Every year, visitors come from all over the UK and beyond to The Security Event. Manufacturers, suppliers, installers, integrators, consultants and end users - they are all part of what makes The Security Event unique. 

With a new hosted meetings programme, digital and onsite activities this year, we have made it easy for you to meet the right people. Don't miss the opportunity to join your peers and meet your industry friends.

NEW FOR 2022: Connect+ live


Hosted Meeting Programme


In our ongoing commitment to meet the business needs of security professionals, we are introducing a new and specialised matchmaking service CONNECT+ Live. CONNECT+ Live is a free of charge personalised matchmaking service that match qualified buyers with hand-picked solution providers. Where physical attendance is not possible a series of virtual buyer rooms will be created to enable the most senior buyers the opportunity to connect. 

Matching your business needs

Make the most of your time out of your working hours by using our Connect+ Live. The programme puts the power in your hands, allowing you to fast-track access to the suppliers you want to meet with.


  • Saves time - our specialist team will do the hard work, taking your buying requirements and matching them with our exhibitors.
  • Pre-scheduled meetings - we understand how busy your schedule is, so we will fast-track and give you priority access to suppliers at a time that suits you.
  • Build relationships - Make new invaluable contacts to benchmark and get invaluable insight
