The 9th annual The Security Summit becomes bi-coastal in 2012.

 The Security Network’s largest annual event brings in dozens of exhibitors from multiple countries in addition to several hundred attendees from all sectors of security and defense. This year the Summits will take place in two locations: San Diego, CA on May 9-10 and Washington, DC on May 16-17.

We will continue to work closely with an expanding number of companies, countries, military and government agencies and sponsors and other partners to identify and promote rapid adoption of dual-usage security products and services from innovative companies around the world.

 Two venues will allow us to expand programming content as well as geographic coverage. With cyber security, anti-terrorism, GIS, port and maritime security and international collaboration as major themes for the Washington, D.C. conference, the San Diego conference will play to the strengths of the region and focus on “San Diego as a living test bed” for fielding innovative technologies for a wide variety of first responders and war fighters across the region.

The Security Summit – West will highlight a number of the region’s cooperative initiatives ranging from maritime (JHOC) to public safety (3C’s and RCIP) to cyber (SOeC and CSI-SD), all models of collaboration and innovation – the very underpinnings of a successful “living test bed.”


What types of organizations will TSS-West appeal to?

… And anyone in the private sector wishing to sell into these market segments


At The Security Network commercial success is a win-win-win situation: Companies make sales, first responders find technologies that help them do their jobs more efficiently or safely, and local citizens benefit from a more secure environment. But you don’t have to take our word for it. The San Diego Police Department and San Diego Fire-Rescue can tell the story better. Read in their own words about the technologies they have deployed that were found through our network.


Why should you exhibit or look for innovative technology at a TSN forum?

The first and best reason is because you will find innovative technology.

For attendees, exhibitors, speakers and sponsors alike, participating in The Security Summit is an uncommon experience. The things that set our events apart  are:
