About Eagle Eye Expositions
Every day, 24/7, law enforcement, customs and immigration professionals, throughout the world, are tasked with protecting their borders. Eagle Eye Expositions understands the enormous burden these brave men and women who serve local, state, federal and international law enforcement agencies undertake. To help support these professionals, we visit with them in the field, and meet with agency leadership. We continuously connect with policy makers and advisors to fully understand the challenges, needs, and mission in a post 9-11 world.
We engage teams of experts -- former law enforcement and government officials, as well as industry veterans, who selflessly volunteer on our advisory boards and direct our conference agendas. We aggregate information, intelligence, knowledge, and then expertly create superior, relevant and timely conferences that attract thousands of law enforcement professionals. Our expositions bring together hundreds of companies from all over the world that exhibit the latest products, technologies and solutions to help our attendees advance their mission. We employ highly skilled and service oriented conference and tradeshow professionals, with years of experience, to assure we deliver exceptional value and superior service to all our customers.
As hard-driving, dedicated and passionate conference and trade show professionals, we never stop working to improve our educational programs and create forums that provide enormous value to our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors. Like our customers – the companies that provide the products, tools, technologies and solutions to law enforcement professionals throughout the world, we are focused on our mission.
We’re committed to excellence, just like the courageous men and women who protect our nation, and nations throughout the world. When you attend an Eagle Eye Expositions conference, you will hear from thought-leaders and senior government officials from all over the globe -- the best and brightest speakers -- and you will see the largest selection of state-of-the-art products, technologies and solutions at our exhibitions.
When you exhibit at an Eagle Eye Expositions event, you will meet highly qualified attendees who are searching for your products, technologies, services and solutions – people who influence the buying decision, and who have the authority to make buying decisions. And you will experience a level of professionalism second to none.
Our mission is to support your mission – and at Eagle Eye Expositions, we take that responsibility very seriously.
