Border Security Conference

  • Further Strengthening Your Borders
  • 17 February, 2016 - 18 February, 2016, Rome, Italy

We are proud to announce the return of the highly successful Border Security conference, now in it's 9th year, which will take place in Rome on 17th – 18th February 2016 in Rome, Italy. The value of this event is recognized by the Italian Navy who will be sending a delegation to attend and provide a senior speaker to speak about the current operations in relation to the migrant crisis.

The continuing instability in Libya means the tragic circumstances in the Mediterranean are still recurrent and the effects are being felt across Central and Western Europe all the way to the France-UK Border of Calais and Scandinavia. The 2016 event will devote a day to discussing the potential resolutions and difficulties of the current migrant crisis and sessions will be delivered by the key organisations, who will also be participating in interactive panel discussions.


The event will also focus on other aspects of border security, such as the smuggling of drugs and illegal goods at the border as well as counter terrorism. Sessions will focus on how this can be reduced, whether it be modern technologies, greater collaboration or a larger security presence at the border.
