Tunnels are an increasingly important part of the infrastructure network. They create challenges for incident prevention and management, fire protection and security against attacks or sabotage. These aspects will be the main focus of this meeting. This will offer an excellent opportunity for experts working with transport, infrastructure security systems, manufacturers and technical organisations to exhange their experiences in an international forum.

Tunnel safety and security is a challenge for both private and public sectors as they work to improve homeland security. The conference will provide a forum to discuss different viewpoints and experiences about tunnel safety and security with the presence of speakers from:
  • Public administration at all levels
  • Fire services, law enforcement, emergency medical services
  • Private companies, and
  • Research and technical organisations. 

Modern exhibition facilities will also be available in the congress centre. This will offer an opportunity for organisations involved in tunnel design, construction, maintenance and protection to show their products, services and technological innovations, providing an excellent opportunity to establish new commercial contacts.
