Buffalo to host Homeland Security Conference

Posted at 9:22 PM, Dec 04, 2015

More than 1,000 Homeland Security and emergency management personnel will be coming to Buffalo.

The National Homeland Security Conference will be held in the Queen City from June 6-8, 2017 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

Officials estimate this will bring $2 million into the local economy, including the more than 3,000 downtown hotel rooms that will be occupied.

Buffalo was selected in part because it is a border community.
