Speakers & Delegates

The Speakers

All 5th IBDC Conference Speakers are considered to be experts in their specific field and their presentation will be approved by the IBDA committee before being included in the final conference agenda. The Speakers will have actively participated in the WBP and will explain the concept, context and objectives of their WBP design via a presentation and exhibition of their designs at the dedi- cated World Banknote Project Exhibition Area. More than 60 revolutionary banknote designs will be presented for the very first time at the 5th IBDC, providing inspiration, creative thinking and perspective for all participants.

The Delegates

Due to the highly specific and technical nature of banknote design, conference access will be limited to visitors who are directly involved in banknote design or decision-making on banknote design issues. The conference will be of particular interest to professionals active in the following domains:

  • Banknote design
    • Concept artists
    • Security Design artists (origination)
    • Intaglio Engravers
    • Pre-press professionals (depth/profile setting, proofing, plate – making)
    • Design Management
  • Banknote printing
    • Production Management
    • Production Management
  • Central Bank issuing and cash management
    • New Series Project teams
    • Upgrade Series Project Teams
    •  Issuing Department
    • Cash Management

Conference delegates should note that the conference is limited to 180 participants in order to optimise the flow of information within a controlled and confidential environment. For the same reason, there will be no associated exhibition or sponsorship of the event.

Based on previous IBDC events, we aim to attract delegates from approximately 70 countries, making the event a true multi-cultural meeting place for the exchange of ideas, experience and perspectives on the Banknote of the Future.

A dedicated team of conference organisers have been assembled to assist with the necessary travel, accommodation and any other logistical issues before and during the conference. These are:
