The Security Event, The Fire Safety Event and The Door & Hardware Federation Announce New Partnership

Taking place from 7th – 9th September 2021 at the UK fire & security industry’s iconic home, the NEC Birmingham, The Security Event and The Fire Safety Event have rapidly grown in popularity becoming the premier national security and fire safety events in the UK for the commercial, enterprise and domestic markets.

As a supporting partner, the Door & Hardware Federation will be hosting their own stand welcoming new and existing members discussing how their support can help businesses achieve compliance through their technical advice and training, continually raising the standards of the industry.

The Security Event and The Fire Safety Event continue to attract significant interest and support marking a monumental shift in the UK fire & security event landscape. Hosted at the UK’s best-connected venue, The NEC Birmingham, the events are easily accessible to the entire UK fire & security sector, firmly establishing them as the industry’s favourite events.

Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens, Head of Commercial Operations commented “ DHF is extremely pleased to have its inaugural outing this year at The Security Event and The Fire Safety Event.  DHF has, for many years, made or continues to strive for, change and awareness in these sectors.  The creation of TS 007 for the locks and building hardware sector has made selecting safe products easy for the consumer and the work we continue to do to strive for third party certified fire doors is ongoing.  It offers the perfect platform to continue our clarion call.”

Tristan Norman, Group Exhibition Director comments: “We are thrilled to be working with The DHF as an event partner for The Security and Fire Safety Events. We are passionate about championing professionalism and raising standards within the UK fire & security sector.  Together we can continually raise standards through collaboration, debate, learning and sharing best practice within the sector.”

Norman concludes “the wait is nearly over to reunite the UK fire & security communities at the NEC Birmingham in September.  Collectively hosting 300+ leading businesses showcasing world-leading innovations, technologies, solutions and services, we’re fully committed to the protection of people, places and assets.”
