Border Security Leadership Outlines a Vision For The Future
at 8th Annual Border Security Expo
8Th Annual Border Security Expo Keynote and Panel Speakers Discuss Challenges and Opportunities to Secure and Manage Border

Phoenix, AZ (April 1, 2014) – On March 18th and 19th, the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona, was host to the 8th Annual Border Security Expo, the largest and longest running border security conference and exhibition serving  federal, state, local, and international law enforcement. Attendees traveled from 38 states and 14 countries. Government attendees were employed by 72 different agencies, departments, and municipalities.

“Securing and managing the border is an enormous task requiring collaboration from federal, state, local and international law enforcement, as well as public-private partnership,” says Paul Mackler, President & CEO of Eagle Eye Expositions, the producers of the annual event. “This year’s event embodied that spirit, with 72 different agencies and departments in attendance, and featuring expert speakers from more than 12 different law enforcement agencies, as well as private-sector companies. The event also hosted the largest exhibition of products and technology focused on border security, anywhere.”

 Border Security Expo’s 2014 corporate sponsor was Raytheon, a major supporter of the event.  Other key sponsors included General Dynamics, Axis Communications, Unisys, Motorola Solutions, Telephonics, and Harris.  More than 130 exhibiting companies displayed products, services, tactical gear and technologies ranging from state-of-the-art surveillance and communications systems, robots and firearms, to the latest in unmanned aerial systems.

 The 8th Annual Border Security Expo conference program’s Opening Keynote was presented by U.S. Department of Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, followed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, confirmed just 10 days prior the Expo’s opening day. Day two kicked off with a keynote address by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Deputy Director Daniel Ragsdale, followed by keynote presentations by U.S. Border Patrol Chief Michael J. Fisher, and Assistant Commissioner, Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Mark Borkowski.  

 Closing the 8th Annual Border Security Expo to a packed ballroom was a procurement panel presentation delivered by Mark Borkowski, Assistant Commissioner, Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and Bill Weinberg, Director and Head of Contracting, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. This closing panel session provided insights to private industry on technology strategies, future trends and procurement practices.

Border Security Expo also served as the launch venue for the Border News Network (BorderNewsNetwork.com), a multi-media global news network available in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Arabic, providing the latest breaking news, analysis, and product information on all aspects of border security worldwide. BNN’s Editor-in-Chief, David Silverberg, was given an exclusive interview with Assistant Commissioner Mark Borkowski regarding his vision for border procurement over the next five years.
