BORDERPOL International Security Meeting: Curtailing Terrorist Travel
Sep 9 – Sep 11 all-day

Borderpol’s purpose is to support border agencies worldwide to develop fast, safe and secure borders. Perhaps the greatest threat our agency leaders have to better borders is terrorist travel. ISIS is desperate to move foreign nationals into its fold and presenting new and ever-evolving tactics that border agencies and the supporting tech sector need to harness to help curtail the travel. We have world support from the public and private sector for the most cutting edge, helpful and on-point international meeting on the subject.

This event is organized by BORDERPOL North Americas Director and former 9/11 Commission border counsel Janice Kephart, also founder and CEO of the Secure Identity & Biometrics Association (SIBA).

America’s Customer Festival 2015
Sep 23 all-day

America 728x90

America’s Customer Festival started out as a loyalty-focused event back in 2011 in Las Vegas, NV. Since then, we have evolved along with the industry to cover the entire customer journey – with a special focus on loyalty strategies, CRM solutions, data analytics tools, payment technologies, engagement, and experience.

The American market has always set the standards of customer experiences, but it has become harder and harder for companies to deal with their clients holistically and follow the pace of their ever-changing preferences. The rise of new channels of engagement, smart technologies, data analytics, and the need for convenient services are now mandatory fields for B2C organizations that truly want to be centered in their customer.

2015 will mark a move of the event to New York City for a one-day conference attended by 350+ representatives from retail, airlines, banks, telco and hospitality. We’re making it convenient for C-Level executives from those organizations to be gathered for a full day of strategic content and high level networking in the Mecca of customer- centered businesses.

By participating you can create your own agenda across the following topic areas:

•Big Data
•Customer Engagement
•Customer Experience

No other conference covers all these areas at once, which means that this is the only event integrating the strategies across the entire customer journey. And that’s why organizations who truly want to optimize their customer-centric strategies must attend America’s Customer Festival.

2015 Speakers include:

•Perrin Lawrence, Social Media Strategy, The New York Times
•Darryl Speech, Chief Customer Officer, Greystone & Co.
•Jessica Joines, Chief Marketing Officer, Rakuten Marketing
•Rachel McCarthy, VP or Inflight Experience, JetBlue Airways
