnerships.

Thank you for your support and participation.
