Event Profile

  • Border Security Expo 2018

    The southwestern border security community is the Nation‘s first line of defense against transnational criminals. By assembling the numerous agencies and private-industry involved in fulfilling the border security mission, Border Security Expo, now in its 12th year, serves as a concrete extension to the various federal, state & local organizations working hand in hand for more effective and efficient inter-agency communication and deployment of assets, personnel and resources.

  • Who should attend:

    Criminal activities are as technologically sophisticated as they are diverse, requiring law enforcement to continually renew their expertise, equipment, education and training. As the border also serves as a port of entry for legal goods, services and people, they need to be moved as quickly and efficiently as possible while maintaining strict levels of security. Border Security Expo, the largest of its kind anywhere in the world, is the annual stage for local, city, state and federal law enforcement, and those affiliated with border security to:

    • Hear from Global leaders what’s new in border security policy, tactics and tools
    • Meet face-to-face with 125+ companies displaying the latest equipment, technology and services aimed at increasing security while facilitating legitimate trade and travel
    • Exchange ideas, information and experience with peers and industry colleagues from the U.S. and abroad

    Border Security Expo puts you on the inside track to the latest policies, technology and services available, so you can achieve your mission.

  • About the Conference:

    Border Security Expo presents timely information and underscores the importance of inter-agency cooperation from local, state and federal law enforcement – both of which keep your personnel at the forefront of new capabilities and technologies to combat sophisticated and adaptive criminal enterprises.
