Welcome to the Technology Conference & Exhibition

Under the theme “Driving Customs performance with data and technology in the changing landscape of global trade”, the Technology Conference is aimed at exploring technology-supported solutions enabling Customs to operate in a fully digital environment and create an operating model that captures and exploits data from across the trade ecosystem.

A variety of technology-related topics will be discussed during the three-day event, including the Customs-to-Customs exchange of information, data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and the implications of the growing volumes of e-commerce on Customs processes and procedures.
