Transport Security Expo breaks records and raises the bar in 2014
London, 20 November 2013 – Transport Security Expo, the much acclaimed event for industry professionals working to deliver meaningful security in an ever changing threat environment, has once again surpassed all expectation and witnessed a significant increase in both exhibitor and attendee numbers.
The annual event, which brings governmental, law enforcement, security service and industry leaders together to debate issues and develop solutions, saw in excess of a hundred exhibitors display hardware and software to almost four thousand attendees, during its recent two-day gathering at the Olympia Exhibition and Conference Centre in London.
"Transport Security Expo has long held a reputation as the go to event for professionals within the aviation, maritime, supply chain and public transportation industries. In our eleventh consecutive year we are delighted that it retains continued relevance in governmental and industry circles as we continue to fight the menace of global terrorism,” says Peter Jones, Chief Executive, NINETEEN Events.
The deeply troubling issue of cyber security took centre stage. In recent times this has become a major issue for regulators given that cyberspace has become a veritable playground for state actors and criminal gangs intent on inflicting physical and financial harm. Therefore the transport world is reassessing security protocols and beefing up protective measures where appropriate.
Potentially significant change is afoot in how the European aviation goes about ensuring security at the point of delivery and new rules on the vexed issue of liquids about to come into force which prompted more airports than ever to attend the event.
Amongst early highlights for Transport Security Expo 2014:
New dates 2-3 December
Event moves to Olympia’s National Hall - a much larger venue in which to house
this ever growing and highly important event.
A plenary and centerpiece conference incorporating the aviation, maritime, supply
