From 16th-17th November 2017, The Holography Conference will be taking place at The Catalonia Barcelona Plaza Hotel in Barcelona, Spain. Dominating the holography conference scene since 1990, this annual event continues to be regarded as the most enriching meeting of minds for users, producers, artists, strategist and providers within the industry. 

From international government and business representatives to scientist and academic minds, this cash event promises ample opportunity to calibrate (or re-calibrate) your views on the current holography landscape. Over just two days, attendees will learn about cutting-edge uses of holograms on banknotes, passports and identity documents as well as brand authentication, packaging, production and printing techniques from the experts themselves.

The event will also host the Annual General Meeting of the International Hologram Manufacturers Association (IHMA) over dinner on the first night (7pm-10pm); During which, the prestigious 2017 IHMA Excellence in Holography Awards will be presented to a well-deserving few for the following five categories:
