Shipping News Feature

UK – The Transport Security Expo (Transec) being held at London’s Olympia on the 13th and 14th November 2013, marks the events 11th year with a series of developments resulting in exhibitor and delegate numbers hitting record highs. The boost unfortunately reflects renewed concern over aviation, maritime, mass transit and supply chain security. Visitors to the two-day annual event will therefore experience a much-expanded exhibition, conference and workshop programme, very clearly focused on the most pressing issues at hand.

The organisers hosting the two days event have outlined several reasons as to why anyone with a serious interest in any aspect of transport security should attend and, looking through the timetable of events and the list of exhibitors, stakeholders main worry might be whether they will manage to see all that they need to in the time.

Topics under discussion at the conferences range from cyber security through aviation and maritime protection to the development of EU policy on the subject. In addition, internationally recognised experts will get together on stage to help shape the future policy on key security issues through a series of live debates and discussions.

There will be analyses of port security, a review of the current status of the global piracy threat plus detailed discussions on public transport security. With well over a hundred exhibitors and a list of international attendees which currently exceeds three thousand there will be unique chance to see cutting edge technology coupled with the ability to network with professionals in the field, particularly at the specially arranged industry networking reception starting from 1700 on the 13th November in the exhibition hall, where visitors can mingle and meet speakers, delegates and exhibitors.

Transec is also hosting several free to attend technology workshops covering freight and cargo security at terminals and on the road, at sea or in the air. Details of the full workshop programme are available HERE. Due to the nature of the event visitor preregistration is essential and the process can be started HERE.
