The countdown is on to Security & Policing, the Official UK government global security event, which returns to the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre between 14-16 March 2023.

Hosted by the Home Office’s Joint Security & Resilience Centre (JSaRC), Security & Policing offers a world‐class opportunity to meet and discuss the latest advances in delivering national security and resilience with UK and overseasgGovernment officials and senior decision makers across the law enforcement and security sectors.

The closed event welcomes over 300 exhibitors and 6,000 attendees across the three days, with all exhibitors and visitors subject to Home Office approval.

The overarching theme for this year’s event is ‘Securing our future safety and prosperity’, through advancing National Security and Resilience, Policing Innovation and Protecting our People and Places. Attendees will be able to learn about the innovations, policies and cutting-edge technology available to respond to the latest and future security challenges and threats.

Exhibition & Programme
Security & Policing (S&P) 2023 will offer an extensive exhibition of over 300 leading exhibitors from across the supply chain, showcasing best-in-class security solutions and capabilities to address a variety of procurement needs.

Another key benefit of participation in S&P is to gain insight and help contribute to thinking and driving change in government and law enforcement. Alongside the main exhibition, there will be an impressive programme of keynotes led by senior UK government officials, policing officials and industry speakers, across the main keynote theatre and Fusion Forum.

New for 2023, the Innovation Zone brings together government, industry and international partners to collaborate on how innovation, science and technology (IST) can help solve the latest security and policing challenges.

Government partners will present technical problems and demand signals on current and future capability gaps to engage with industry, as well as how they can provide gateway access to funding and collaboration opportunities to deliver IST solutions.

Visitors can also meet and engage with officials and operational staff from participating government departments, as well as experience hands-on demonstrations of the latest innovations and technologies.

This year’s event will feature an expanded Government Zone at the heart of the show floor. In addition to the usual blend of key government partners participating in the Government Zone, there will be a unique opportunity to get exposure to and connect with the people working in Border Security and Policing across government within two dedicated zones alongside the core area.

The Border Security Zone will bring together key government officials across the full border security journey. From overseas, at the border and in-country, to goods and people, land, sea and airports, you can learn more about some of the most innovative projects and programmes currently happening within government.

The Policing Zone will bring together key law enforcement agencies and officials to showcase the latest developments including projects and programmes across our key themes; Policing of the future, Specialist capabilities, Shaping the future workforce and International perspective.

The Government Zone gives visitors and exhibitors access and exposure to senior decision makers and policy developers in Government, and is the place to meet and engage with officials and operational staff from a range of UK Government departments and law enforcement agencies to hear their latest priorities, developments and collaboration opportunities.

Immersive experience
JSaRC’s renowned Live Immersive Experience returns to this year’s event, providing visitors with a narrative-led, content-rich, immersive experience, which gives an insight into technologies and solutions to solve the latest and future security challenges and threats.

This year’s immersive experience will be based on the timed escape room model which has progressive stations with a single solution. The challenge will focus on a team being required to successfully navigate several stations – each showcasing different security skills that can be employed as part of an effort to stop a terrorist incident.

To complement the live event and enhance the visitor experience, Security and Policing+ will also provide event attendees a secure, online platform for attendees to watch back content on-demand, connect and arrange meetings at the event and browse exhibitor profiles.

Limited exhibitor space is still available and visitor applications close on Friday 10 March 2023. To find out more, apply for a free visitor pass or enquire about exhibiting at the show (criteria applies), visit the website below.
