The 2019 Close Protection Conference

The Close Protection Conference is the single largest and most influential event for the global protective security industry. This year the conference will run from December 12 to 14, 2019 at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.

The CP Conference & EP Training is sponsored by the International Protective Security Board (IPSB), the only non-profit EP-centric board with the mission of elevating protection professionals' standards, opportunities, and industry insights, which is committed to delivering a unique educational and networking experience for seasoned service providers, new and aspiring EP professionals, and for representatives of all industry sectors.

Putting the conference together is always a herculean effort. Additionally, all the speakers and panelists are volunteers as the IPSB’s motto is by, with, and for the industry. We have a dynamic lineup of educational panels and networking opportunities.

Highlights for the agenda include:

• CSO Keynote
• Global Intelligence Briefing
• EP Operations in Latin America
