Meet the industry’s leading experts in International Port Security

The 5th annual International Port Security conference takes place on the 4th and 5th June 2014 in London, UK.

The Maritime Security Market report forecasts the global maritime security market to grow from $12.55 billion in 2013 to $19.48 billion in 2018, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.2% from 2013 to 2018.* The report states port security is imperative due to the increasing number of maritime threats, which may disrupt the international trade and also cause political unrest.

With 2014 showing no sign of slowing up in terms of investment in the sector, it is imperative that stakeholders understand the importance of the challenges faced in ports from: theft of cargo, illegal immigration, drug smuggling and corruption of high level port staff.

The highly anticipated International Port Security conference returns to London for the 5th annual event in two weeks’ time. The two day conference will deliver case studies from over 12 ports around the globe, briefing sessions from government bodies and leading security technology providers to ensure delegates are up-to-date with high priority information that enables you to best secure your seaports, economies and means of trade.

Take the opportunity to network with key nations including UK, Sweden, Brazil, Germany, USA, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Belgium and many more to compare the best practice of global leaders against their own mitigation of threat.
