Embracing the future at Milipol Paris 2023

Good morning to all the distinguished guests and dedicated professionals joining us today at Milipol Paris. It’s our pleasure to extend a warm welcome to everyone here at this epicentre of innovation, knowledge, and collaboration. As we gather here, coffee in hand, let’s immerse ourselves in the anticipation of the enriching experiences that lie ahead.

Our conference programme this year promises to explore the depths of the world of security, kicking off at 14:30 with an opening address by Prefect Yann Jounot, the esteemed CEO of Civipol and President of Milipol Network. His leadership has been a beacon in navigating the complex landscape of security, and his insights are sure to set the tone for discussions ahead.

Following Prefect Jounot, we are privileged to have Amélie Oudea-Castera, the French Minister of Sports and the Olympic and Paralympic Games, share her perspectives from 14:40 to 15:00. Her address is set to unravel the intricate tapestry of securing a global event of this magnitude, underscoring the pivotal role we all play in this grand endeavour.

From 15:00 to 15:30, the stage will be graced by Prefect Michel Cadot, the Interministerial Delegate for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (DIJOP). His wealth of experience and knowledge will provide us with a comprehensive understanding of the multifaceted challenges and strategic approaches essential for ensuring a safe and secure environment for the Games.

Prefect Stéphane Bouillon, Secretary General for National Defence and Security (SGDSN), will then share his invaluable expertise from 15:30 to 16:00. His role in coordinating national security efforts is a testament to our collective commitment to safety and resilience.

But our journey today goes beyond the conference sessions. The Innovation Stage and the Milipol Innovation Awards Ceremony stand as vibrant platforms celebrating the spirit of innovation and excellence that propels our industry forward. These awards are a showcase of the cutting-edge advancements and outstanding contributions that are shaping the future of security and safety.

As we navigate throughout the day, let’s embrace this unique opportunity to learn, share, and connect by engaging in meaningful conversations, building new partnerships, and working together to create a safer world for everyone.

Welcome to Milipol Paris. Here’s to a day filled with inspiration, learning, and collaboration.
