IFSEC show from 12th to 15th of May

09 May, 2008
With over 800 exhibitors and a seminar programme covering every major area of the security industry, the IFSEC conference and exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham next week is a must for all security professionals.
The demand for effective security both in the private sector and public service companies, continues to increase at a staggering rate and the technology needed to meet that demand is changing on a daily basis.

To keep up with what's new in the industry and plan your own future security budgets and requirements, attendance to the major security show in the UK is a must. This year, the exhibition features product areas relating to different industry areas and includes RFID and Smart Cards, Access Control, Counter Terrorism, Intruder Alarms, Guarding and CCTV Surveillance. As in previous years, the exhibition also runs alongside similar smaller events for the Fire, Safety and Facilities Management industries in adjacent halls.

Other innovative aspects of the show include demonstrations of the use of smart cards and how they can be used in a variety of applications and the "IP Innovation Centre" designed to provide educational insight into the use of IP technologies in security. With the majority of existing surveillance installations still being analogue but the future undoubtedly being digital, this is a good opportunity to see how the technology can work for you and how you can make the step from legacy systems into the future of true security system integration and smart surveillance applications.

Running alongside the exhibition throughout the event is a comprehensive seminar programme featuring technical background information, case studies showing state of the art installations and even a search dog demonstration. The seminar series covers all aspects of the industry from training through to guarding services, surveillance, access control and intruder alarms.

I'll be there throughout the show interviewing key people driving the changes in security technology and providing reports on the show.
