Dear Reader,

With Brexit postponed to the end of October, it looks like we will enjoy at least one more IFSEC in London without leaving the EU. From my point of view, whatever happens, London will stay in the middle of Europe and IFSEC will probably still play a vital role in the European security industry. This year's show, IFSEC International 2019, will take place at 18-20 June at Excel London, and the event promises to bring over 27,000 visitors together with over than 500 exhibitors, showcasing more than 10,000 security products.

The organisers have planned a world-class program of expert-led seminars, case studies and presentations and a bespoke networking experience. The aim of the show ist that visitors can not only source products, but also see for themselves exactly how effective they are. Exhibitors can prove the efficacy of their products in live demonstrations and dedicated testing zones.

IFSEC’s ‘Show Me How’ feature gives you the chance to see on-stand product demonstrations, posing your questions directly to the dedicated technicians behind the tech. This gives you a unique opportunity to learn how products are installed, operated and maintained, ensuring your security strategy – whether you’re an installer, integrator, consultant or end-user – is based on practical knowledge.

In the following weeks we will keep you updated on what will happen at IFSEC on our website and in the following newsletters.

Best regards

Heiko Baumgartner for GIT's safety and security team
