IFSEC International Announces Plans for 2021 and New Dates for in-Person Event

IFSEC International, the largest gathering of security professionals, has announced it will now take place from July 12-14, 2021 at ExCeL, London and will be run in line with the industry recognised and Government-approved AllSecure standard, to ensure attendee safety.

Informa Markets group director Chris Edwards stated: “The safety and wellbeing of our attendees and exhibitors is our foremost priority. That's why we've moved the date to summer 2021 and will be looking to operate under the highest possible level of health and safety standards, which Informa AllSecure enables us to do.”

AllSecure was piloted in September 2020 and approved by the UK Government on November 19, 2020 as a model for running large events safely. It involves several health and safety measures, including deep cleaning, social distancing on-site, staggered arrival times and PPE, such as face masks.

In addition, IFSEC International - for which SSAIB are the official installer partner -has also announced plans for a variety of online events, set to take place in June 2021.

Chris added: “While 2020 had its challenges for in-person events, IFSEC International was able to innovate and bring the industry together remotely via online platforms and we're looking to further build on that success in 2021.”

IFSEC International’s online experiences will provide opportunities for audiences to organise live video calls with exhibitors, browse solution providers and products – via an online marketplace – while some of the very latest in tech innovation, industry best practice and thought leadership will be showcased.

Tavcom Training Launches Their First Virtual Classroom Courses

Tavcom Training Launches Their First Virtual Classroom Courses

Tavcom Training is launching the first in a series of virtual classroom training courses to its classroom training portfolio, starting with two fundamental courses: Intruder Alarm System Design BTEC Level 3 and CCTV System Design and Planning BTEC Level 3.

Delivered via Zoom through online interactive lectures and workshops - and guided by the same expert instructors as the classroom courses - learners will have the chance to gain an accredited certification in a live environment, without having to travel.


Andrew Saywell, business development manager for Tavcom Training stated: ‘We understand a lot of our learners come to us for the high standard or training we deliver here at Tavcom, and we wanted to find a way to provide that high standard of classroom learning to the many who can’t travel.

"Our new virtual classroom courses are a crucial solution to this. Delivered by and in partnership with our lead tutors, they are fully interactive and designed to provide professionals with the necessary skills required to carry out the key elements of their job role.

"The launch of our accredited virtual training courses is just one in a series of latest developments that we are implementing in order to increase the accessibility of Tavcom Training courses to learners globally. Now, more than ever, it is easier to gain a worldwide recognised qualification."

Not only will learners interact with the class and ask questions as they would in a classroom, but they can expect to receive all the typical benefits of traditional face-to-face training - including full tutor support, training resources and protected soft copies of the learning material distributed prior to course commencement.

Intruder Alarm System Design BTEC Level 3 is the first course in the portfolio to be delivered virtually. It is an essential course for technical specifiers, sales engineers and consultants who wish to work lawfully within the new legislative guidelines and to determine the risk assessment of each installation.

Learners on the course will be taught the skills required to carry out risk assessments and surveys in accordance with current British and European standards, in combination with design and planning exercises that will introduce all the necessary new grading requirements.

Intruder Alarm System Design is scheduled to take place virtually between February 15-17, 2021 and will cover the following core topics:
