A New Era of Security: The Comprehensive Showcase at NEC This April


The largest security event in Europe is making its triumphant return to the NEC this April, offering security professionals and experts the chance to see and meet with the world’s leading brands and market leaders for three days of action-packed seminars, product demonstrations and networking events.

Held between 30 April & 2nd May, The Security Event aims to educate smaller businesses and industry professionals in all forms of security including; public safety, cyber security, creating a safe working environment and to name a few.

The show has more than doubled in size, with this year’s offering playing host to more than one thousand exhibitors across forty five thousand square feet of event space. Industry professionals will be granted free access to four major leading co-located industry events – The Fire Safety Event, The Health & Safety Event, the National Cyber Security Show and The Workplace Event.

“National security is very much at the forefront of our minds. House burglaries are increasing year on year in the Midlands, attacks on the region’s frontline NHS workers are on the up and our bus network has become a hot spot of physical and sexual crime – this three-day event could not come at a better time. “Visitors to the show can also hear from counter terrorism experts, learn about action being taken to address the cyber skills gap and the efforts by West Midlands police to tackle violence on transport in the region. These are just a few of the hundreds of demonstrations, seminars and immersive experiences that will take place across the event.”

Tristan Norman, Group Event Director of the Nineteen Group

Seminars and theatres will take place across the week, with key speakers such as counter-terrorism expert Nick Aldworth, who will host a session on Martyn’s Law, and Hatty Giles, Senior Intelligence Analyst and Manager at Mitie who will discuss how open source intelligence can be used to protect both people and property.

“This year sees the show return bigger and better than ever before, combining the best products and brightest talent from across the industry. We’ve also put together a packed seminar programme filled with experts on topics such as AI, DEI, and cybersecurity ready to pass on their advice to guests across three days. 

“With a total of five shows on offer and free tickets available for all, there will be something for everyone, no matter their sector”. 

Tristan Norman, Group Event Director of the Nineteen Group

The Security Event is open to all security professionals working in the commercial and residential market, and students of undergraduate level and above on relevant courses of study are welcome to attend the show.
