CABSEC: THE CARIBBEAN BASIN COASTAL SURVEILLANCE AND MARITIME SECURITY SUMMIT
SAMSEC: THE SOUTH AMERICAN SECURITY SUMMIT

Defence iQ's annual CABSEC and SAMSEC conference will be held online for the first time in 2021 in order to maintain our commitment to providing a platform for regional cooperation amidst the ongoing disruption caused by COVID-19.

This established forum meets annually and brings together the region's defence and security leadership to discuss strategy, cooperation, requirements and challenges and has helped advance the security dialogue in the region through the forum's objectives to;

Promote regional and hemispheric security cooperation through expanding networks
Help to build enduring partnerships in order to enhance regional security capacity in Central and South America and the Caribbean

By hosting the event online we will be able to welcome regional security leadership without the need for international travel and potential for any disruption. We will place a renewed focus on interactivity and having meaningful discussions with meaningful outcomes. Over two days of panel discussions, showcases of the latest industry solutions, discussion groups and private sidebar meetings, we will continue to provide the setting for this valued and prestigious summit.

Supporting regional security through online events!

In November we ran an online security event focused on nations around the Caribbean Sea.

Covering issues such as the impact of COVID-19, the effects of the most recent hurricane season and ongoing procurement programs, the event highlighted the value of online events to maintain engagement during these challenging times.

Bringing in a host of new features and content to deliver maximum value for our attendees, CABSEC & SAMSEC 2021 will build on this success to continue supporting regional security through immersive online events.
