For the first time in more than a decade, the Security Exhibition & Conference – Australasia’s premier event about the security industry – will be held in Melbourne this June.
Expected to attract more than 4500 security industry professionals from more than 20 countries, the 2014 Security Exhibition & Conference is the largest event of its kind in Australasia. “Now in its 29th year, the event is a three-day showcase of the latest business security solutions, live demonstrations and practical education,” said Exhibition Manager, Kylie McRorie.
From June 4-6, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will host a sold-out floor plan featuring more than 160 exhibitors showcasing the latest, widest range of products and solutions available to the security market. Local and international leading service providers – including SCSI, Canon, Pelco Schneider, Intelogix, Sony and Honeywell and Hills – will unveil the latest business security solutions and technology, from access control to surveillance, fire and safety, biometrics and IP networking.
The ever-increasing threat of digital criminality and importance of cyber-security will also be explored in 2014 as part of a world-class seminar series. The seminar program will feature a renowned panel of local and international industry speakers. Visitors will be able to watch live crosses from international security experts such as Microsoft Chief Security Officer, Mike Howard, and IMS Research Senior Research Analyst, Blake Kozak. Attendees can also join industry leaders at a range of educational and social events, including the ASIAL conference and a cocktail reception and gala dinner held in conjunction with ASIAL.
Considered the most popular new initiative at last year’s conference, ‘Security World’, is also a highlight on the 2014 program. Bringing real-world environments onto the show floor, industry experts will host guided tours through Security World allowing visitors to gain an understanding of how different products operate and interact. Biometric intercomms, CCTVs, motion sensors, surveillance software, bollards and perimeter senses will be among the solutions in action from some of the world’s leading security vendors.
The new product showcase will also return this year to provide visitors the chance to see the 10 best security products to hit the Australian market in the last 12 months, including product demonstrations allowing visitors to walk away with hands on, practical product knowledge to use in their own business.
