The 2024 Close Protection Conference


The Close Protection Conference is the largest and most influential global protective security industry event. The Conference will run from December 4 - 6, 2024, in Nashville, TN.  

The CP Conference & EP Training is hosted 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.
