IBMATA are pleased to announce that our inaugural international conference will take place in Zagreb, Croatia from 16-17 May 2018.
With a complex border comprised of a long coastline and a land border shared with both EU and non-EU states, Croatia illustrates some of the challenges facing border management today.
As well as in-depth presentations from the Croatian government, delegates will also hear presentations from other Balkan states discussing topics including cross-border smuggling and trafficking, managing migration through the region, and regional cooperation on border security matters.
There will also be representation from western European nations providing an update on current security challenges faced at their borders and transportation hubs.
With around 150 participants from across EMEA and North America, the event also provides vendors with the perfect opportunity to showcase the latest technologies to an international audience.
The event will be chaired by the IBMATA Chairman, Mr Tony Smith, the former Director-General of UK Border Force.
