Networking 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:

ASIS Lounge

IFSEC Park 2

At a huge event like IFSEC International it’s valuable to have a pleasant place to sit, eat, catch-up on emails or have a quiet meeting with clients and colleagues. The Park, sponsored by IDEMIA, is a green and pleasant space for quiet moments away from the hustle and bustle of IFSEC International, transporting you away from the chaos, yet still at the heart of the show floor.
