IFSEC International 2015 organiser UBM EMEA has announced the figures from the event. Running from 16-18 June at ExCeL London, IFSEC International reportedly welcomed 23,079 visitors through the doors, increasing attendance by 2% from 2014, driven by UK attendees.
It was reported that the security show benefitted from the co-located events within the Protection & Management Series, attracting an additional 4,536 visitors from across the venue.
According to the organisers the show continued to attract senior decision makers from across the industry with a 14% increase in end-users and a 42% increase in directors and company holders. Video surveillance, access control and integrated security remain significant areas of interest, while the increasing topic of safe cities, which was reflected by the education available on the show floor, and IT and cyber security received more attention than before.
33% of total attendees came from 112 countries, along with exhibitors coming from 45 countries.
Gerry Dunphy, Event Director for IFSEC and FIREX International, said: “IFSEC International once again exceeded all expectations for 2015; the atmosphere on the show floor was fantastic with plenty of innovation and industry expertise on display across the three days. We have had a great response from both our visitors and exhibitors and we look forward to returning to London in 2016 to continue to be the industry leading event showcasing the latest security technologies from across the globe.”
