Harmonizing Processes for Free-flowing Travel

The Symposium and Exhibition on the ICAO Traveller Identification Programme (TRIP) will take place from 13-15 November 2024 at ICAO Headquarters in Montréal.


The TRIP Symposium is a world-class event enabling the exchange of information on all aspects of traveller identification management. Its various sessions will highlight the need to enhance international cooperation and collaboration to facilitate the traveller's journey while addressing the multiple threats faced by international civil aviation. The improvement of the passenger experience will be achieved by promoting the global regulatory framework established by the provisions of Annex 9 – Facilitation to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, and linking it to the new technology tools available on the market.


Recent global circumstances have driven advancements in technologies and the digitization of various processes, fostering improved interactions between passengers and border authorities. The deployment of these cutting-edge technologies has played a crucial role in empowering authorities to enhance their border control measures. This event will serve as a platform for States and organizations to share insights into best practices, specifications, and technical mechanisms for the successful application and utilization of biometrics.


An exhibition will complement the Symposium, displaying a broad range of products and services related notably to travel document security applications, health proofs emission and authentication, border inspection and automated border control systems, and identification management.
