European Border Management & Technologies Summit conference and exhibition
24 - 25, April 2019, Istanbul



IBMATA are pleased to announce that our next European Border Management & Technologies Summit conference and exhibition will take place on the 24th – 25th April 2019 in Istanbul, Turkey.

Turkey provides a fascinating case study for international participants, due to Turkey’s geographical location the government has to deal with turbulent borders such as the borders with Iraq and Syria. The borders are very vast and there is a key importance in monitoring these large borders with the latest border surveillance systems. Turkey is the first destination for many displaced civilians from war-torn countries trying to reach the European Union and provides an interesting case study as to how the authorities in Turkey and neighbouring nations deal with the large number of migrants.

In October the new Istanbul Airport opened its doors and is now the main gateway into Europe for Asian airlines and passengers. It is believed that the new airport will be the busiest connecting flights airport in the world. The new airport is also equipped with the latest security and check in systems to enable easy passage for passengers connecting flights to mainland Europe.

To be part of the IBMATA Border Management & Technologies Summit please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
