BSIA renews long-term partnership with IFSEC International

As the UK and Europe’s leading security event, IFSEC International is the global platform for the integrated security industry, attracting over 34,000 attendees (among them high-quality buyers and industry leaders) and hundreds of exhibitors. The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has taken part in the show in a major capacity since the 1980s and will continue to do so into a fourth decade with its dedicated members stand and a proposed BSIA Services Pavilion for 2020.

Mike Reddington, CEO at the BSIA, said: “I can confirm the continuation of our long-standing relationship with IFSEC International. This major event is an opportunity to see security technology put to the test and to find out first-hand from industry leaders across the security spectrum about what’s happening in the industry.”

Reddington added: “This event offers major benefits to our current and prospective members. The BSIA is proud to play an active role in bringing together the industry for positive engagement.”

Simon Young, exhibition director for IFSEC International, responded: “IFSEC International is the meeting place for the global security industry, and we welcome the BSIA’s continued partnership with our show. We’re delighted that we will continue to work together into a new decade. The BSIA is the recognised kitemark of professionalism within the industry and we look forward to working together to make IFSEC 2020 the leading global show for the industry.”
