Clarion head to head with IFSEC

A security exhibition is going head to head with IFSEC next year. Clarion Events have launched a new event for security installers. Security Technology Live will run at the NEC, Birmingham in May 2014.

Security Technology Live has been developed through extensive consultation with exhibitors, associations and other stakeholders which has identified demand for a national show at which the security industry can support, service and extend its national networks of 3rd party security installers, integrators, resellers and distributors.

Clarion Events Managing Director Tim Porter said: “We have been working on the idea of a national, overtly channel focused show for the security installer and integrator market for quite some time, to complement the end user focused events in our existing portfolio such as Counter Terror Expo. However now that UBM (the organisers of IFSEC) have decided to move the IFSEC event away from its traditional home in the NEC and relocate it London’s ExCeL next year we believe that the time is now absolutely right to bring Security Technology Live to the market in 2014 to fill the gap in the national calendar created by IFSEC’s shift to the south east.”

Clarion’s security sector shows include the biennual DSEI defence-oriented show next at Docklands from September 10 to 13, and the spring Counter Terror Expo (CTX) at Olympia, west London since its launch five years ago.

Tim Porter said: “London is a great location for our CTX event, which delivers an audience of high end corporate, government, policing and security sector visitors. Everyone we have spoken to across the industry however agrees that the NEC is the best location for a show aimed at the domestic and commercial security installer and integrator community.”

Security Technology Live will run in Halls 6, 7 and 8 at the NEC over three days from May 13 to 15, 2014 and annually after. According to the organisers exhibitor pricing will be lower than at recent editions of IFSEC, and the event will focus on the UK and European distributor, reseller and installer.
