TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rapiscan Systems, leading provider of inspection technology and solutions for governments and commercial venues tasked with ensuring security is pleased to announce the Accelerate Secure Trade, Transport & Events Summit during the Rapiscan Systems Classic PGA TOUR Champions Golf Tournament, March 28 – April 3, 2022. Furthering education on the next generation of screening technology, the Summit will hold detailed discussions that solve the inefficiencies of inspection at every entry.
“We look forward to the Accelerate Secure Trade, Transport & Events Summit where our industry leaders have a chance to discuss important security topics during the Rapiscan Systems Classic,” Ajay Mehra, President of Rapiscan Systems Cargo & Solutions Group stated.
During the week, participants will be learning about innovations for seaports, air cargo carriers, passenger airports and events helping to secure their customer’s journey. The Summit will feature a demo of the data sharing program using the S2 Global integration platform CertScan® between US Customs and Border Protection at the Port of Gulfport and the Santo Tomás de Castilla Trade Port in Guatemala which was first agreed upon at the Rapiscan Systems Classic in 2019. Under the data sharing program, trade shipped from the port in Guatemala can be fast-tracked by US CBP upon arrival in Gulfport avoiding potential costly delays.
“Bringing together like-minded experts who solve our most difficult security challenges helps to modernize security infrastructure in our fast changing world,” said Jonathan Fleming, President of S2 Global. “The Rapiscan Systems Classic is the perfect week to have these discussions.”
Although cancelled in 2020, Rapiscan Systems continued to support the local Mississippi community in 2021 with a private Pro-Am to benefit the Birdies for Charity program. Since becoming the title sponsor in 2018, Rapiscan Systems has helped raise over $3.37 million for participating charities through its Birdies for Charity program.
“We are thrilled that the Rapiscan Systems Classic is coming back to the coast for 2022,” said Foundation Board President Jonathan Jones. “The local community will welcome summit attendees with our famous southern hospitality both around town and at the Grand Bear golf course. ”
The Accelerate Secure Trade, Transport, and Events Summit will be held in person, but we won’t forget those who may not be able to travel and will offer a virtual ticket too.
