International Security Expo returns to London to celebrate its 20th anniversary against a backdrop of ever-evolving threats to global security.

In the face of ever-changing threats to global security, International Security Expo is returning to London from 27-28 September. The market-leading security event is renowned for providing the critical link between government, industry, academia and the entire end user community, enabling security professionals from around the globe to strengthen their relationships and ensure they are adequately prepared to take on current and future challenges.

International security buyers, specifiers and decision-makers will reunite in London to learn, network and source the next generation of security solutions.

With registration now open, senior security buyers and decision-makers from leading organisations such as KPMG, Gatwick Airport, IBM, BAE Systems, Bank of England, British Airways, Ministry of Defence, United States Senate, BMW, AstraZeneca, Microsoft, JPMorgan Chase & Co and Transport for London have already registered to attend, joining thousands of vetted international visitors looking to source the latest security products and solutions for Government, CNI, major events, law enforcement and more.

They will join more than 350 international companies that will spotlight their latest innovative products and solutions. This includes the likes of Audax Global Solutions, APSTEC Systems, Astrophysics, Gallagher Security, HS Security Group, Leidos, LINEV Systems UK Ltd, LiveLink Aerospace, Mitie, Nuctech, Pitagone, Rapiscan Systems, Rohde & Schwarz, Smiths Detection, Vaylia and Varex.

A hotbed of innovation

Demonstrating the latest iteration of products and solutions available on the security market, Audax Global Solutions returns for its 13th year at International Security Expo. The company, which has supplied its world-leading body worn cameras to UK and International Police Forces, NHS Hospitals, UK Councils for Parking and Civil Environment and more will showcase its Body Worn Video (BWV) technology.

Meanwhile, fellow exhibitor Gallagher Security will demonstrate its CAPSS-certified and CPNI-approved access control, perimeter and intruder detection solutions listed across all three sections of the Catalogue for Security Equipment (CSE). This includes Command Centre, its award-winning site management software, and its government-approved controller, readers and electronic perimeter intrusion detection system.

Elsewhere, Smiths Detection will demonstrate how it is advancing the new era of digitised, data-driven security amid ever-changing industry trends across a range of sectors. For example, in aviation, adjusting to post-pandemic life has seen airports need to deploy technologies to overcome staff operator shortages, assist the manual operator burden by removing guesswork and create a more seamless flow of passengers through security, bags through checkpoints and air cargo goods onto planes.

By utilising the power of AI for automatic detection, remote screening, CT technology and open architecture, airports can reduce the need for manual processes, enhance operational efficiency and above all else, improve security. The company will showcase how it can help a range of sectors – from aviation to ports and borders – address these challenges and safeguard both people and environments.

With product categories ranging from Screening and Scanning; CCTV and Surveillance; Perimeter Protection; Hostile Vehicle Mitigation; Intruder Detection and Monitoring and Access Control and Biometrics, attendees are guaranteed to find the solutions to their challenges as well as being inspired by a hotbed of product launches revealed live at the show.

Take Gotcha (ApricoTech), for example. The exhibitor will showcase its computer-vision based technology that detects micro-emotions through the analysis of human facial behaviour. T3K.AI will demonstrate its Law Enforcement Analysis Platform (LEAP) which supports investigators and forensic analysts by quickly analysing data from smartphones and other sources, pinpointing relevant data and helping to focus the investigation. It provides an instant and easy-to-understand overview of risk potentials, helping to prioritise cases.

Specialist Zones provide deep dive into sector challenges

In addition to a hotbed of innovation displayed on the show floor, specialist zones will provide a deep dive into specific sector challenges. Highlighting its long history of Government support for the event, the specialist Government Zone will return to host the likes of Joint Security and Resilience Centre (JSaRC), Counter Terror Policing, British Transport Police, National Counter Terrorism Security Office, UK Defence & Security Exports (UKDSE), Border Force and Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA).

In addition, zones including The Perimeter Protection Zone, in association with the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) and supported by Perimeter Security Suppliers Association (PSSA); International Risk & Resilience Zone and Drone & Counter-UAV Zone, in association with the ADS Drone Platform and Counter-Drone (DPAC) will welcome specialist companies ready to tackle every security threat.

A chance to gain exclusive insights from leading experts

Pulling in the crowds, the event’s free-of-charge and CPD-certified educational programme will once again deliver the latest insights, analysis and invaluable perspectives from world-leading security, law enforcement and risk and resilience experts who will come together to discuss mitigation strategies, best practices and high-level policy.

Three dedicated theatres including the Global Counter Terror & Serious and Organised Crime Summit; International Security Conference and International Risk and Resilience Conference will bring world-renowned speakers and acclaimed global security leaders to discuss the latest security topics, threats and challenges.

Coupled with its long history of Government support, a carefully curated Advisory Council made up of the most credible Government, industry and leading academic stakeholders return to ensure this year’s International Security Expo accurately reflects the security industry and covers the full spectrum of security trends. An impressive 65 industry experts sit on this panel, including new members Anna-Liisa Tampuu, Co-Chair of the Inclusive Security Special Interest Group, The Security Institute; Satia Rai, Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, IPSA; Letitia Emeana, Head of Security at Unilever and Chairwoman of the UK ASIS Chapter and Beena Chester, Director of Business Engagement, Resilience First.
