All meetings including the VIP 1-2-1s will be FREE of charge and exclusively available to exhibitors.



The Joint Security and Resilience Centre (JSaRC), the Home Office’s brand new £11m collaboration initiative for government and industry, will be exhibiting at IFSEC for the very first time, within Borders & Infrastructure Expo. JSaRC represents a formidable platform for Government and industry to jointly promote UK expertise and technology to the broader security sector.

Dedicated Networking

Happy people in a meeting

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.

Borders & Infrastructure Theatre

Busy show floor

Catering to the specific needs of Borders & Infrastructure Expo, this theatre will focus on learning and discussion for large scale security issues such as border control, critical national infrastructure, large scale events, and the protection of key strategic assets. Discover best practice specific for the needs of your industry, learn from worst case scenario case studies, and put your questions to the security industry's thought leaders.

It’s a hugely exciting time for IFSEC. Borders & Infrastructure is a significant addition to the overall offering and will provide a focused destination for end users and specifiers from key areas such transport, utilities, central and local government, events spaces, logistics and law enforcement to meet with manufacturers and solutions providers. In view of the existing broad horizon of security products on offer at IFSEC, it will richly enhance IFSEC’s position as the UK and Europe’s industry defining event in the security sector. Borders & Infrastructure will take IFSEC to an even higher level of providing a deeply enriching and strategic security solutions for major customers.

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.


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 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.
