International Cyber Expo to launch this December
19 March 2020
Nineteen has announced the launch of International Cyber Expo 2020 (ICE2020), a dedicated global event uniting the worlds of cyber and physical security by co-locating with International Security Expo (ISE) on 2-3 December 2020 at London Olympia.
International Security Expo is described as the global premier event for government and end users within the counter terrorism and security space, attracting over 14,000+ vetted visitors, from over 115+ countries including 65+ hosted country delegations.
In the last edition of the event 37% of the entire ISE audience stated that ‘Cyber’ was one of their top priorities. Whilst the show already had a ‘Cyber Security Zone’ supported by ADS & Tech UK this large increase in interest in cyber coupled with the huge growth experienced by the industry as a whole, in terms of new companies and exports specifically gave organisers confidence coupled with feedback from existing exhibitors to give this community its own dedicated global event.
Tristan Norman, group exhibition director at Nineteen Group, said: "There is no hiding from the increasing prominence of cyber security within the traditional physical security realm. With over 5342* visitors attending ISE to seek out suppliers and education specifically within cyber security."
He continued: "There is a large correlation between our audience who are interested in cyber and who also have responsibility for Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) – This is a perfect example of where the frequency of traditional physical security threats, is now superseded by the frequency of cyber-attacks from serious organised crime and terrorism on CNI. A fully blended and comprehensive security approach encompassing cyber and physical security is now paramount."
Peter Jones, group CEO at Nineteen Group, added: "This is another exciting development for Nineteen Group. Cyber has long been a core element of ISE and now with the power of Phoenix Equity partners behind us it gives Nineteen the ability to launch major scale global trade exhibitions that address key needs even in these unprecedented times."
International Cyber Expo will curate both high level content and exhibitors to address the convergence between cyber and physical security as well as other adjacent areas of cyber security which are relevant to an audience anticipated to be in excess of 6000+ international vetted visitors.
