World Border Security CongressWorld Border Security Congress

20-22 March 2018, Marriot Madrid Auditorium. Madrid, Spain


The World Border Security Congress is the only multi-jurisdictional transnational platform where the border protection, management and security industry policy-makers and practitioners convene annually to discuss the international challenges faced in protecting not only one’s own country’s borders, but those of neighbours and friends.

World Border Security Congress will provide a platform for the world’s border protection forces and agencies to discuss and debate the current and future issues and challenges facing the border management, security and migration management sectors.

Controlling and managing international borders in the 21st Century continues to challenge the border control and immigration agencies around the world. It is generally agreed that in a globalised world borders should be as open as possible, but threats continue to remain in ever evolving circumstances and situations.

Advancements in technology are assisting in the battle to maintain safe and secure international travel. The border security professional still remains the front line against these threats. World Border Security Congress is a high level, 3 day event providing you with the opportunity to reach the senior decision makers in the border protection and management industry.

We look forward to welcoming you to World Border Security Congress on 20th-22nd March 2018 in Madrid, Spain.
