While the Conference was originally designed specifically for law enforcement personnel, it has developed into a great educational and networking tool for public and private sector organizations. It provides rights holders with an unsurpassed opportunity to meet and network with front-line operational law enforcement officers from a large number of countries representing a diverse cross-section of police, customs, prosecution and regulatory agencies.

The event hashtag will be #IPcrimeConference – join the conversation.
