Traveller Identification Programme Symposium 2019

The TRIP2019 SkyLive Stream is brought to you by Securiport -

In June 2019, ICAO convened The ICAO TRIP Symposium and Exhibition on ICAO Traveller Identification Programme (TRIP) at ICAO Headquarters in Montréal, Canada. The key point of the ICAO TRIP Strategy is a recognized need for a holistic and integrated approach to traveller identification management.

Driven by predicted increases in traveller volumes and ongoing security risks, air industry, border control authorities, and travel document issuing agencies are looking for more efficient and secure ways to identify and process travellers, while harnessing the capabilities and opportunities afforded by emerging or evolving technologies, the focus is to incorporate technology with the interdependent elements of the ICAO Traveller Identification Programme (TRIP) Strategy and maximize the benefits of using digital representation to mitigate challenges for future travellers. Accordingly, the theme of the 2019 Symposium highlighted how to Bridge the Physical-Digital Document Divide.
