The Border Security Expo Demo Day 2018 is designed for manufacturers, distributors, retailers and others to demonstrate and network with end-users at an outdoor range. Space is available to showcase technology as well as access to a live fire range for demonstrations. Demo Day is a great time to gather information from the end users to assist in product development, testing and general feedback. And for the law enforcement personnel in the field every day, it’s a great opportunity to test-drive these products and make your opinion count.
Also taking place at Demo Day is the third Annual Border Patrol Foundation Top Shooter Competition. Set up in the IDPA format, the competition will consist of real-life scenarios border agents and officers face in the field (more details below, under COMPETE). This competition will test the skills of the most experienced law enforcement personnel and bragging rights are at stake for you sector, station, unit or department!
Admission to Demo Day is free for all Border Security Expo exhibitors and attendees.
