Countering global threats: Security & Counter Terror Expo returns to London next May bringing security professionals from across the world to the UK

In May 2017 Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX), the UK’s leading national security event for private and public sector security professionals, will return with a comprehensive programme designed to keep attendees one step ahead of those intent on carrying out attacks. Alongside its exhibition, experts from across the globe, including representatives from NATO, Europol and Metropolitan Police, will explore the latest strategies to prevent, protect and prepare for future attacks.

Bob Broadhurst, former Gold Command for the Metropolitan Police Service during the London Olympic Games, continues in his role as a special adviser to the event. He commented: “The threat of terror attacks being carried out is high and will remain so for the foreseeable future. ISIS continues to be a huge issue globally and we’ve seen first-hand the danger it poses, particularly in mainland Europe. Importantly, the nature of these potential acts is constantly changing and we are seeing more ‘lone wolf’ incidents, which are incredibly hard to prevent.

“SCTX is an invaluable platform that helps security professionals prepare for and counter future attacks. The innovations on display, be it drones, surveillance or CBRN technology, coupled with the strategy sessions, make it a must attend event for anyone who has a vested interest in protecting civilians, businesses or assets.”

Taking place at Olympia, London from 3-4 May 2017, SCTX remains the only event that unites security professionals from all four corners of the world. Working in partnership with the Department for International Trade (formerly UKTI), the event is expected to welcome a record number of delegations               , building upon the 10,000-plus visitors who attended in 2016 from more than 100 countries – including France, Germany, Japan, Spain, Italy, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, UAE, Canada and the US.

The two-day event, aligned with the Home Office’s seven security capabilities, will showcase the latest innovations from more than 350 global specialists. Visitors to SCTX 2017 will find a plethora of new technologies, equipment and services designed to assist critical national infrastructure protection, border control, cyber security, major events, offender management, policing and counter terrorism, and the emergency services.

Alongside the established World Counter Terror Congress, Critical National Infrastructure & Business Resilience and Cyber Threat Intelligence conference streams, the hugely popular Advanced Technologies Live demonstration area will return, while the Policing Zone will provide law enforcement professionals with a one-stop-shop of new solutions.
