HALO Counter Terrorism Summit (29 Oct – 2 Nov 2012)
San Diego, California will play host to HALO’s premier counter-terrorism event 29 October – 02 November 2012. The event, held at the Paradise Point Resort in Mission Bay, will occupy the entire island creating unique training, exhibiting, and sponsorship opportunities for all who attend. Over the years, HALO’s training summits have drawn the best and brightest from across the counter-terrorism and emergency response fields.
The Halo Corporation is a California based company founded by former Special Operations, National Security, and Intelligence personnel. Halo exists to provide safety and security for those in need and to improve force protection, all aspects of security, humanitarian aid, and disaster response.
The 2012 Summit will take a giant leap forward in training and demonstration capabilities, as well as allowing much more time and opportunities for networking as a result of this year’s location. Located five minutes north of downtown and the airport, the 2012 Summit provides convenience for delegates and exhibitors, yet enough freedom for live-action scenarios, Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) operations, DoD demonstrations, and hands-on exhibits. The 2012 Summit will be formatted as a 5-day, multi-track, training environment offering delegates the ability to customize the training they receive over the course of the week, as well as providing an environment that allows unique access to exhibitors. Due to the location, and fewer operating restrictions, exhibitors and sponsors have the freedom to hold demonstrations that would normally be banned at other venues. The 2012 Summit strives to make the delegate-exhibitor interaction second to none, with all attendees having the opportunity to learn about the latest technology and equipment available to those operating in the counter-terrorism and emergency response fields. With water on all sides, a dedicated marina, and UAV overflight permissions, the sky is literally the limit at the HALO Counter-Terrorism Summit 2012. Please contact a HALO representative at +1 619.881.9125 x3 for more information regarding sponsoring, exhibiting, or attending.
The HALO Counter-Terrorism Summit 2012 will feature top trainers from the counter-terrorism, emergency response, homeland security, and cyber security industries. Delegates will find themselves completely immersed in five days of current and relevant training centered around a custom track of their choosing. Many of the courses taught at the 2012 Summit will be eligible for continuing education credits. Grant funding is available for first responders. A few of the featured training sessions will include: Islamic Literalist Ideology by Joe Butta, Low Light Operations by Ken Good, Patron Saints of the Underworld by Roberto Almonte’, Extremist Mindset in South America by Clare Lopéz, and Social Engineering by Chris Hadnagy.

Exhibitors, sponsors, and government representatives will have the opportunity to demonstrate their products and/or capabilities throughout the week. A myriad of live-action scenarios and exercises are scheduled to take place demonstrating the latest technology available to counter-terrorism and emergency response professionals. The 2012 Summit is specifically designed to allow more interaction between those who develop the products and those who use them. A few of the featured exhibits scheduled to appear at the 2012 Summit include: EOD demonstrations, UAS operations, kill house demonstrations, first responder scenarios, and cyber security demonstrations.
