This event is taking place as part of a UK Homeland Security trade mission to North America. The delegation will include UK Government Officials and industry leaders. The focus of the mission will be to strengthen UK, US and Canadian Homeland Security through developing transatlantic business relationships.

· Defence diversification - Technology up for grabs
· Investing in the UK
· Complimentary networking lunch
· Defence & Security Opportunities in Canada

The event is a tremendous opportunity to learn and discuss new security products, forge new business relationships and network with government officials and private companies.
