European Football Championship matches will be held in Ukraine in June 2012 (EURO 2012) in four cities across the Ukraine
and Poland. The Government of Ukraine will invest more than $100 million in emergency management
and event security, with more than $67 million for airport security by 2012.Currently Ukraine’s emergency management and airport and event security are not at an international standard.
In particular, Ukraine does not have a national emergency telephone call response system; emergency management centers are
underequipped; and airports and sports stadiums are not prepared for the greater security needs that will be present when
Ukraine hosts the European Soccer championships, together with Poland in June, 2012 (EURO–2012).
The purpose was to connect the Ukraine
delegation with companies that have been engaged in the areas of emergency management and communications, event security and
