The conference is expected to attract over 350 international and regional delegates. The exhibition, which will see more than 300 exhibitors in attendance, showcases the latest and future innovations in border security, crowd control, threat detection systems, search and rescue technology, drone and anti-drone technology and field operation equipment for law enforcement.

“The evolving challenges of today’s regional security landscape require dynamic and relevant solutions,” said Andrew Marriott, managing director of Comexposium Singapore. “With Asia-Pacific’s most influential thought leaders in homeland security gathered under one roof at Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019, delegates can expect three full days of insightful dialogue on some of the most pressing security challenges faced in the region.”
With the terrorist threat ever present, this year’s conference topics will focus extensively on approaches in combatting extremism, radicalization, and transnational terrorism. Delegates can expect to hear insightful speeches on topics like the future of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and regional approaches to the current terrorism landscape. Speakers addressing these issues are Kumar Ramakrishna, associate professor and head of Policy Studies and National Security Studies Programme, S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Singapore; Ali Soufan, chair and president, The Soufan Group, United States of America; Ahmad El-Muhammady, counter-terrorism analyst, International Islamic University Malaysia; Roman Quaedvlieg, former head of the Australian Border Force Australia; and Dr. Firman Fadillah, head of Counter Terrorism and Radicalism, Center for Terrorism and Radicalism Studies, Indonesia.
In this ever-evolving age, security professionals must utilize the most effective technological innovations to help them make informed decisions about pressing security issues. To fulfill this need, the second day of this year’s conference will be dedicated to discussing the relevance of artificial intelligence and digital technologies to improve homeland security with speakers Michael Chertoff, co-founder and executive chair, The Chertoff Group, and former secretary, US Department of Homeland Security; Fuji Foo, vice president, Business Digitalisation, Certis Technology Singapore, Certis; Michel Cadic, chief scientist of France, Ministry of Interior of France; and Jeff Moss, CEO, DEF CON Communications, Inc., USA
