The Counter Terror Expo (CTX)

What is the Counter Terror Expo about?

Now in its 12th year, the Counter Terror Expo (CTX) is the UK’s leading networking forum for industry, CNI, government and police. It’s where security professionals discover new ideas and technology designed for the fight against terrorism.  In partnership with its sister events the World Counter-Terror Congress, Forensics Europe Expo and Ambition the EPRR Expo, CTX brings together the entire security community under one roof.

CTX 2020

CTX and IFSEC International 2020

For 2020, The Counter Terror Expo moves to ExCeL London on the 19-21 May to co-locate with IFSEC International, creating the UK’s largest security event.  We will be working with our partners at IFSEC, to build a forum that will allow the broader security and protection community to collaborate with our exhibitors and counter-terror stakeholders from police, government and the intelligence community.  In addition, CTX exhibitors and visitors will benefit from the other co-located events taking place at ExCeL including Firex, The Facilities Show and the Safety & Health Expo.
