More than 30 international delegations set for security expo


The Transport Security Expo taking place from 2-3 December at Olympia in London is set to welcome more than 30 international delegations from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America.

This year’s expo will include delegates from four new foreign governments; widening the opportunity for increasing knowledge and strengthening global defences against the threat of terrorist attacks.

The organisers of Transport Security Expo are working with the Home Office and the UK Trade & Industry Defence & Security Organisation (UKTI DSO) to promote the expo to foreign governments as a valuable platform for learning more about counter-terrorism techniques and systems, and for meeting and doing business with the developers and manufacturers of these solutions.

The DSO already promotes the UK’s expertise and innovation in counter-terrorism: the UK is widely recognised as a centre of excellence in the transport security sectors.

One of the main objectives of Transport Security Expo is to match the international delegates with relevant, useful exhibitors.

With representatives from companies that specialise in aviation, maritime and rail security, as well as secure transportation, major events transport security and border security, the international delegates will have the opportunity to spend time talking to people from the areas that could be of most use to them.

Nineteen Events is planning and organising the expo and chief executive officer, Peter Jones, says: “The UK is renowned throughout the world as having some of the world’s best security industry specialists and  companies.

“The Transport Security Expo is a perfect platform to exemplify just how much demand there is for this expertise outside the UK and how this presents numerous export opportunities.”

Now in its 13th year, Transport Security Expo is seen as the main global platform that brings government, industry & academia together to counter the threat against transportation networks.

It’s aim is to bring delegates up to date with regulations, developments and the latest technologies available to tackle terrorist threats.

The expo features a large-scale exhibition with over 200 of the leading manufacturers, systems integrators and SMEs supplying to the global transport security sector, as well as free-to-attend conferences and security innovation seminars.
