IFSEC International strengthens four-decade partnership with NSI

IFSEC International has announced the renewal and strengthening of its partnership with the National Security Inspectorate (NSI), a relationship that has now spanned four decades. Taking place on 19-21 May at ExCeL London, IFSEC International is the global platform for the integrated security industry, attracting over 34,000 attendees including high-quality buyers, industry leaders and hundreds of exhibitors.

IFSEC International also provides an unmatched opportunity to see the latest security technology put to the test, learn directly from world-renowned industry leaders and network with security directors, managers, installers, integrators and distributors from across the globe.

As event partner in 2020, the NSI will be hosting an engaging programme of content spanning both IFSEC International and FIREX International over the course of the three-day event, as well as sharing the latest NSI developments, standards updates and guidance on security and fire safety Best Practice.

The NSI stand is always a major attraction at IFSEC International for those security professionals interested in finding out more about the value of third party certification to their business and clients.

Showcasing technologies and innovations

Richard Jenkins, CEO at the NSI, said: “Over the past 40 years, IFSEC International has established itself as the must-attend event in the calendar. It has evolved over the years by always showcasing the latest technologies and innovations and is as relevant as ever to the tens of thousands of industry professionals who visit every year.”

Jenkins continued: “The NSI’s partnership with IFSEC is quite unique. We’re once again excited to be a part of this progressive event in 2020. Visitors to the event, including approved companies, will have access to the NSI’s focused content programme, bringing the security and fire safety sector up-to-date with the latest guidance on Best Practice and plans for the coming year.”

Essential networking

Simon Young, event director for IFSEC International and FIREX International, responded: “IFSEC International is the essential meeting place for the global security industry and the four-decade partnership between the show and the NSI is testament to its importance. The NSI has always been the perfect fit for IFSEC, and it’s vital for us to continue to build on this positive relationship.”

Young added: “That’s why I’m so delighted to welcome the NSI back to IFSEC International as a show partner for 2020. It’s a pleasure to continue working together. The NSI’s important certification work across electronic and security services means we can push forward to make IFSEC 2020 a more comprehensive show than ever.”

In 2020, IFSEC International will co-locate with Counter-Terror Expo for the first time, offering an unrivalled opportunity for visitors to network and do business with the entire security buying chain.
