Maritime Security 2014 West is the second installment of the Maritime Security West program series, building upon the successes of last year’s inaugural conference in Long Beach, CA. As the ninth maritime security conference hosted by Homeland Security Outlook since 2011, Maritime Security 2014 West furthers a commitment to address the needs of governments, law enforcement, and critical infrastructure to counter the challenges of securing coastlines, inland waterways, and their critical infrastructure.
Maritime Security 2014 West provides discussion and collaboration on strategies and technologies to counter maritime security threats encountered by governments, law enforcement, and port/terminal owners and operators. Interactive workshop sessions are designed to give all conference participants the actionable knowledge on how to better secure their maritime areas of responsibility, mainly by stressing the importance of collaboration, efficiency, and best practices. Each of the conference workshop topics will be addressed by relevant perspectives of those who have implemented successful strategies and technologies in their maritime security operations.
In addition to the educational and interactive workshops, Maritime Security 2014 West will also showcase future technologies and programs that will augment efficiency and effectiveness to achieve maritime security. The program will also host an exhibition of 40 companies that have highly relevant solutions and past performances in securing the maritime domain. Exhibitors will display relevant solutions to conference participants, ensuring that all participants remain informed of the latest in trends and technologies.
Maritime Security 2014 West exhibitors will not only be able to showcase their solutions, but they will also be included in the conference sessions, networking lunches/breaks/breakfast and happy hour. We find that the most important part of the program are the relationships that are built to help everyone involved find solutions, collaborate and share information. Maritime Security 2014 West is a great opportunities to spend three days with highly qualified prospects that are incredibly hard to get in front of in any other setting.
