Conferences and Exhibitions

International Security Expo - it is unmissable

The event partners with many of the Security industries professional bodies including ASIS with its international reach and The Security Institute who are offering CPD credits for attending and are once again brining their 'NextGen' initiative to the event. 50 or so police cadets who are still at school will be taken on a hosted tour to show these potential security professionals of the future the vast range of opportunities from the technical through to law enforcement all available under the banner of Security.

With the realities of terror and innovation threads running through the overarching theme of Design, Secure, Respond, over 375 exhibitors are expected at Olympia for the two days of the event. Those exhibitors, the international delegations and the wider ranging content programme are expected to attract over 13,000 visitors. The two summits are ‘by application only' so early registration and application to attend is essential. They are expected to be very heavily oversubscribed. Last year many of the conferences were standing room only and numbers meant there were queues. The new CPNI designed entrance will deal with those but early registration and early attendance on each day are the only ways to deal with the others.

It is worth noting that the International Security Expo is co-located with the International Disaster Response Expo, launched last year but focusing on the massive good delivered across the globe by DFID and International Non-Government Organisations (INGOs). Whilst a separate event with its own conferences and exhibition, the cross over in technologies and processes is huge in some areas, communications, critical event planning and drones are all perfect examples of this. The good thing is one ticket gets free access to both events.

The International Security Expo with the co-located International Disaster Response Expo complement the suite of events now owned by the Nineteen Group. The new The Security Event at the NEC in Birmingham, launched this year, has already massively outgrown its launch footprint and has brought an event focused on the channel market back to the heart of the UK in Birmingham. It has co-located Fire, Health and Safety and Facilities events and the most recent acquisition by the Nineteen Group was the Emergency Services Show - another Midlands based event that ensures a mutually complementary suite of exhibitions and conferences delivering real effect.

Peter Jones, the CEO of the Nineteen Group sums up the reason why he has built the Nineteen Group this way when he said in a recent interview: "My main motivation is to add something back, helping make the world a little bit safer for my family and in reality, for everyone. It makes leaving the house each morning to do something that helps pay the mortgage a pleasure, rather than a necessity.”  It is that ethos of making a difference that is what the International Security Expo and the others are all about.

The question is not 'am I available on 3-4 Dec 2019 to attend the International Security Expo', it is 'how many of my team can I take to cover the fantastic content and make best use of the huge number of exhibitors and visitors'. There won’t be another opportunity to get so many relevant contacts in one place. Can you afford not to be there?
