BorderNewsNetwork.com Logs Visitors from 100 Countries within First 30 Days

BorderNewsNetwork.com, the only online news source dedicated to covering all matters related to borders and border security, launched on March 12 with over 30 correspondents around the world. In just 30 days, the site logged visitors from 100 countries on six continents and continues to grow.

“In just our first 30 days our correspondents have covered artillery exchanges between North and South Korea, a wave of cross-border Boko Haram terror in northern Nigeria, the capture of Iranian border guards on the border with Pakistan and cross-Mediterranean waves of immigration into Europe,” said David Silverberg, editor-in-chief. “We’ve featured analyses of border issues from Washington DC and Mexico City, Moscow and Kiev. We’ve also featured expert op-eds and interviews with top border security officials, including Mark Borkowski, assistant commissioner, Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition for US Customs and Border Protection – and we’re just getting started.”

“Our dedicated correspondents around the globe are invaluable to BorderNewsNetwork.com’s growth and success as we continue to serve the news and informational needs of border security and law enforcement agencies on six continents,” said Paul Mackler, President & CEO of Eagle Eye Expositions, and the publisher of Border News Network. “It is extremely gratifying to be read in 100 countries within our first 30 days of operation and that motivates us to intensify our work for this important segment of news.”

In its first month in operation, the top 25 countries producing the most visitors to the site included the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Nigeria, Pakistan, Mexico, Romania, Spain, India, Estonia, Netherlands, South Africa, Russia, Australia, Germany, France, Israel, Brazil, South Korea, Kenya, Ireland, Poland, Indonesia, United Arab Emirates and Switzerland.

Eagle Eye is dedicated to providing news, analysis and information to border security professionals through its portfolio of conferences, exhibitions and digital media platforms.

“Our events attract border security leaders and other federal, state, local and international law enforcement agencies, as well as private-industry, to discuss how to combat transnational organized crime while facilitating legitimate trade and travel,” said Mackler. “Border News Network is a natural extension of our conferences and trade shows, providing the same news, information and analysis, bringing public and private entities together within BorderNewsNetwork.com’s online community, extending its reach, informing and enlightening the world border security community.”
