Finally, Clarion Events announced in February that Security Technology Live 2014, scheduled to take place from the 13th to the 15th of May at the NEC in Birmingham, has been postponed. As the European industry is already focused on their participation at Security in Essen this has created significant challenges for a number of current and potential exhibitors, and as a result Clarion have taken the difficult decision to postpone the first edition of Security Technology Live until 2015.
Clarion are able to refund any and all monies paid to date in full should exhibitors wish, or alternatively they are also able to transfer stands to their end-user security event Counter Terror Expo, which takes place from 29-30 April 2014, at Olympia in London.
Dates for Security Technology Live 2015 will be announced in due course and more information about the event can be found here.
