IFSEC & FIREX International unveil exciting plans for 2016

With the current UK threat from international terrorism placed at severe and the national head of counter-terrorism recently warning that the UK is facing the threat of ‘enormous and spectacular attacks’ from Islamic State on western lifestyles, it is clear that those working within the security industries are under immense pressure to understand these threats and use the resources and technology available to minimise the impact of any terrorist actions.

Taking place from 21-23 June, IFSEC International  and FIREX International will once again bring together the leading suppliers, associations, thought leaders and businesses working within the counter terrorism, security and life safety industries from across the UK and beyond for three days at London’s ExCeL this summer.

The Professional Development Zone, hosting a series of free to attend seminars and panel debates, will feature numerous sessions that will explore issues around counter terrorism and keeping urban populations safe. A Highlight across the three days includes a case study from Joe Foster at Safety Awareness Limited on managing the security for the Rugby World Cup 2015, this included security for not just the stadiums but the players, hotels and training grounds.

Additionally, sessions on transport and retail security along with a look at the communication barriers between police and the security industry will touch on the very real threat of terrorism and will look at current trends within these sectors and how security professionals can future proof new threats.

The IFSEC Smart Zone, new for 2016, will host a dedicated Home Automation Zone where visitors will be able to test and trial the latest technology, speak to the experts within this field and source the right solution for their business, within the industry already involved include Honeywell Building Solutions, Control4, Habitech, CIE-Group, to name a few and the whole zone will be supported by KNX UK.

The IFSEC Smart Zone will also hold free to attend seminar sessions delivered by a range of leading experts and will concentrate on key areas such as the Internet Of Things, systems integration, business intelligence, building information management, cyber security along with a series of relevant case studies.


Peter Selby, Regional General Manager Honeywell Building Solutions, UK and the Nordics, who will be exhibiting within the IFSEC Smart Zone has said: “With a focus on new industry trends and innovations, IFSEC International provides a great opportunity to showcase Honeywell’s latest technology and integrated security portfolio to an international multi-industry audience.
