Buyers and suppliers converge at Forum Events’ Total Security Summit 2019

It’s predicted that the global physical security market will grow in value from $84.1 billion last year to $119.4 billion by 2023. According to analysis from ResearchandMarkets, that’s equivalent to a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 7.3%. What’s more, the electronic access control market will grow from $8.2 billion in 2017 to $13.3 billion by 2023, which is equivalent to growth of 8.53%.

The drivers of this unprecedented demand are myriad, including rising incidents of terror attacks, the deployment of wireless technology in security systems, the increasing use of IP-based cameras for video surveillance, the implementation of mobile-based access control and the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT)-based security systems with cloud computing platforms.

Put simply, there has never been a more challenging and exciting time to be working within the security industry.

It’s also precisely why the Total Security Summit – taking place on 1-2 April at the Radisson Blu Hotel at London Stansted – is a ‘must attend’, both for senior professionals responsible for protecting their organisations and for those companies providing cutting-edge solutions to the market.

The Total Security Summit – for which Risk Xtra is once again the Official Media Partner – is a highly-focused event that brings security professionals together for one-to-one business meetings, interactive seminars and valuable networking opportunities. Throughout two working days, delegates will meet with solution providers who’ll be able to talk through requirements, concerns and obstacles, offering the best advice as well as cost-saving solutions.

Among the areas covered are access control, biometrics, business continuity, risk management, CCTV, fire protection solutions, IP/IT security, lone worker security, loss prevention solutions, perimeter security, Security Industry Authority-focused training and staff screening.

Attendees will also learn about the latest security trends in educational seminar sessions led by some of the industry’s leading lights. The education programme includes the following topics and speakers:

Counter-Terrorism: Top Tips for Business

Chris Phillips (managing director, The International Protect and Prepare Security Office)
