Borders Beyond Brexit: The Future of Border Management in Europe

As the international gathering of border security experts and stakeholders, Smarter Borders 2016 will consider the operational and practical relationship between the UK & Europe alongside the huge shifts in European border protection strategy and programme implementation.

The challenge of unprecedented demographic trends, irregular migration patterns and the complexity of the geopolitical context in 2016 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.

Featuring policymakers from across the European continent and beyond, this year's conference will aim to advance discussions across a whole range of issues, ensuring that we solve the crises of today and plan for the challenges of tomorrow.

Attend this year's conference to:

Explore British and European insights on the impact of Brexit for border control and security
Engage with a wide cross-section of border security stakeholders from government, port-of-entry and carrier perspectives
Benefit from brand new discussion topics covering smart cargo management at the border, knowledge share between land/air/sea port-of-entry, Brexit and a focus day on coherent security and border control beyond the border
Contribute and be heard on the critical issues for border stakeholders in our most interactive agenda ever

Smarter Borders 2017 will also be hosting a closed-door invitation only roundtable, hosted by SITA and the Australian Government, on the morning of the conference Focus Day.
