ID at the Borders Conference (Europe)


ID at the Borders Conference (Europe)
April 25-26, 2017
Frankfurt Main, Germany

This annual event in Europe continues to bring together the critical players in the borders community. We focus our programme on the user perspective and invite key decision makers to provide updates to the industry on border management, travel facilitation and security, migration management and more.

What border strategies are needed to manage the incoming waves of migrants? How can countries and sectors collaborate together through sharing information in advance? How can border agencies manage the floods of refugees ad hoc and in an often challenging environment? How reliable are the documents that are being presented? How can biometrics help with these new challenges?


We are delighted to have confirmed the following speakers:

Glen Wimbury, BI Board Director and Assistant Director, Border Force Technical Strategy, UK Border Force Fares Rahmun, IT-Project Manager, EU VIS and Smart Borders, Federal Office of Administration, Germany Mathias Grell, Project Manager, EasyPASS, German Federal Police Hans de Moel, BI Board Director and Policy Officer Border Control, Royal Netherlands Marechaussee (KMar) – Ministry of Defence Edgar Beugels, Head of Research and Development Unit, Frontex Gyu-Hong Lee, Senior Advisor, Immigration and Border Management, Department of Migration Management, International Organisation for Migration Ken Fritzsche, Identity Technology Division Director, OBIM, DHS, USA Maik Rudolf, Chief Inspector; Federal Police Headquarters, Section Border Police Affairs, German Federal Police Philippe van Triel, Policy Officer, European Commission Gregor Pelzl, Head of Coordination Office for Migration and PNR; German Federal Police Tony Smith, Member of BI Advisory Council and Managing Director, Fortinus Global Markus Nuppeney, Official Electronic ID Documents, Federal Office for Information Security BSI, Germany Gordon Wilson, President, WorldReach Software Corporation Markus Richter, Head of Department 7 – Infrastructure and IT, Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) Tomasz Blasiak, Electoral Expert, UN EAD, OSCE, USAID Mick Neville, Founder, Super Recognisers Unit and formerly with Scotland Yard Vinh Nguyen-Xuan, Senior Project Manager, Frankfurt Airport Guido Peetermans, Project Manager, Smart Security, IATA Isabelle Barnett, Senior Project Manager, I-Checkit, INTERPOL Alexander Castanon Reglero, Senior Policy advisor, Advice & Development, Identity Fraud and Documents Centre of Expertise (ECID), Royal Netherlands Marechaussee (KMar) – Ministry of Defence
