IPSB: The Close Protection Conference 2023 in Dallas, Texas.


The IPSB 2023 Close Protection Conference, held at the Toyota Music Factory in Dallas, Texas, from December 6 to 8, was a landmark event that continued its tradition of gathering the brightest minds in the executive protection and security industry. This year’s conference is set against the dynamic backdrop of Dallas’s vibrant cityscape.

Elevating Industry Standards

The IPSB 2023 was a testament to the industry’s commitment to continuous improvement. With a mission to elevate professional standards, the conference provided a unique platform for both seasoned service providers and aspiring executive protection (EP) professionals to engage with renowned experts, leaders, and practitioners.

A curated agenda offered a glimpse into the depth and breadth of content available at the conference. Sessions ranged from tactical skill enhancements to strategic discussions about the future of security. The agenda page on the conference website remains a valuable resource for those who attended and a source of inspiration for those who couldn’t make it.

As the IPSB 2023 concludes, the conversations and connections made in Dallas continue to resonate within the industry. For us, the conference was a stepping stone towards greater achievements in their careers. For the industry at large, the IPSB remains a guiding light, illuminating the path to higher standards, opportunities, and insights.

The Close Protection Conference is more than just a yearly event; it is a movement towards a more secure future.

For Royal American, the Close Protection Conference has been an integral part of our conference and trade fair visits for many years. From originally a handful of participants, the event has become one of the most important dates for the professional exchange of personal protection and security companies.

The global security situation requires a constant exchange of information and knowledge in our industry and these types of events make an important contribution to the community and ultimately serve all individuals who rely on professional protection services for a variety of reasons. We at Royal American are proud to be part of this community and will attend next year’s Close Protection Conference in Nashville.
