LONDON - The International Security Expo returns to London on 26-27 September 2023, backed by more Government agencies and industry partners than ever before and showcasing the widest range of solutions designed to improve the security and resilience of businesses, people and critical infrastructures.

In the face of ever-changing threats to global security, International Security Expo (ISE) will welcome a high-quality vetted audience of over 10,000 active buyers to London’s Olympia, and will play host to 350+ exhibitors offering the latest security solutions devised by the world's leading suppliers.

The market-leading security event, chaired by former UK Security Minister Admiral Lord West, is once again co-located with International Cyber Expo, which brings an additional 5,000+ visitors who have free and open access across both events.

ISE features an International Delegations Programme attracting buyers from around the world coming to see and source the latest security solutions. Many will join tours around the show floor and also take part in CONNECT+ Live led by 'Hosted Meetings' brand Newbridge, who identify the needs of global buyers in purchase and discovery stages, and connect them with the most suitable exhibitors to have face-to-face meetings at the event.

This year’s Premier Partners include Apstec Systems, Astrophysics, Audax Global Solutions, Gallagher Security, HS Security/ATG Access, Leidos, LINEV Systems UK, Mitie, Pitagone, Rapiscan Systems, Rohde and Schwarz, Smiths Detection Group, Vaylia and Weytec. ISE is also supported by over 50 leading associations and media publications, such as Asis UK, ADS, The Emergency Planning Society, IPSA and The Security Institute.

Live Demonstrations

The event is the most interactive of its kind and will offer live demonstrations throughout both days of the show. British Transport Police will be showcasing a wide range of their equipment and tools including firearms and less lethal devices, the LPCB Live Testing Lab, in association with LPCB, supported by the PSSA and sponsored by Barkers Fencing, will feature professional forced entry specialists who will be put up against a range of physical security products, such as windows, fencing, and doorsets, and Counter-EO UK, CBRN-UK and DPAC will be conducting a series of counter threat scenario-based demonstrations.

A Perimeter Protection Zone, International Risk and Resilience Zone and Drone and Counter UAV Zone will help visitors expand their knowledge in these key areas, with the dedicated SCEG Pavilion also highlighting a number of companies that deliver security in challenging and complex environments on land and at sea. The Government Zone is back bigger than ever in order to accommodate the overwhelming and continued support from UK Government. The larger space will provide a central meeting point for practitioners to network with key Government departments and agencies and find out about the latest projects and plans for the future.

The event boasts an unparalleled line-up of educational content, which offers CPD to all attendees courtesy of The Security Institute. There are three main stages – the International Security Conference, the International Risk and Resilience Conference (in partnership with Resilience First) and the Global Counter Terror and Serious and Organised Crime Summit (supported by Counter Terror Business.) The content is delivered by world-renowned experts from industry, Government and academia with speakers confirmed from Microsoft, FBI, Home Office, Office for Homeland Security, NaCTSO, NCA, UK Civil Aviation Authority, NATO and Cabinet Office. Sessions will look at the implementation of new policies and techniques and provide practical takeaways about how these can be applied. Martyn’s Law, Ukraine, aviation security and diversity are all key themes this year.

Commenting on the event, ISE Group Event Director Rachael Shattock explained: “International Security Expo 2023 will be an unmissable event for global security professionals. The content on Martyn’s Law will ensure visitors are in the best possible position to plan for and understand the legislation. Nowhere else will they benefit from the depth of information delivered by so many of the individuals behind Martyn’s Law, and it’s all for free.”

Former Security Minister and Chair of ISE, Admiral Lord West GCB DSC PC adds: “We are delighted to welcome back hundreds of the industry’s leading brands making ISE the best place to meet innovative global suppliers who can solve all of your security needs. The added value that comes from full access to the co-located International Cyber Expo allows visitors to see the full security picture. We really hope to see you at Olympia this year on 26-27 September.”

ISE is completely free-to-attend, including invitation to the Networking Drinks Reception at the end of Day One.
