The 35th edition of the Security Exhibition & Conference has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and will next take place from 21 – 23 July 2021, in Sydney at the ICC.
Diversified Exhibitions stated in its release, “After many weeks of talking to the industry and consulting with our partners regarding suitable rescheduled dates in Q4, we have made the difficult decision that at this present time, in the interest of the health and safety of our community, cancellation is unavoidable.
What we are experiencing is new territory for everyone, so strong judgement, market knowledge and responsible planning are crucial to managing the situation. As always our aim is to provide a platform for our industry to grow, learn and do business safely. We continue to be grateful to our community – our exhibitors, speakers, partners, visitors and venue in the Security industry for your continued support and patience during this unprecedented time.
It is fortunate that we live in an age of technology that allows us to conduct business remotely and in this new social distancing world we are in, we will look to build on our already established and successful digital communications. These are proven ways to continue a connection with our target audience. Our Security Focus newsletter, dedicated emails and website will continue to be a channel through which the entire industry can connect and share. We have an engaged audience of over 20,000 professionals representing the entire supply chain with real buying power.
We will also look to adapt and introduce new opportunities for connection over the coming months bringing together suppliers and buyers in the Security industry. As a result our existing online presence will be enhanced over the coming weeks.
The present climate is one of uncertainty, but you can be assured that we’re meeting daily and will keep you informed. We will continue to communicate and update you via email for significant changes and announcements. As the situation continues to evolve, you can stay up to date with all the latest information on our dedicated COVID-19 page.
The strength of this community will persevere beyond Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are in this together!”
