Clarion and UBM have announced the co-location of IFSEC International and Security & Counter Terror Expo from May 2020. IFSEC will move to a new dateline of 19 – 21 May and welcome three events alongside it at ExCeL London; Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX), Ambition and Forensics Europe Expo. The collaboration of the events has been designed to meet the strength of demand for a central focal point for the security industry.
Gerry Dunphy of IFSEC said: “This is a great fit for IFSEC as it strengthens our message of the critical nature of security as a major global issue. IFSEC will also highly complement this offering by continuing to champion integrated security for the trade and commercial markets. The prospect of these events, working in harmony, promoting expertise and guidance for the broader security environment has already been met with immense anticipation by the security community.”
The announcement of the move to stage IFSEC and SCTX together has been warmly welcomed, as the security industry looks forward to seeing one sole event for the whole community. Comments include:
