On supporting Label Expo 2014, Mr. Manoj Kochar, President, Authentication Solution Providers’ Association, said, “We have partnered with the Label Expo for the past several years under our earlier brand name of HoMAI, though we are exhibiting under the ASPA banner for the first time. In the past, we were only accepting membership from hologram manufacturers, but this year onwards, with the broader mandate passed by our governing body, we are also soliciting other authentication solution providers to join hands in our fight against counterfeiting and to comprehensively grow the authentication solutions industry. For over 16 years, our members have enjoyed an unparalleled reputation and credibility among buyers and other stakeholders worldwide for their adherence to best practices, quality standards, ethics and use of latest technologies to provide truly customised, cost-effective and consistently reliable solutions. We would love to discuss how ASPA can help more authentication solution providers and emerge as a strong voice to represent their collective interests.”
ASPA will be accepting requests for full and associate membership at its booth during all four days of the Expo. Visitors can also collect their complimentary copy of ASPA’s official quarterly journal, The Authentication Times, from the booth.
