2020 Virtual T2 Meeting

The 2020 TAPA T2-Meeting will take place virtually this year. The Transported Asset Protection Association (Americas) will bring together those within law enforcement, cargo theft investigations, and leaders in the supply chain security industry.

This annual event is traditionally available to members of the association. However, we will extend this year's event to members and non-members. Even better, we are waiving registration fees for non-members.

Below is the listing of sessions. Register for each session individually. Register for one or register for ALL!
