The International Card Manufacturers Association (ICMA) serves the dynamic card industry and the various companies and organizations involved in manufacturing and personalizing these cards. Billions of cards now fill pockets and purses throughout the world. As the complexity of card manufacturing and applications has increased, so have the production, standards, quality, security and environmental issues surrounding the cards. The need to bring together these diverse elements of the card industry led to the formation of the ICMA.

The International Card Manufacturers Association is a global non-profit association of 200+ card manufacturers, personalizers, suppliers and other industry participants which promotes the card industry and the value of its products and services. Because Associated Pacific Machine has dedicated the latter years of operations to becoming frontrunners in the plastic card manufacturing arena, promoting the company through ICMA’s networking channels has created a natural progression of exposure within the card manufacturing industry. ICMA hosts the annual Card Manufacturing EXPO, a leading global conference and trade show dedicated to plastic card production which allows Associated Pacific Machine to showcase its latest and greatest technology to benefit other ICMA members and suppliers alike. ICMA’s Speed Networking sessions provides exhibitors and card manufacturers with a structured approach to meeting industry companies they may not normally have an opportunity to meet.
