You’re invited: Security Exhibition & Conference 2017

03 Jul 17

Sydney’s International Convention Centre will host Australia’s premier security industry event, the Security Exhibition & Conference on July 26-28. It promises to bring technology, strategy, networking and thought leadership together to showcase the latest innovations in security.

The free-to-attend Exhibition and paid Conference provides an opportunity to discover physical and electronic security, including access control; surveillance, alarms; home automation; IP and networking; cyber security; locks and hardware; and vehicle security.

Some of the world's leading security products will be on show, such as Bosch CCTV and Intrusion by Electrocraft, the Dedrone DroneTracker by Criterion Solutions, and the Invixium biometrics range from Smart Identity.

The 32nd annual Security Exhibition & Conference will feature more than 135 exhibits, a renowned education program and a gala dinner organised by Diversified Communications Australia and the Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL). 

ASIAL CEO Bryan De Caires says the Conference is looking to be the must-attend security event again this year following the sell-out in 2016.

“There will be an outstanding line-up of speakers as well as live demonstrations, featuring an exciting and diverse range of technologies and equipment, from a host of leading suppliers.”

The ASIAL Conference will also feature sessions from local and international speakers, including Neil Campbell from Telstra, Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman (ASBFEO) Kate Carnell, Vidi Labs managing director Vlado Damjanovski and many more.

They will be discussing a range of technical challenges such as cyber hacking, terrorism and organisational resilience.

To be held on July 27th, the Gala Dinner brings its own sense of celebration, as it will recognise the security industry’s achievements from the year. It will also host the Best New Product Awards.

Melissa Clendinen, Security 2017 event manager, says it’s great to see the excitement around the event returning to Sydney after being held in Melbourne for the past three years.
