Premiere Maritime Security Exhibition to be Held in NYC
For the first time ever, a conference and exhibition will be dedicated solely to the area of maritime security — an area that is so vital to protecting our nation's ports and harbors. Scheduled to occur from September 18-19, 2002, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, both the conference and exhibition is expected to draw participants from the CIA — to shippers and port administrators.
Since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, constant efforts have been focused within maritime security, including threats of cargo entering the U.S. that could contain dangerous and/or hazardous chemicals, and both biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction. The exhibition and conference will offer companies displaying their security "weapons" against terrorism, as well as various members of the maritime community offering speeches and ideas on how our industry can win the war on terrorism.
Some of the companies scheduled to participate in September's events are Kongsberg Simrad, Maersk Sealand, ABS Consulting, L-3 Communications and Lockheed Martin, as well as various government agencies, namely the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and the National Security Council, who is sponsoring this event.
Expected to speak at the conference are Thomas Thune Anderson, president, Maersk Sealand, who will offer his views on "The Shipping Industry and Port Security;" and Joseph Billy, Special Agent in Charge, FBI, New York City office, who will discuss Weapons of Mass Destruction and Port Security. Also invited to attend, but not yet confirmed to speak are New York Governor George Pataki; and Gordon R. England, who currently serves as Secretary of the Navy.
