I collaborated with a researcher to  undertake a study for an international conference. After the conference, the presentation is posted on the conference website. Another research got interested in the work and helped developed it into an article for a publication in a reputable journal. The power point presentation on the conference website indicated that the researcher are two. The full article for publication is now having three authors.. issues relating to plagiarism has been sorted out. Will there be any problem in the future if the article is finally published with these three authors and later on it is found that two out of these three authors presented a similar work at a conference? Will there be any implication for the authors in general and the third author (who contributed significantly in developing the article) in the future?

No-one seems to have replied to your question, for some reason. I can see no problem (or question of plagiarism) with the three of you developing a paper out of a conference presentation. However, you might consider mentioning somewhere in the paper that it gree out of a presentation by X and Y at such and such a conference. This would certainly cover you if you still have a qualms about submitting the manuscript.
