The Future of Border Management
It is the responsibility of the international border community to continually enhance security processes without compromising passenger experience and airport capacity. Through a detailed examination of cutting edge technology and infrastructure solutions, Smarter Border Management 2018 will provide an interactive forum for collaborative discussion, and a detailed consideration of best practice and organisational capabilities.
The challenge of unprecedented demographic trends, irregular migration patterns and the complexity of the geopolitical context in 2018 aligned with extensive technological developments in the implementations of "smart" border systems delivers an exciting and challenging background to the established forum for border security professionals from government, NGOs and the private sector.
This year's conference will build upon the success of our 2017 event, which brought together 160 leaders in border security, policy makers, experts and stakeholders. Join us in November and hear keynote presentations from Rt. Hon Caroline Nokes, United Kingdom Secretary of State for Immigration and Krum Garkov, Executive Director, eu-LISA.
