WBE (Western Business Exhibitions) will be hosting The Security Event, fuelled by a collaboration between Security Essen, Nineteen Events and International Security Expo.
The brand new UK exhibition will be taking place on 9–11 April 2019 at the NEC, Birmingham. It will be co-located alongside The Fire Safety Event, The Health & Safety Event and The Facilities Event.
The conference aims to provide clarity to the market place and allow exhibitors and installers to reconnect.
Tristan Norman, founder & event director of The Security Event, commented: “We are thrilled to be working with Peter and the team at Nineteen events, they have a tremendous pedigree in the sector and run a world-class event at Olympia every year.
“As event organisers, we felt that there is a need to clarify the positioning of each event to the industry and that working together will enable us both to create the best platforms possible for our different segments of the industry.
Peter Jones, chief executive of Nineteen events, said: “I am delighted to engage in this partnership to support The Security Event. There is a clear difference between our shows with International Security Expo in London focused primarily on End-User/Government and The Security Event at the NEC primarily focused on the Channel market.”
The Security Event will host over 100 of the world’s leading security brands, thus hoping to demonstrate the range of complementary industry segments that each platform offers.
Jones added: “Furthermore, with the two shows being held at opposite ends of the calendar, April & November, it’s a perfect alliance. We will fully support the Western team with our 16 years of security sector know-how, marketing/PR support and alignment with our global database of over 180,000 security professionals.”
