ASIS International heralds year-on-year growth of flagship educational event in Europe

ASIS International, the dedicated association for practising security professionals, is “excited” by the growth of the organisation’s flagship event in Europe. With two weeks to go before ASIS Europe 2019: From Risk to Resilience opens its doors in Rotterdam on 27-29 March, conference registrations are already ahead of last year’s total, while the exhibition space is almost sold out.

ASIS Europe 2019 – for which Risk Xtra is an Official Media Partner – will feature over 40 exhibiting companies. The technology and solutions offered on the show floor and the education in the Innovation Track will help attendees to address today’s complex risk landscape.

Innovations set to be highlighted range from the latest drone and counter-UAV systems, integrated access control and surveillance technology through to smart crowd-sourced cyber security testing, crisis, risk management and intelligence platforms and mass communications applications.

Knowledge-driven solutions are also strongly represented, from geopolitical intelligence and risk analysis to executive protection as well as workforce training platforms. In addition, a strong focus will be on solutions that enable practitioners to take data-driven decisions that will help save money and allocate resources more efficiently and effectively, and in some cases may even contribute towards the core business of their organisations.

Innovation Track

All participants at ASIS Europe have access to the Innovation Track. This carefully curated track offers educational content from some of the exhibiting companies. The track seeks to connect the unique insights, benchmarking abilities, innovative approaches and emerging technological developments from technology and service providers with security practitioners.

Topics include technical espionage Case Studies, applications for Artificial Intelligence and automation, smart buildings, the General Data Protection Regulation, crisis and critical events management and much more.

Delegates and visitors will span Chief Security Officers and security leaders at some of the world’s largest companies, regional experts and specialist advisors, in addition to newcomers to the security profession.

Facing the toughest challenges

Conference chairman Eduard Emde CPP stated: “ASIS Europe will explore how our cities are evolving, critical and emerging risks, technology as a friend and foe and much more. With over 50 educational sessions and 11 hours of dedicated networking time, don’t miss this opportunity to learn from and exchange experiences with security professionals who are creating and managing security teams and systems to face the toughest challenges.”

A Free Show Pass offers the exhibit, multiple networking functions, plus the education in the Innovation Track and Career Centre. A Professional Pass provides great learning at a budget price, while the Leadership Pass affords the choice of up to 50 educational sessions (including scenario-based training exercises).
