In a press release, the ISC stated that Appiphany Technologies, an “IP risk control company”, will be a “select exhibitor” at the 16th annual Fraud and Counterfeit in the Imaging Supplies Industry Conference, taking place in San Diego from 18 to 20 September.
The company provides companies “with total, integrated brand protection solutions to prevent revenue loss from counterfeiting, product diversion and grey market activities”, with the ISC a “non-profit trade association” comprised of OEMs that aims to “protect their customers by combating illegal activities in the imaging supplies industry”.
Members include Brother, Canon, Epson, HP Inc, Lexmark, Samsung and Xerox, and the ISC noted that it estimates about $3.5 billion (€3.1 billion) is “lost to counterfeit products worldwide in the imaging supplies industry, since there is a ready supply of empty cartridges as well as components and known processes making ‘entry’ relatively easy for the counterfeiters”. Last year, the ISC celebrated 20 years in operation at the 15th conference.
Rob Sargent, CEO of Appiphany, stated: “Before being invited as an exhibitor to this prestigious industry event, ISC Chairman Allen Westerfield assisted us in presenting a webinar for interested ISC members. We are pleased to be a part of this conference and excited about meeting face-to-face, so many members that we have only conversed with by phone or webinar. This is the kick-off to our conference exhibit/sponsorship and guest speaking tour for 2016/17.”
