Education, Technical Training and Inspiration
IWCE’s conference program delivers expert strategy, real-world insights and solutions on the wide-ranging technologies you need for your critical communications system. Whether you work at an agency, enterprise or in public service, the IWCE conference provides you with the education and guidance you need for this rapidly changing world.
IWCE is the only gathering of the year to bring together all the stakeholders in public safety, government, emergency management/disaster response, utilities, transportation, healthcare and other critical-infrastructure sectors to network, learn and explore how the convergence of critical technology changes how they operate in critical communications.
