2021 Event Update
Security and Integrate Co-location
The 35th edition of the Security Exhibition & Conference in 2021 will for the first time ever, be co-located with our sister show, Integrate, Australia’s premier audio visual and integration exhibition. The co-location is set to significantly enhance Australia’s leading Security and AV and Integration events, becoming the only exhibition in Australia to service both industries. For further details on the co-location please read the full statement here.

Thursday 22nd 9:30 – 17:30
Friday 23rd 9:30 – 15:30
I’m an exhibitor based in Australia – what happens now?
The Security event dates and location are unaffected by the co-location with Integrate, and all existing bookings remain. The most significant change for existing 2021 exhibitors is an alteration in the floorplan, which may therefore impact your existing position and/or stand number. If you have not already been contacted by your Client Manager regarding this, you will be shortly, please bear with us as we work through enquiries.
I’m an international exhibitor – what are my options?
We are aware that Australia’s international borders may remain closed into the new year, and as an exhibitor based outside of Australia, we understand that this may have an impact on your participation in 2021.
International exhibitors therefore have a few options as of 21 October 2020:
- Exhibit in 2021 using local representation – if you have local offices, representation or a distributor in Australia who can coordinate and staff your exhibition stand in 2021, your booking for Security 2021 can remain as is
- If you do not have local representation in Australia – your existing booking and any deposits will be transferred to Security 2022, or we will work with you for a suitable solution
- Bespoke digital solutions – we remain focused on helping you to reach our Australian buying audience in 2021, whether your brand can attend in person or not. We are working on several digital, virtual and bespoke opportunities and look forward to providing these as an option to you
What if the international borders reopen sooner than expected?
While all decisions regarding international exhibitor attendance must be made by 30 November 2020, we understand that things can change at any time. Therefore, if Australia’s international borders re-open by 28 February 2021, we will be pleased to provide the option for international suppliers to exhibit in 2021. Any international exhibitors who have transferred their booking to 2022, will have the option to transfer back to 2021. This February date has been set to ensure appropriate planning time for travel arrangements and stand building.

What do I do if someone tries to sell me the Security databases and visitor lists?
This is a scam and you should ignore them. Security operates under strict data privacy laws, and we do not share our visitor or any other internal data with unauthorised third parties.
Any communication you may receive offering you to rent/buy or download our visitor or exhibitor contacts is a scam and should be deleted. We are currently exploring legal avenues to shut down these practices.
