Renowned Airport Security Experts to Discuss Recent Attempted Terrorist Activity at the 2nd Annual Airport Security Summit 2010, Dubai

January 24, 2010

DUBAI, UAE, January 25 /PRNewswire/ — The Airport Security Summit Middle
East 2010, which will be held from 7- 10 February at the Grand Millennium
Hotel in Dubai, is proud to announce the latest distinguished speaker to join
the expert speaker faculty, Captain William Airman, Chief Security Officer,
flydubai, UAE. Captain Airman will be addressing the current emphasis on
technology as a holistic solution.

The summit, which is sponsored by Boeing Intelligence & Security Systems,
G4S and Indigo Vision and with the participation of Dubai AVSEC Centre is
already playing host to a plethora of renowned airport security experts from
organisations from 8 different countries including KLM Royal Dutch Airlines,
Etihad Airways, Dubai Airports, Aviation Canada, G4S, Abu Dhabi Airports
Company (ADAC), Sharjah Ministry of Health, Toronto Airport, British Embassy
UAE, Fujairah International Airport and Gulf Air.

The last few weeks have seen a number of news stories circulating about
the need to improve airport security intelligence to prevent terrorists from
carrying out fatal attacks. These recent stories have dramatically increased
after Heathrow Airport’s bomb threat on an Emirates flight departing for
Dubai on 9 January and airports around the world announcing heightened
security followed an alleged attempt to bomb a plane landing in Detroit.

Hassan M. Eltaher, President at Aviation Canada and speaker at Airport
Security Middle East 2010, commented “In as much as security measures and
protective layers at airports provide a complicating factor for would-be
hijackers or bombers, the more efficient, long-term remedy lies thousands of
mile away from airports, and starts with ordinary people”.

This is expected to form a large part of the discussion at the Airport
Security Middle East 2010 summit. Additional topics to be addressed at the
forum include: managing the intelligence threat and risk assessment process
in government and private sectors; bridging the gap between airports,
airlines, law enforcement and governmental authorities; examining essential
preventative measures to counter the spread of the H1N1 flu virus; and
evaluating new biometric security technologies and implementation methods.
