Leeds businesses champion region at Europe’s biggest security event

The Security Event

The largest security event in Europe is making its triumphant return to the NEC this April, with five businesses flying the flag for Leeds at the prestigious show.

Held between 30 April & 2nd May, The Security Event aims to educate smaller businesses and industry professionals in all forms of security including; public safety, the security skills gap, cyber security and creating a safe working environment to name a few.

One of those exhibiting at the event is Stourton-based business Professional Security UK. Established in 2005, the company works with over 150,000 security professionals nationwide to keep people, places and property safe. During the pandemic, the company provided Covid Hotel Support Officers.

Martin Leeder, Guarding and Events Director at Professional Security UK said: “As the UK’s No.1 provider of security to the Hospitality and Leisure sector across the UK, we have the benefit of looking at the Guarding and Events sector through a different lens.

“Our connected and transformative security solutions are driving higher standards across multiple sectors including retail, transport, events, and local government. We are based in Leeds, however, have the operational capability to deploy nationally and directly with no subcontracted labour. We do this whilst maintaining a strong local presence.

Martin added: “Attending The Security Event gives us the perfect opportunity to network with those already in our industry and more importantly, create valuable leads that will help us grow our business.”

More than 14,000 visitors are expected to attend the three day event, which also offers seminars delivered by security experts, product demonstrations and will host the regional qualifiers of the World Skills competition.

Tristan Norman, Group Event Director of the Nineteen Group, added: “This year sees the show return bigger and better than ever before, but that wouldn’t be possible without our incredible exhibitors. Technology is developing at a rapid rate, so it’s really important that businesses owners, decision makers and end users get the chance to see those advancements in person.

“We’re thrilled that nearly every region across the UK is represented at the show, with smaller independent businesses getting the chance to rub shoulders with industry giants.

“The future of this sector is incredibly exciting and we even have some of the best young talent on display at the World Skills competition. There really hasn’t been a better time to work in security”.

Other Leeds businesses attending include: Inventry, Advancis Software & Services, Millbeck Communications Ltd, and CCTV Direct.

The Security Event is open to all security professionals working in the commercial and residential market, and students of undergraduate level and above on relevant courses of study are welcome to attend the show.
