London Olympia will play host to the Security & Counter Terror Expo from 3rd-4th May. The show is expected to attract over 10,000 attendees from over 100 countries and will showcase the capabilities, strategies and intelligence that keep nations, infrastructure, business and people safe.
In attendance will be senior professionals from Government, private sector, critical national infrastructure, military, law enforcement, transport security, border security, security services, major events and emergency services.
The 2017 edition of the event will feature a new Military Zone that will provide attendees with an overview of how the military would respond to mass emergency and large scale security incidents.
This show piece is supported by DSEI (Defence and Security Equipment International), employing its experience in the international defence and security industry. It will cover topics such as explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), the military’s role in counter terrorism, homeland security and intelligence and countering terrorist threat. There will also be a number of live demonstrations highlighting how to detect and respond to a threat.
Commenting on the new Military and Special Ops Workshop, SCTX Special Advisor and former Head of Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) at New Scotland Yard, Richard Walton said: “In my experience, collaboration and partnership between security services is paramount when combating terrorist threats. The sharing of intelligence, expertise and training is something that the UK does particularly well and the Military and Special Ops Workshop provides international professionals with the ideal platform to learn from some of the most prominent figures, while networking with key decision makers.”
David Thompson, Event Director, added: “With global leaders, DSEI working alongside SCTX 2017 we will see the military represented at the event like never before demonstrating how military work within the National Security strategy. Not only will there be an opportunity to meet with MOD but there will also be over 100 countries to engage with in this field.”
