History of the Homeland Security Conference
The first Homeland Security Conference was held in 2005 in Dallas, Texas, as a platform for security professionals, police and fire chiefs, emergency management personnel and first responders to share information on their processes. As the event’s reputation grew to be the hub for cutting-edge security technology, practices, training and services, it became the place for leaders in the security sector to connect.
Since the first conference, many U.S. cities have hosted the event, including San Francisco, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Tampa, Buffalo and New York City. Attendees include homeland security and emergency management professionals from the largest metropolitan areas in the country.
