About Secured Cities
The 8th edition of the Secured Cities conference will be held November 15 – 17, 2016 in Houston, TX.
Recognized as the largest and only conference dedicated to the public/private partnership initiatives in the Public Safety and emergency management sectors, Secured Cities delivers a unique blend of peer-to-peer learning on hands on experience.
Coordinating efforts among public and private municipal stakeholders allows for a cohesive security and risk mitigation plan. That is the mantra of Secured Cities, the only content-driven national conference providing an interactive forum for public safety, law enforcement and management-level security personnel – both public and private – to address trending topics relevant to securing municipal, educational, and healthcare and transportation sectors.
Funding and rapid technology advancement are two issues both public safety and security personnel are challenged with when it comes to today’s strategic planning. As public and private partnerships emerge across the country, having a venue where law enforcement, emergency management, security and government officials can meet in a collaborative environment is essential. Secured Cities is that venue.
Whether you are accountable for understanding and implementing government funding and grant initiatives, emerging technologies, security and emergency management policy and operations, best practices and peer-led applications, Secured Cities provides the educational and networking opportunities to help you establish the programs and build the relationships to address today’s security and emergency management challenges.
The one-of-a-kind event showcases the wireless capabilities of our nation’s cities and suburbs, featuring three-days of classroom sessions/panel discussions, a two-day sponsors’ hall featuring the latest in new products and technologies, and several interactive venue security tours including, NASA Kennedy Space Center, Reliant Stadium complex, and the City of Houston’s Office of Emergency Management Operations Center and HEC.
Also, Security Technology Executive magazine, in coordination with Secured Cities, are again honoring the most innovative integrated deployments the security industry has to offer. For the 10th consecutive year, security, risk, emergency management and law enforcement professionals, along with systems integrators and PE firms are invited to showcase their unique projects. The winning projects in the highly competitive Security Innovation Awards program, will receive some well-deserved recognition at the Secured Cities Awards Reception at the Crowne Plaza Reliant Park hotel on November 16, 2016.
The two-and-a-half day event offers more than 48 peer-led sessions, by nationally recognized instructors. The exhibit hall will feature 100 exhibitors showcasing the latest in the products and services you need to keep your organization prepared for all security and emergency situations.
