IFSEC 2019: By the industry, for the industry

IFSEC, co-created and co-promoted in partnership with over 40 of the security industry’s important associations and trade magazines.
IFSEC 2019 continues with its strategy of ‘for the industry, by the industry’, to create the security industry hub for the year, delivered hand in hand with the BSIA, the industry’s key association.


The 2019 event is proud to be driven forward by its partnerships with the SSAIB, NSI, FSA, ASIS UK, Association of Security Consultants and the Security Institute, as well as Professional Security Magazine, IFSEC’s core security media partner. Plus with over 40 trade media magazines supporting, including Detektor, Counter Terror Business, GIT Security Magazine, Professional Security Installer and more, in the run up to IFSEC you can’t move for hearing what’s happening at the event!


It’s why you can expect to see over 27,000 installers, integrators, resellers, consultants, end users and manufacturers, who will all be discovering security solutions at IFSEC 2019.


IFSEC is also proud to host the UK Government Pavilion, which includes representation from the Home Office/JSaRC, Department of International Trade, Defence & Security Organisation and the British Transport Police.
It is with these partners and influencers that we co-create key features to build the security event that the industry needs. At IFSEC you’ll find:
  • The Keynote Arena: High impact, stylish and the centrepiece of the show, featuring inspirational and transformational presentations from leading security influencers
  • The Converged Security Centre hosted by Vidsys: See converged security information management (CSIM) in real time
  • The LPCB Attack Testing Zone: Returning to showcase the very best in physical and perimeter security solutions as demonstrated through live tests by our partners from BRE Global/LPCB
  • The Future of Security Theatre: Hosted by our education partner, Tavcom, this theatre features insights about future security solutions

All this combines to make the IFSEC International experience entirely unique. It’s the global hub for all the energy and innovation of the security industry, with three days of focused and productive conversation at the industry’s cutting edge. The event remains fixed on the future. It demonstrates to visitors where the biggest developments are happening and helps them set their security agenda for the year ahead.

At IFSEC International, the industry and the market are drawn together by a shared aim of meeting big security challenges and making the world a safer place.
