This was a great discussion on the fast growing global market of security printing. Thanks to Kodak we had an opportunity to hear of traditional printers diversifying into a new industry segment. I work with companies in this arena and it is encouraging to see that those organizations who participate quickly appreciate this rapidly evolving segment.
Great job to What They Think in managing this session and delivering a very insightful discussion.
