The IFSEC International, the essential security and safety trade show has been rescheduled. The event will be held online June 1st to June 30th, 2021. 


IFSEC presents up-to-date information on the newest products, emerging trends and best practices in the safety and security industry, and access control. You will see established and emerging companies in the industry present their best products and services. The international trade fair has been a linchpin right from the start in 1988 and today shares the stage with three other influential events – Facilities Show, FIREX International and Safety & Health Expo (SHExpo).

What trade visitors come to see at the exhibition ground sis the incredible variety of products - CCTV, security systems, video surveillance systems, alarm systems, internet security systems, security locks, biometrics and fire protection systems. But IFSEC is more than just a marketplace. It’s a place of know-how as seen through the expert education seminars and case-studies that place all these new technologies in their context.


IFSEC is an annual event of great importance that is held in London, UK around late spring, early summer – the months of May and June have been known to be when the event happens. Editions last for three days in total and are the effort of official organiser UBM Live.

The modern ExCeL London is quite naturally the host venue and entrance is given only to trade visitors. The working hours are from 10:00 am in the morning until 17:00 pm in the afternoon, but those are subject to change once the official program is finalised. The easiest way to reach ExCeL London is to drive, but if you don’t have a car there are other ways. London is the city of trains so you have the metro, the DLR and the overground train system to choose from.
