Review Seminars

The Currency Research Team recaps the latest issues and trends presented at various international Conferences and Seminars at their two day (1/2 day each) Review Seminars. This is a chance for industry colleagues who have been unable to attend and participate in the international conferences to gain the insight and knowledge that was shared.

Presentations from conferences such as the Currency Conference, the Banknote Conference, the Cash Cycle Seminars (ICCOS) from all regions - Americas, Asia, Europe, Middle East & Asia, the Coin Conference and others are compiled into the key elements and trends. There are multiple review seminars a year in varying locations around the world, bringing the benefit of global education within easy reach.

The importance of researching and communicating industry knowledge throughout the industry is the central aim of the CR Surveys. Covering a multitude of essential topics (ranging from counterfeits to the future of cash) and compiled into presentations, offered at various conferences and seminars, these surveys provide a key function of communicating industry standards, best practices and industry opinion to key positions within the currency industry.


Training Seminars

Currency Research has worked with local partners to create training seminars in specific locations to bring an international agenda and international presenters to a local audience. It is important to share the knowledge and experience that has been gained at a global level to regional and country specific audiences so they can use it within their organizations to better efficiencies and practices in our industry.
