Antiquities forum at Expo

The International Arts & Antiquities Security Forum (IAASF) will co-locate their second annual conference, on the protection of arts, antiquities and cultural heritage, at UK Security Expo 2017.

The first IAASF ran at the Baltic, Gateshead, in November 2016; the second was due to be held in central London in late November. It’s now moved under the umbrella of the UK Security Expo, which runs at London Olympia, pictured, on November 29 and 30.

Andy Davis, Chair of the IAASF says: “The IAASF event was created to provide a forum where those involved in, or with a passion for the cultural, art or antiquities sectors can learn about the security threats and risks that exist but also sensible steps that can be taken to provide security and protection. We are pleased to be co-locating the conference at UK Security Expo this year as it gives delegates the chance to also experience the latest security innovations and services that the wider show has to offer.”

This year’s IAASF Conference theme is ‘Protecting Cultural Venues from Adversarial Risks’ and will include discussions and presentations. Tickets are available at

Peter Jones, CEO, UK Security Expo comments “Over two days, the UK Security Expo conference programme covers every aspect of counter-terrorism and security with over 70 hours of educational content. We are delighted to have confirmed the participation of the IAASF Forum, which brings a new sector and an important network of professionals into the show for the first time. The extensive IAASF conference programme will deliver high-level insight into the key issues for security, alongside practical advice, best practice insight and solutions to the challenges ahead. The conference is an integral part of the offering at UK Security Expo and we look forward to continuing the relationship with the IAASF in the future.”
