Equity International is the exclusive organizer of the "U.S.-Russia: Experience in Fighting Terrorism" Conference and the co-organizer (with the Mid-Atlantic Russia Business Council) of the U.S. Country Pavilion at the Security and Safety Technologies Trade Show, scheduled for February 1 - 4, 2005 at the Crocus Convention Center in Moscow. The Trade Show is the biggest exhibition and congress in the field of security and safety in Russia, other former Soviet republics, and Central/Eastern Europe, with more than 500 exhibitors representing 30 countries, and 25,000 attendees.

In the wake of recent terrorist attacks in Russia, the U.S.-Russia Homeland Security Trade Mission provides an extraordinary opportunity to provide homeland security solutions in a critical part of the world. And funding is available - Russia has announced it will spend an additional $10 billion for homeland security, in addition to its defense budget. Equity International's initiative to organize the "U.S.-Russia: Experience in Fighting Terrorism" Conference and a US delegation to Moscow are greatly supported by the State Duma Committee on Security in Russia.

The U.S.-Russia Homeland Security Trade Mission, led by Congressman Curt Weldon, Vice Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and Founder of the Congressional Homeland Security Caucus, combines two important homeland security events, The Security and Safety Technologies Trade Show and The 2005 Homeland & Global Security Summit.  The full Trade Mission Package provides your company with an affordable and effective means of participation in this important market.

Participants in the Trade Mission will be provided with exhibit space in the U.S. Pavilion, will have full access to all of the Trade Show's conferences and workshops, and will be invited to a VIP Reception and Dinner at the Kremlin on February 1, 2005. The exclusive Kremlin event is expected to be attended by 500 VIPs, including more than 200 Russian security and defense leaders.

Equity International is the leading U.S. facilitator of business involvement and solutions in homeland security. Equity International organizes yearly Homeland & Global Security Summits, the most influential homeland security trade shows in the United States. Since 2002, Equity International has also organized almost monthly homeland security briefings at the National Press Club, providing the latest information from Congressional and Administration leaders on homeland security funding and programs. Equity International organized its first homeland security event in 1998, when the firm hosted a national conference on the threat of Osama bin Laden to U.S. corporate facilities and personnel. One of the firm's latest events – The Capitol Hill Homeland Security Technology Showcase – attracted many government and industry leaders.

Thousands of top government and industry leaders have participated in Equity's homeland security forums. News media coverage has included CNN, C-SPAN, CNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, BBC, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Financial Times, and many other major news media.
