New Session Formats

Chatbox


Individuals attending industry conferences do not only want to listen to speeches and watch presentations, but rather want to get actively involved in the discussion with experts and industry peers. To answer this demand, the World Banknote Summit is pleased to introduce a new discussion format called “Chatbox”.


Chatboxes are designed to address a specific topic in small groups of up to 8 people. The Chatboxes last for 40 minutes and are moderated by an expert who is especially familiar with the topic. Following the introduction and sound exposure of the subject, the attendees are given the possibility to engage in a lively discussion with the expert and with other delegates participating in this particular Chatbox.


Several Chatboxes are run on multiple tracks, allowing attendees to choose their preferred topic from the variety of Chatboxes on offer.

 

The Printer’s Forum


Hands-on sessions with a practical approach have been a hallmark of the World Banknote Summit since its very beginning.


The latest addition to this portfolio is The Printer’s Forum. Created by printers for printers, it offers a framework in which security printers can exchange print-related information and experiences with each other in a dedicated environment. Chaired by seasoned experts from state printing works, it will cover a wide range of topics from new technologies in the printing works to lean management.


The Printer’s Forum will take place on Monday 24th February from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.


For more details on the expert moderators and the topics to be discussed, please refer to the agenda section.


Please note: Access to The Printer’s Forum is restricted to state printing works and partners of the World Banknote Summit operating security printing plants.

Immersion sessions

 

Immersion sessions are moderated sessions lasting 75 mins and addressing specific topics. They are designed for groups of about 30 – 40 people with the aim of fostering lively discussions and exchange between the panelists and the audience.


To ensure maximum flexibility of choice, several immersion sessions are hosted on multiple tracks, allowing delegates to choose their preferred topic of interest.

 

Social Programme

The World Banknote Summit is an excellent opportunity to revive and expand one’s contact network. Coffee and lunch breaks are useful networking opportunities, but time flies and they always seem to be too short to catch up with everybody.

 

In order to provide further networking opportunities, the organisers are delighted to invite all attendees to dinner on Monday 24 February and Tuesday 25 February. Further details will be made available in due course.

Date & Venue

The World Banknote Summit will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from 24 to 26 February 2020.
