AIRPORT SECURITY

Tuesday | 25th May 2021

Conference Room 2

Aviation has always been at the forefront of testing and adopting the latest security innovations to protect itself from a number of threats, on the ground and in the air.

 

As security threats have evolved over the last century so have the sophisticated threat detection and mitigation capabilities of airport security agencies. Collaboration between multiple entities, including airports, airlines, immigration, customs and now even health authorities, is at the heart of this.

At Airport Security Middle East you will hear security experts discuss the future of airport security, why digital must now complement existing physical elements, what role can unmanned technologies play and how developments in biometrics and AI will facilitate a safer, more efficient and contactless passenger experience.

Register online to get a chance to be invited to the in-person sessions from 24-26 May at the DWTC in Dubai.
