Event Overview:

Border Security Expo 2017 - Developing counter-terrorism strategy

Now in its 11th year, Border Security Expo is the only major conference and expo fully addressing border security and has become the go-to destination for federal, state, and local government leaders and law enforcement personnel. Border Security Expo 2017 will take place in San Antonio, Texas (April 11th -13th, at the Henry Gonzalez Convention Center).

Why 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:

  • Find out what’s new in border security
  • Learn from global leaders at the acclaimed two-day conference
  • Network with peers and colleagues from the US and abroad
  • See, test, and compare the latest equipment, technology, and services
  • Visit the largest exhibition of its kind anywhere in the world from 125+ exhibiting companies
  • Attend awards ceremonies, memorial services, and networking receptions
  • Demo Day at an outdoor venue on April 13 for testing equipment in the field
