IFSEC moves to London in 2014
UBM Live announced last month that the UK-based Protection & Management Series – including Ifsec International, Firex International, Safety & Health Expo and Facilities Show – will move from Birmingham's NEC to ExCeL London in June 2014.
The decision comes at the end of a 12 month period of research and consultation with stakeholders across all communities, which resulted in overwhelming support for a move to London in 2014. The research concluded that re-locating to the UK capital would ensure the events would continue to be easily accessible for existing visitors as well as allowing the Series to take advantage of London’s status as a global business destination to attract even greater numbers of international attendees: increasingly important to all exhibitors and partners. In addition, ExCeL London, as a leading international venue will enable visitors to circulate between the four events more easily. As visitors’ requirements have changed over recent years, the Series has witnessed more and more visitors wishing to experience all the shows, not just one. The layout of the shows at ExCeL will ensure an enhanced visitor experience, easier navigation and ultimately a better return on their time.
