WSF is the Central and Eastern Europe’s leading, two-day conference dedicated to international safety and security. This is also the place to promote the International Defence Industry Exhibition
Warsaw Security Forum is organised by the Foundation of Kazimierz Pułaski in cooperation with the National Security Bureau - an advisory body to the President of the Republic of Poland.
- Russia - a security challenge; European Strategic Perspective; increased presence of the US Army in Poland and dynamisation of the European defence cooperation are the four main themes of all security debates - said Paweł Soloch, the head of the National Security Bureau, during the opening ceremony of the WSF.
Each year, the WSF brings together key policy makers, industry leaders, as well as military and civilian experts from around the world in order to discuss events, trends, as well as opportunities and challenges lying ahead for the Transatlantic Community. Last year, the Warsaw Security Forum gathered a record breaking audience of over 800 guests, including 120 speakers from Europe, North America and Asia.
This year, the Warsaw Security Forum is divided into three break-out session tracks that together establish a framework for the intellectual exchange during the Forum, as well as plenary sessions. The plenary sessions are predominantly focused on issues of grand strategy, and broadly defined future of international order, This framework is complemented by a number of side events, including by invitation only meetings between experts, representatives of business and government stakeholders.
