Bringing Together Global Leaders In Property & People For A Safer, Smarter Future

ExCeL London

New for 2024


After over 50 years servicing the global security community, IFSEC will now join co-located events FIREX, Facilities Show and Safety & Health Expo to form Anticipate London.


Anticipate Success


The new event format will continue to have a core focus on topics like access control, video surveillance and perimeter protection but will now also reflect the rapidly-evolving landscape that embraces smart technology and how it impacts with other parts of the built environment.

Welcome to the IFSEC of tomorrow... Anticipate London.

Addressing the BIG topics

Hear from internationally renowned experts, tech innovators and government on how the world of security is changing and how developments like AI will impact upon the future.

For 50 years, IFSEC has been a stalwart in global security. Its new aim is to reflect a shift towards a smarter technology-driven landscape, emphasising seamless integration with a building's other critical systems.

It is the new name for the combined four legacy events of IFSEC, FIREX, the Facilities Show and Safety & Health Expo - now joined together as a comprehensive series under a single new name: Anticipate London.

Visitors will find a wealth of new live content aimed at senior property managers and owners. Our vision is to better interconnect the four legacy events to give visitors a more valuable experience; drawing on the best they have to offer as individual shows, but also giving them the tools to future-proof their systems.

It will widen your marketable audience. As well as your traditional IFSEC visitors, we are encouraging more senior property managers and owners to attend. Plus we’re removing physical and mental barriers throughout the show to allow for greater flow between show-zones leading to increased traffic across the whole hall.

The core products, services and associated live content from the four legacy events will be preserved and enhanced. The plan is not to alienate IFSEC’s fans, but to offer a wider variety of relevant content that takes into account emerging tech, climate and sustainability issues, risk and threat modelling and regulatory change.
In addition, we are bringing awards, more networking opportunities after hours and a greater depth of engagement into the Anticipate London model.
