Clarion and UBM have announced the co-location of two of the most important events for the UK security industry in a ground-breaking strategic alliance, from May 2020 onwards.
It has been revealed that next year will see IFSEC move to a brand new dateline of 19 – 21 May and it will welcome three prestigious events alongside it at Excel London; Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX), Ambition and Forensics Europe Expo.
Building on a rich history of the two exhibitions – IFSEC steeped in the trade and commercial security world and Security & Counter Terror Expo immersed in national security – the collaboration of these key events has been 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, and Firex International as well as the wider security community, also lend additional diversity and strength to this new alliance.
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. In doing so, the industry will see a single marketplace for the security ecosystem made up of installers, government end users, corporate end users, integrators, manufacturers and distributors. The announcement of the move to stage Ifsec and SCTX together at London’s Excel from 2020 is already being warmly welcomed, as the security industry look forward to seeing one sole event for the whole community.
