Border Security Expo Honored with Three Trade Show Executive (TSE) Fastest 50 Awards


One of the security industry's premier events—Border Security Expo—has garnered three Trade Show Executive (TSE) awards for 2022. The event received the prestigious Fastest 50 Award for a 43 percent increase in total attendance, and a Next 50 Award for substantial increase in number of exhibiting companies and net square feet on the trade show floor. 


"The Border Security Expo Advisory Board and our key stakeholders have always recognized that this event is the best destination for government leaders, operational field commanders, local and federal law enforcement, and private industry to meet and address the most pressing border security issues," said Lee Arevian, Event Director. "As border challenges remain top of mind for many, we have been able to bring in a wider array of voices, from local and state law enforcement to new technologies and concepts that have led to the natural growth of the show. We are thrilled to have Trade Show Executive and the industry-at-large recognize and honor this critical event."


Border Security Expo 2023 will take place May 10-11, at the El Paso Convention Center in El Paso, Texas., and is already on pace for more growth. Registration is tracking 68% ahead of 2022 and the exhibit hall is 10% ahead of last year’s pace. For more information, please visit


Trade Show Executive (TSE) Fastest 50 rankings are determined from information supplied and certified by senior executives with the association or private show organizer responsible for the event. All trade shows with a minimum of 15,000 net square feet held in the U.S. in 2022 were eligible. For more information about the program, please visit
