and Equipment for the Police and National Security Services
26-28 April / Gdańsk, AMBEREXPO

The 8th International Police Conference and the accompanying EUROPOLTECH 2017 International Fair of Technology and Equipment for the Police and National Security Services will be held on 26-28 April. For the first time at a new venue: the state-of-the-art AMBEREXPO Exhibition & Convention Centre Gdańsk, home to the MTG SA Gdańsk International Fair Co.

For the uniformed services
“The EUROPOLTECH International Fair of Technology and Equipment for the Police and National Security Services is one of most prestigious exhibition projects: it enjoys a solid interest on the international arena both among the manufacturers and the Police along with the services responsible for national security. At a single time and place, this initiative brings together a large group of professionals and experts who offer equipment of the highest technical and technological quality, dedicated to the uniformed services. It is also an opportunity to establish contacts and work out solutions to serve both the public and private sector,” emphasises Senior Commissioner Helena Michalak, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Police in her message addressed to both events’ participants.

Why Gdańsk?
“Together with our partners, we have decided that in the 10th year of EUROPOLTECH, in order to increase the standard and introduce new formal solutions, it is a good idea to move the event’s location to Gdańsk,” says Andrzej Kasprzak, President of the Management Board, MTG SA Gdańsk International Fair Co. “EUROPOLTECH at AMBEREXPO will not only make the participants feel more comfortable at the trade fair and the conference but will also reduce organisation costs, which translates into decreased participation expenses. The AMBEREXPO Exhibition & Convention Centre also creates opportunities to expand the trade fair’s agenda, while making it possible to respond to the ever more diverse expectations of our customers.”

International Police Conference on logistics
The 8th International Police Conference on Logistics in Public Administration in the Context of the Threats in the Contemporary World - New challenges facing the services which support the primary operations of the formations and entities responsible for national security is organised by the General HQ of the Polish Police.
