applied technical security conference - where the eminent
figures in the international security industry get
together share best practices and technology - will be

informative tutorials on key developments in security
technology, and collaborate and socialize with their

entertainment and shopping district, conveniently close
to many famous museums, convenient transport, Vondel
Park, and a plentitude of restaurants and bars.
