New security event launches
23 January 2018
Western Business Exhibitions (WBE) has launched The Security Event, a new exhibition for the UK’s security industry. It will take place from 9th to 11th April 2019 at the NEC, Birmingham.
The Security Event is backed by seven industry leading manufacturers and distributors as founding partners, all of whom will be exhibiting at the event including Anixter, Comelit, Dahua, TDSi, Texecom, Tyco and Videcon.
The launch event will be co-located with The Health & Safety Event, The Fire Safety Event, & The Facilities Event.
Commenting on the launch, Tim Else, director at Western Business Exhibitions said: “We are excited to be putting security back on the agenda at the NEC. We have long been told by the industry that they want to see a major UK exhibition back in this location and we are extremely pleased to have the founding partners who are throwing their full support behind the event.”
Clym Brown, marketing director, Texecom comments: “We’re partnering with The Security Event because it gives us the chance to reconnect with our installer base in the Midlands and North of the country.”
TDSi managing director John Davies adds: “Since security left its traditional Birmingham NEC venue we have noticed that some security professionals and consultants from the Midlands, Northern England and Scotland seem to be absent at other events. TDSi is very pleased to support The Security Event as an answer to these needs. We look forward to meeting our partners and customers in the heart of the Midlands again in 2019.”
“Gives Dahua the opportunity to get in front of the UK market” Ben Perkins, head of operations, Dahua UK & Ireland agrees.
Andy Croston, owner, Videcon explains: “There is a gap in the market for an exhibition that really focuses on installation businesses in the UK and we believe that such an event needs to be in a more centralised location. Coming back to the NEC was a no-brainer for us and meant we just had to be part of this project.”
Francesca Boeris, managing director, Comelit says: “Comelit are extremely excited to become a founding partner of The Security Event 2019. The events concept and UK focus aligns perfectly with Comelit’s aims moving forwards. We look forward to showcasing Comelit’s constant innovation and friendly technology to the UK Security Market at the NEC in 2019.”
“The opportunity to take an active role as a Founding Partner in an industry event at the location that so many of our customers consider “home” was extremely welcome. Furthermore, the concept, focus and size of the show fits with our requirements and plans for a major part of our business.” Gordon Morrison, sales director, Access & Video, GB, Tyco Security Products concludes.
The Security Event will feature professionally accredited seminar content and an exhibition. The free-to-attend event will attract end users, installers, specifiers, consultants and the full UK buying chain.
