Why Attend?

Expert Insights. Innovative Solutions.

Border Security Expo offers the insights, solutions, and connections that help federal, state, local, and international border and law enforcement agencies make critical decisions needed to protect our borders from national and transnational threats.


The conference program provides expert-led panels and keynotes, designed to offer insights, best practices, and actionable takeaways to proactively anticipate and mitigate threats. Covering everything from migration and opioids to organized crime and law enforcement transparency, attendees are able to bring proven solutions back to their agencies and organizations—leading to more efficient and effective border security operations.

Plus, the exhibit hall provides an unparalleled opportunity to get up-close and hands-on with the latest security products and services—everything from access control and armored vehicles to biometrics and retinal scanning technologies from 125+ exhibitors. It's a valuable opportunity to demo products, talk to experts, and form strategic partnerships.

We are also proud to honor the brave men and women of our law enforcement communities with awards ceremonies and memorial events. Held in collaboration with the Border Patrol Foundation, these events provide a once-a-year opportunity to celebrate your peers and colleagues and honor those who have sacrificed everything to protect our borders.
