Whilst Borders & Infrastructure Expo will focus on large-scale security issues, IFSEC International will continue to provide the latest products, solutions and seminars addressing all other elements of the security industry, including; access control, intruder alarms, integrated security, video surveillance and much more. Providing you with the complete security offering from the outer perimeter of a building or asset through to the IT network within.

Why are we launching Borders & Infrastructure?

The main driver behind the introduction of Borders & Infrastructure is a realisation that now a significant section of the visitors at IFSEC, represent major vertical sector end users, with specific interests, projects and requirements. These sectors include the safeguarding and protection of transport, utilities, national infrastructure, border and immigration control, central & local government and law enforcement. Areas which keep the country functioning and in constant need of state of the art security systems and protection measures, all managed with an unrelenting focus.  

The objective of IFSEC Borders & Infrastructure therefore, is to provide these visitors with an IFSEC destination of their own. They’re already visiting IFSEC on a regular basis and in significant numbers so a focused area within the show, will provide a far greater, relevant and rewarding experience to both visitors and exhibitors.


Why visit Borders & Infrastructure Expo?

With the estimated annual growth rate of the global physical security market projected at 9.98% each year by 2020, the budget allocation for implementing security systems is bigger than ever. Coupled with increasing incidence of terrorists attacks, governments have increased budget allocation for implementing physical security systems and solutions in order to ensure security of their premises, assets, and people.

Find out more about the Drone Zone

The Drone Zone

For IFSEC 2017, the highly successful Drone Zone will be hosted within Borders & Infrastructure. Not only are the UAV products very engaging in a live environment, but they are extremely topical at the present time. The Drone Zone will feature live demonstrations, the latest in innovations from UAV manufacturers, and insight on how to both utilise drones in your security strategy and protect against them.


Product Testing

Borders & Infrastructure will feature live product demonstration and testing areas hosted by our colleagues at BRE Global. BRE Global carries out rigorous testing on a range of security products for government and will be looking at areas such as security fence testing as active daily demonstrations live on the show floor.


Dedicated Networking

In order to cater to the specific interests of the Borders & Infrastructure visitor groups, the exhibition will feature a dedicated area for networking and informal meetings. The needs of such visitors are very different to the traditional security installers, therefore a dedicated area will enable specific peer to peer meetings and conversations away from the more traditionally trafficked IFSEC areas.


VIP Meeting Service

To maximise your ROI we will be hosting a FREE dedicated Meetings Service for all exhibitors which will also include a high level VIP meetings programme for industry influencers from the UK and key overseas markets. This will include matching visitors requirements with exhibitors whereby projects and solutions can be discussed on a 1-2-1 basis. All meetings including the VIP 1-2-1s will be FREE of charge and exclusively available to exhibitors.
