Suprema Successfully Concludes ‘Suprema Global Partner Program 2017’


Suprema, a global pioneer in biometrics, successfully concluded the ‘Suprema Global Partner Program 2017’ (SGPP 2017) which took place from November 8 to 10 at JW Marriott Phuket, Thailand.

The SGPP is an annual event where Suprema and global partners gather together and share their business strategy, vision, and new technology information. The event has been held in major cities in Korea and in Istanbul, Turkey since its launch in 2010. Continuously gaining popularity year after year, the SGPP 2017 welcomed more than 90 partners from 50 countries, which is an all-time high attendance record.

The SGPP 2017, which began with a keynote speech from Mr. Jae Won Lee, CEO of Suprema HQ, consisted of various sessions addressing the change in technology and markets, and Suprema’s response with new technology, products, marketing and business strategies.

Mr. Lee noted that the SGPP is the driving force of the Suprema and her partners’ world class performance, and a corporate culture unique to Suprema. He further shared his vision that with CoreStation, an intelligent biometric access controller newly introduced at the SGPP 2017, Suprema would expand to the controller market, which is the biggest in the physical access control market. The objective is to become unrivaled not only in biometrics but also in controllers and provide the industry’s most advanced access control solutions.

Mr. Bong-seob Song, CEO of Suprema, confirmed his will to solidify Suprema’s second leap. He stated that Suprema would provide Bluetooth and NFC-based mobile access control solutions in order to keep up with the fast-changing market trend. His emphasis was also on consolidating partnerships by strengthening free marketing activities through partners, as well as by supporting the partners and customers through strategic overseas offices in America, Europe, and the Middle East. Founded in 2000, Suprema now has more than 1,000 customers in over 130 countries.
