Chris Stevens, Technical Security Director at SIDOS UK who will be speaking at the conference about emerging threats to transport infrastructures, commented:
“I have attended every Transport Security Expo that has ever been run in the UK, and I’ve always found that it focuses on the audience’s needs, and on the specific areas that are critical to a country’s wellbeing – transport being one of these. I have presented at the Transport Security Expo for the past four years … Transport Security Expo is a truly global conference, one that deals with very real issues, and I am delighted to be a part of it once again for 2015.”
Robert Missen, Head of Unit: Land and Maritime Security, Directorate-General for Mobility & Transport, European Commission added:
“… for me, Transport Security Expo is the most important UK event to attend: not just because of the UK’s eminence in the field of transport security, but because of the conference’s excellent international focus.”
There will be two conference theatres located in the heart of the main exhibition area and all of the sessions will be CPD-accredited, courtesy of the Security Institute. There will also be a dedicated Presentation Theatre forming part of the Expo’s Future Borders Experience and offering a rolling programme of half-hour presentations delivered by leading experts in the field.
In addition, the Security Innovation Seminars theatre, also free-to-attend, will host a full two-day programme of presentations and live demonstrations from a wide range of the event’s exhibitors who will be revealing some of the very latest technologies in numerous areas including: airport check point, perimeter security, large area monitoring, digital railways, surveillance solutions, biometrics, supply chain security and integrity, maritime security and text analytics.
A number of Transport Security Expo partners will also be running their own seminars and workshops across the two days of Transec, including a Kidnap and Ransom workshop delivered by NYA International, the world-leading global risk and crisis management consultancy.
Peter Jones, CEO of Nineteen Events, organisers of Transport Security Expo, commented:
“We are very excited about the variety and the outstanding quality of the conference and seminar programme we have put together this year. The fact that all of this leading edge content will be free-to-attend for all delegates will undoubtedly make Transport Security Expo a must-attend event for anyone involved in any area of transport security.”
