Networking at IFSEC

Happy people in a meeting
Laughing people at IFSEC

With over 27,000 security professionals attending IFSEC, plus senior professionals from fire, facilities and safety also attending co-located events, there's no telling what collaborations you may ignite throughout those 3 days at ExCeL London.

There are lots of great spaces around the show where you can meet both exhibitors and fellow visitors to talk business, catch up with old colleagues, or simply relax over a drink:

  • The SSAIB ICEBAR will be a hub for discussions about the issues you face as a business. It will also be a place to secure new business partnerships, catch up with old and new industry peers and relay your day’s highlights to your colleagues. Kick back, relax and chat about the thousands of possibilities revealed to you during your time at IFSEC.
  • Are you an ASIS member or a member of the Security Commonwealth? The ASIS Lounge is exclusively yours. Designed to ignite collaboration, the ASIS Lounge is the perfect place to foster new partnerships with other ASIS and Security Commonwealth members. There is no bigger conversation bigger than security – and IFSEC connects everyone who has a say.
  • The IFSEC VIP Lounge, sponsored by Dell EMC is exclusively available to VIP visitors, enabling you to network with the top names in security. It is also a chance to escape the busy show floor and relax, catch up on emails or hold private meetings.
  • You will find extra seating and snacks at the Market Place. These can be great places for informal meetings over a coffee or a light lunch.
