12 January 2018
Western Business Exhibitions has announced the launch of The Security Event at the NEC this April.
Western Business Exhibitions (WBE) has announced the launch of The Security Event - a brand- new exhibition for the UK’s security industry which will co-locate with the Health and Safety Event at the NEC from the 9th - 11th April.
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.
In addition to The Health & Safety Event, other sister shows co-locating will be The Fire Safety Event, & The Facilities Event. This marks the return of a leading security event for the first time in five years.
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.”
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.”
The Security Event will feature professionally accredited seminar content and an exhibition comprising of the leading brands in the security sector. The free-to-attend event will attract end users, installers, specifiers, consultants and the full UK buying chain.
