WCO IT/TI Conference & Exhibition
12-14 June 2019
The World Customs Organization (WCO) has dedicated 2019 to transforming frontiers into SMART borders to achieve seamless trade, travel and transport, with the acronym “SMART” signifying a commitment to these guiding principles: Secure, Measurable, Automated, Risk Management-based, and Technology-driven.
In keeping with that theme, WCO has merged two major events: WCO’s Information Technology (IT) Conference & Exhibition has been combined with the Technology & Innovation (TI) Forum and is now the WCO IT/TI Conference and Exhibition, this year being held in Azerbaijan. The conference will explore the role that Customs and border agencies will play in utilizing technological solutions to support trade, travel and transport, ensuring that movements across borders are seamless and secure.
This focus directly aligns with the goals and mission of S2 Global and its sister security companies Rapiscan Systems | AS&E and S2 University, all part of the OSI Systems family of security companies and the corporate sponsor of the event. These companies are dedicated to assisting Customs agencies to ensure they are positioned to evolve into state-of-the-art screening and enforcement operations, accelerating secure trade by implementing advanced inspection technology and data integration solutions.
