10th annual Border Security Conference

Event Information

The 2017 conference will possibly be the most relevant and topical event to date as we enter our 10th successive year. With the rise of cross border terrorism, the current migrant crisis growing in the Mediterranean and across Europe, Brexit raising questions over the security of the UK’s border and the uncertainty involved with heightened security around the US Border, this will guarantee to be an event not to be missed as we respond to extremely topical issues.

Following on from the success of our 2016 meeting, SMi’s annual Border Security conference will bring together senior military personnel and industry experts who will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.
