Military, Special Ops workshop

Organisers of the Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX), the UK’s annual security event in London, report that the 2017 edition will feature a new Military Zone. It will provide attendees with an overview of how the military would respond to mass emergency and large scale security incidents.

The Zone is supported by the DSEI (Defence and Security Equipment International) show, aimed at the international defence and security industry. The Zone will cover topics such as explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), the military’s role in counter terrorism, homeland security, and intelligence and countering terrorist threat. Live demonstrations will highlight how to detect and respond to a threat.

SCTX Special Advisor and former Head of Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) at New Scotland Yard, Richard Walton said: “In my experience, collaboration and partnership between security services is paramount when combating terrorist threats. The sharing of intelligence, expertise and training is something that the UK does particular well and the Military and Special Ops Workshop provides international professionals with the ideal platform to learn from some of the most prominent figures, while networking with key decision makers.”

David Thompson, Event Director, added: “With global leaders, DSEI working alongside SCTX 2017 we will see the military represented at the event like never before demonstrating how military work within the National Security strategy. Not only will there be an opportunity to meet with MOD but there will also be over 100 countries to engage with in this field.”

SCTX 2017 will be co-located with Ambition – the EPRR Expo – and Forensics Europe Expo. To register to attend visit
