Counter Terror Expo and IFSEC will take place 19-21 May, 2020 at ExCel, London

This year Counter-Terror Expo (CTX) and IFSEC International will co-locate for the first time, creating the UK’s largest security event. The two events will take place simultaneously from 19-21 May 2020 at the ExCeL, London.

CTX brings together international specialists and experts from industry, government and policing to share ideas and technology within the counter-terrorism field. The content programme will feature themes including drone threats and response, securing major events and public spaces, perimeter and access security, counter surveillance, threat forecasting and prevention, cyber threat detection and mitigation.

IFSEC, the UK and Europe’s leading security event, will welcome tens of thousands of security professionals and provide valuable opportunities to meet with buyers and customers across the supply chain.

The first-time co-location of these two key industry events will allow attendees from the broader security and protection sectors to join with counter-terror stakeholders to source and discuss technologies in crucial areas including surveillance, venue security, AI, access control, transport security and more.

Exhibitors have praised the co-location of the two shows. Antonia McIntosh, Marketing Specialist at Fischer Connections said, “Fischer Connectors is looking forward to be exhibiting at CTX again and as part of the show’s continued growth and popularity, we’re excited to see it co-located with IFSEC which will give us the opportunity to showcase our products and meet and engage with even more visitors representing all aspects of the  security supply chain, all under one roof.”

Nick Booth, VP Marketing at Blighter Surveillance Systems Ltd said, “Co-locating CTX with IFSEC opens the event to a wider and more international audience, which is a win-win for both visitors and exhibitors alike.”

CTX and IFSEC will also be joined by further co-located events within ExCeL – Forensics Europe Expo, Intelligent Building Europe, FIREX International, Safety & Health Expo, Facilities Show and Workplace Wellbeing Show.
