Organisers UBM and Clarion have announced the co-location of their ever-popular IFSEC International and Security & Counter Terror Expo events from 2020. Next year, IFSEC International will move to a new dateline of 19-21 May at London’s ExCeL.
From next year, IFSEC International welcomes three events alongside it at ExCeL London: Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX), Ambition and Forensics Europe Expo.
Building on an extremely rich history for the two exhibitions – with IFSEC International steeped in the trade and commercial security world and SCTX immersed in national security – the new collaboration is designed to “meet the strength of demand for a central focal point” for the security industry.
The additional synergies between the first responder-focused Ambition and Forensics Europe Expo, which currently run alongside SCTX, as well as UBM’s own co-located and ever-popular event FIREX International “lend additional diversity and strength” to this new alliance, state the organisers.
According to UBM: “ExCeL London will become the global destination for the security community, pushing the boundaries of security product innovation and expertise”. 38,000 trade, commercial, public and policing/security professionals will unite at one venue to discover the most extensive range of security suppliers on offer.
Due to this move, the industry will witness a single marketplace for the security ecosystem made up of corporate and Government end users, installers, integrators, manufacturers and distributors.
