The inaugural Global Aviation Security Symposium (AVSEC2017) organised by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in collaboration with Airports Council International (ACI) in Montréal is now just a month away.
The three-day symposium – taking place at ICAO’s headquarters in Montréal on September 12-14 – will serve as a platform to promote the work of ICAO, its Member States and stakeholders in the area of aviation security.
AVSEC2017 will bring together AVSEC professionals from around the globe to advance the cultivation of a new mind-set towards aviation security, one that embraces AVSEC as a culture beyond a set of standards.
It will also strategically enhance international cooperation and collaboration to address the threat posed by terrorists targeting civil aviation by reinforcing, strengthening and promoting the international framework of aviation security standards.
To complement the symposium, participants will have the opportunity to experience an interactive exhibition showcasing the latest State and industry AVSEC technology and process innovations, along with dynamic learning workshops that will stimulate panel discussions on current challenges facing aviation security.
The programme for AVSEC2017 is currently in development and will be available shortly. Please continue to check back for the latest updates on the symposium.
