Staged in the heart of the nation’s capital, the International Summit on Borders is an annual gathering of global leaders focused on the intersection of international trade and travel with homeland security and other transnational threats. High-level and influential delegates representing a diverse cross-section of political leaders, practitioners, and stakeholders will convene this June to address the most critical and pressing security challenges and migration management issues.
The International Summit on Borders is a must-attend event for those seeking the latest solutions for a wide range of pressing issues including human trafficking, terrorism and threat mitigation, customs and immigration procedures, and anti-smuggling protocols, just to name a few.
Registration will open in April.
