Border Security Expo brings border security leadership from the U.S. and around the world together to provide an educational experience designed to help advance your agency’s mission. The conference is developed by former border security officials who understand the educational needs of today’s border security professionals. View the Advisory Board. The Expo consists of over 150 displaying the latest equipment, technology and services aimed at increasing security while facilitating legitimate trade and travel.

This two-day event, focused on Countering Transnational Organized Crime: An Important Component of Counter-Terrorism Strategy, takes place in San Antonio, TX near one of the busiest sectors along United States and Mexico border, the Rio Grande Valley. We have arranged for several hotels to provide government per diem rates, and the conference registration fee for government attendees is just $98, including two days of educational meetings, vitally important networking events, luncheons, the Salute to Fallen Heroes Memorial Ceremony, and the Exhibition Hall featuring over 150 companies.

It is mission critical for staff to keep up to date on the latest techniques, tools and technologies available to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently, and to gain this information in a cost-effective manner. We are committed to providing quality education, and a highly productive experience, leading to actionable steps government attendees can implement once they return to their jobs.
