The Future of Border Management 

As the international gathering of border security policy makers, experts and stakeholders, Smarter Border Managment 2017 will consider the operational and practical relationship between maintaining the flow of people and cargo around the world, whilst prioritising safety against terrorism, trafficking and smuggling. 

The challenge of unprecedented demographic trends, irregular migration patterns and the complexity of the geopolitical context in 2017 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.
