Our pick of 2019’s best security events
The security industry is evolving rapidly, with innovative technologies, products and solutions being developed in response to the world’s ever-changing risks. To maintain our position at the forefront of the security industry, ensure we keep up to date with the latest challenges and continue to develop integrated solutions with strategic partners to tackle emerging threats, we exhibit at and attend a range of events throughout the year.
Here are a few events for your diary in 2019, which we believe security professionals cannot afford to miss. We hope to see you at one of the below but, if you’re unable to attend and wish to discuss your entrance control requirements, or arrange a live demonstration of our security turnstile products at our head office in West London, please contact our team on +44 (0)20 8890 5550 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Intersec 2019, Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre
20 – 22 January 2019
Stand F09, Sheikh Saeed Hall 3
At this year’s Intersec – the world’s leading trade fair for security, safety and fire protection – our team will demonstrate the capabilities of the Fastlane Glasswing Compact, Glassgate 200 and Door Detective Plus, showing how our products simultaneously provide the required level of security whilst also complementing every high-spec, elegant environment. Our latest integration will also be on display, the Fastlane Glassgate 400 with integrated MorphoWave™ Compact, the latest addition to the biometric access control range by IDEMIA.
This new touchless 3D fingerprint reader allows authorised users to gain access with a simple wave of the hand, providing the latest in frictionless entrance control. Fusing these technologies results in little or no dwell time for users, with no need for them to touch anything to gain access.
Our range continues to prove popular in the Middle East due to the elegant design and reliability of the units, and we’re really proud that our products secure some of this region’s most notable buildings, including The Aldar HQ Building in Abu Dhabi. We look forward to further strengthening partnerships in this market in 2019 and beyond.
Security & Counter Terror Expo, London Olympia

The Security & Counter Terror Expo is at the forefront of national security events in the UK. More than 10,000 senior level visitors gather at this two-day showcase for immersive learning, networking and exploration of the latest technologies, strategies and intelligence to help keep nations, infrastructure, business and people safe.

Security Show, Tokyo International Exhibition Centre
5 – 8 March 2019
With expected visitor numbers of 72,000, the Security Show is Japan’s most sizeable Security and Safety exhibition. 620 exhibitors will showcase products, technology, systems and services spanning surveillance, information security systems and access control, to protect offices, retail, public facilities and homes from crimes, information leakage and other risks. Exhibition zones will cover areas such as general security, disaster prevention and image processing technology, appealing to a diverse demographic of visitor, from system engineers to civil defence officials.
You’ll find our products on the Yonei stand. This year we are demonstrating the Glassgate 155, which is based on the design of the popular Glassgate 150 model but offers additional security and lane width options, and the Door Detective Plus, providing additional door security with Ethernet integration.
ISEC, Dublin, Citywest Hotel, Conference, Leisure and Golf Resort
27 – 28 March 2019
ISEC is Ireland’s biennial event for the Irish security and fire industry, attracting 1200 plus visitors including security and fire installers, facility managers, electrical contractors, consultants and engineers, building and procurement managers.
Winner of the Good Design Award in 2013 and one of our best-selling products, the Glassgate 300 will be on stand at ISEC. Developed in response to demand from our customers for a ‘light’ looking, yet higher security turnstile, the Glassgate 300 is a dual swing barrier, featuring a modern stainless steel enclosure and is available with glass barriers in four different heights, making it suitable for every security application. This exceptionally compact footprint model provides a clear physical and psychological deterrent for unauthorised users, yet still maintains streamlined styling, which is vital to satisfy the design needs of our customers.
Intersec Saudi Arabia, Jeddah
14 – 16 April
For many years we have exhibited at Intersec Dubai and, in April this year, we will have a stand at Intersec Saudi Arabia for the third year. Intersec Saudi Arabia is the leading safety, security and fire protection trade fair in the region. With 170+ exhibitors and visitors numbering over 6,000, the show is back for a third year due to the high number of trade visitors from Jeddah in previous years at Intersec Dubai, and additionally to maximise the growth potential of the security sector in Saudi Arabia due to the rise in new infrastructure projects and the geo-political situation.
This year we’re introducing this market to our latest product integration – the Glassgate 400 with integrated MorphoWave™ Compact – which, given our knowledge of the specific pedestrian entrance control requirements of this region, we expect to be well received.
The Security Event, NEC, Birmingham
9 – 11 April
This is a new addition to the security events calendar. This UK focused security professional and installer exhibition will be held for the first time at the NEC in Birmingham and aims to create a dedicated platform which enables exhibitors, installers and end users alike to reconnect.
Spearheaded by ten of the industry’s major players, and powered by Security Essen, The Security Event will host around 100 of the world’s leading security brands and attract thousands of attendees over the three days.
We’ll be announcing which of our products we’ll be demonstrating here soon, so watch this space!

Last year, ASIS International changed the name of its annual security conference from the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits to the Global Security Exchange (GSX), to encourage even greater knowledge sharing across verticals and between security solutions providers. Taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Centre, this year’s event looks set to provide visitors and exhibitors with a best-in-class immersive environment for education, networking and business building.

SiX, EventCity, Manchester

Another new addition for 2019 is the inaugural SiX event, aimed at the security installer and system integrator. Faced with changes in the market, with the shift from hardware to software-based solutions as well as the impact of IoT technologies, the vision for SiX is to help installers and integrators learn more about the potential of new technologies and to ensure they are updated with relevant best practices.
