On October 24-25, 2018 Targi Lublin S.A. will be the host of the second edition of The Eastern Conference and Fair „BORDERS”. Border security at the EU’s eastern flank, challenges that are associated with the issue, a review of the state of Polish Border Guards’ equipment, modernisation of supporting infrastructure, the role of the airports in the RP border system as well as the issue of recruitment process are only few of all the topics that will be raised during this year’s edition of the event.
The deepening Refugee Crisis as well as potential escalation of the conflict in Ukraine are two major challenges that the Border Guards in Poland and the EU have to face. During the “BORDERS” conference theoreticians as well as practitioners will have an opportunity to share experiences as well as ideas on ensuring safety at the eastern borders of the EU. The event will also be a great opportunity to discuss the scope as well as means of cooperation between the Border Guards and other services that work within the border zones.
Another leading subject of the conference will be the role of the airports in the RP border system which will cover e.g. regulations concerning functioning of the passenger traffic control system for anti-terroristic purposes (PNR).
Due to a number of vacancies in the Border Guards and other services, the second day of the “BORDERS” will be devoted to various aspects of effective recruitment. A special focus will be given to its particular stages as well as the aspects of promotion of the uniformed services as attractive employers.
The conference is targeted at the uniformed services, academic communities, experts from analytical centres of the institutions related to border traffic and cross-border co-operation as well as at everyone who is interested in working for the uniformed services.
Complementary to the conferences is the fair during which Polish and foreign companies will present a wide scope of equipment, devices and technologies that would be useful for the Border Guards, Custom Service and sanitary control. During the event we expect representatives of the institutions that are connected with the subject of eastern EU flank protection as well as representatives of Polish Border Guards’ logistics and technology departments.
