The WBS Webinar

The World Banknote Summit’s core objective is to provide high-value content. Whilst face-to-face contact with peers during the event is very important, our goal is to offer learning opportunities between summits as well.


The solution to this is the WBS Webinar series. In the WBS Webinar series, carefully selected topics will be discussed online with experts in the months preceding the next World Banknote Summit.


Benefit from the convenience of joining the WBS Webinar from your workplace with just a few clicks, access high-value content and engage in lively discussions.

 

 

Next WBS Webinar: Quality and productivity in the security printing plant

Uncompromising quality and highest productivity are the keys to success in a security printing plant. The smart combination of human skills, technology, organizational structures and processes is essential for achieving the desired outcome. But which are the levers that can be applied, which concepts work and how can success be measured? These are the questions which will be investigated during this WBS Webinar.


Sergio São João, Production Director of Valora S.A., is a production expert and has many years of experience as an industrial director in different industries. He will share with the audience the concepts that Valora S.A. has put in place together with details of how the company is tackling the challenges ahead.


Valora S.A. is the banknote printing works fully owned by Banco de Portugal.


This WBS Webinar is scheduled for 27 January 2021 at 15:00 CET.

Innovative 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 uses a discussion format called “Chatbox”.

 

Chatboxes are designed to address a specific topic in small groups of up to 10 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 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 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.

 

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 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 27 September and Tuesday 28 September. Further details will be made available in due course.

Date & Venue

The World Banknote Summit will take place in Antwerp, Belgium, from 27 to 29 September 2021.
