First stop for ST18: Nottingham

As things so often are, our Security TWENTY series will be much the same next year, but different. For instance the first event of 2018 will be in the same place, the East Midlands Conference Centre and Orchard Hotel on the University of Nottingham campus, but it’s slightly later; on Wednesday, February 21.

Our ST18 sponsors are Hanwha Techwin, Seagate, NetVu, Anixter, Hikvision, IFSEC International and CSL DualCom.

Doors will open at 8.30am for the exhibition when early arrivers can enjoy a bacon butty; but do be aware that they go quick, or at least they did at ST17 Heathrow last month.

Anyway, if you can hold out, there’s mid-morning coffee and biscuits, and a hot buffet lunch. The conference runs between 10am and 1.30pm; and don’t work if the conference runs later, as it does sometimes; the caterers do bring out more food for conference attenders. The exhibition will close before 4pm. As ever, the night before will see a three-course, informal dinner, where exhibitors and their guests can network. Those evenings have raised £50,000 for various charities since ST began in 2013. Thanks to the hundreds of people who have made that possible. If you’d like to attend – it’s free, whether you’re a security manager, installer, consultant, or just someone interested in UK security – email You can just turn up on the day, but registering will help us cater for numbers.

Contact Liz Lloyd also about booking dinner, bed and breakfast places at the hotel next door to the conference centre; and for sponsoring and exhibiting. Email her at or phone: +44 (0)7970 271 786.
