ICAO Global Aviation Security Symposium #AVSEC2017

AVSEC Culture – Beyond the Standards

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will be holding its inaugural Global Aviation Security Symposium from 12 – 14 September at the ICAO Headquarters in Montréal, Canada.

The three-day Symposium will bring together aviation security (AVSEC) professionals from around the globe to advance the cultivation of a new mindset towards aviation security, embracing it as a culture that goes beyond a set of standards. The event will strategically enhance international efforts to address the threat posed by terrorists targeting civil aviation by reinforcing, strengthening and promoting the international framework of aviation security standards. Participants will benefit from an interactive exhibition showcasing the latest State and industry AVSEC technology and process innovations, along with dynamic learning workshops.

The Symposium will provide a valuable opportunity for networking and collaboration between States, ICAO, industry leaders, and representatives from different international and regional aviation organizations.
