IBMATA, the International Border Management and Technologies Association, will host its Border Management & Technologies Summit Asia conference and exhibition in New Delhi, India on 4 – 5 October 2018.

Digital identities

This event will explore the emergence of digital identity management, and it’s potential usage for global border management and immigration programmes.

The conference and exhibition will bring together leading government officials from across Central Asia, South-East Asia, Australia and the Middle East to discuss the border security challenges faced in the region and in their respective nations.

India challenge

India has one of the largest land borders in the world, bordering Pakistan, China, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and Tibet. It also has a large maritime border to monitor, constituting 50 percent of its total border.

This has led to the formation of a dynamic border security force that is managed by many different agencies within the Indian Government.

In 2009 the Indian Government created the world’s largest biometric ID systems, Aadhaar. The system provides all Indian nationals with a unique 12-digit identity number to help secure personal information. Since Aadhaar was introduced in India its border security management has evolved rapidly.

IBMATA Chairman, Mr Tony Smith, former Director-General of UK Border Force, will chair the event.

If you are interested in speaking, sponsoring or exhibiting at the event please contact Martyn Hill: or +44 7792 473246.
