Tuesday - Wednesday, 25-26 April 2017 | Frankfurt Main, Germany

Programme released and registration is open.

SITE VISIT to Frankfurt Airport

A site visit to Frankfurt Airport will take place on Wednesday 26 April. A separate registration for the site visit is required. RSVP is essential as seats are limited. Preference is given to Biometrics Institute border agency members and aviation user members, who are registered to attend the conference. A waiting list is available for others.

CONFERENCE

This annual event in Europe continues to bring together the critical players in the borders community. We focus our programme on the user perspective and invite key decision makers to provide updates to the industry on border management, travel facilitation and security, migration management and more.

What border strategies are needed to manage the incoming waves of migrants? How can countries and sectors collaborate together through sharing information in advance? How can border agencies manage the floods of refugees ad hoc and in an often challenging environment? How reliable are the documents that are being presented? How can biometrics help with these new challenges?
