Dec. 11, 2017 Share Source

From 5th-8th February 2018, the Middle East & Africa Cash Cycle Seminar (ICCOS) will be taking place at The St. Regis Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

Renown for being the world's premier global seminar for commercial cash management, distribution and circulation, this seminar is suited for experts on all things cash, particularly senior executives, managers and other key decision makers involved in the processing, authentication, logistics and regulation of large cash volumes for organizations.

Bringing cash minds and stakeholders together, this is the perfect opportunity to share perspectives, ideas, cost-saving technologies, strategies, best practices and case studies with fellow cash industry peers.

The Cash Cycle Seminar offers insights and strategies to help your organization: streamline processes; learn valuable solutions and best practices; network with cash industry peers and more.

The seminar will include an exhibition area for curious cash minds to explore the latest in the cash technology and services. Sponsors will also run 'focused breakout meetings' for a closer exploration of current industry solutions. The seminar's flawlessly organised agenda is jam-packed with optional tours of Oumolat Security Printing (part of Abu Dhabi's first banknote printing plant) and G+D Automated Cash Centre demonstrations.

During free time, delegates will likely want to make the most of the services offered inside the luxurious St Regis, but thanks to its convenient location on the Corniche beachfront, exploring couldn't be easier or more tempting. With February seeing the end of Abu Dhabi's cool winters, the temperature will hopefully be just right for hiring a bicycle and exploring the beachfront. If you can make the time, make sure you take in some green air at Mangrove National Par, only a 20-minute drive away! Lonely Planet's guide here.

“The experience was an eye opener in terms of current trends. I got an opportunity to meet and network with industry stakeholders. I was also able to have a peer review about industry trends in other countries.”
