Why CONSULT 2017

Why CONSULT 2017 Image
Many critical issues affecting security consultants and design engineers don’t get enough discussion. Manufacturers' dedicated events focus mainly on increasing understanding of their own products, and consultants can only allocate so much time to attend non-revenue producing events. This multi-manufacturer event is more issue-focused than product-focused. An in-depth discussion of critical issues facing security consultants and engineers is the intent.

San Antonio

The city has always been a crossroads and a meeting place. The sounds and flavors of Native Americans, Old Mexico, Germans, the Wild West, African-Americans and the Deep South mingle and merge. Over thirty-one million visitors a year delight in the discovery of San Antonio's charms.
