Visitor registration opens for IFSEC International Connect and In-person 2021

Visitor registration is now open for IFSEC International Connect 2021 and IFSEC International in-person! 

IFSEC International Connect 2021 is a brand-new digital event running throughout June. The upcoming IFSEC International in-person will take place at ExCeL London from 12-14 July, providing the first opportunity in over two years for the security industry to unite face-to-face.

“Both events present exciting and timely opportunities for the security industry to reconnect and explore the innovative approaches to security technologies born out of a challenging year,” said Chris Edwards, Group Director at Informa Markets.

“Attendees will get to grips with the very latest industry innovations; from how thermal surveillance cameras can help manage COVID-19 to the evolution of touch-free biometrics, among much more.”

IFSEC Connect 2021: 1-30 June, Online

The month-long online event, running from 1-30 June 2021, will give attendees the opportunity to connect with new and international audiences through video calls and instant messaging, whilst also providing opportunities to browse thousands of security solutions, connect with the security industry’s leading suppliers and access expert-led thought-leadership content from any location.

Attendees can connect with exhibitors and professionals they want to meet using the Connect AI augmented platform, which makes intelligent recommendations based on their online profile. A series of tech-based presentations and thought-leadership panel discussions focusing on the industry’s hottest topics are scheduled throughout June, which will address the future of video surveillance and CCTV, access control, intruder detection, protecting cities and much more.

Over 32,000 visitors from more than 120 countries are expected to attend both events, with over 600 of the security industry’s biggest names also set to take part, including HID, Motorola Solutions, Texecom, CSL, ELAN, Eagle Eye Networks, Ultinous, Adani for Security, alongside key security associations BSIA, SSAIB, the Security Institute, ASIS and FSA.

So much has happened in the security sector over the multiple lockdown periods, with innovative approaches to security technology being rapidly developed and launched into the market. For the first time in over two years, security professionals will be able to physically search, demo and procure the very latest security solutions and meet face-to-face in a safe and secure environment.

IFSEC International in-person will be delivered in line with the industry recognised, and Government approved, Informa AllSecure standard – designed to ensure the safety of all attendees. Informa AllSecure was piloted in September 2020 and approved by the UK Government on 19 November 2020 as a model for running large events safely. It involves several health and safety measures, including deep cleaning, social distancing onsite, staggered arrival times and PPE, including face masks.
