FIREX announces plans for 2021 and new dates for in-person event

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

Chris Edwards, Group Director at Informa Markets announced: “The safety and wellbeing of our attendees and exhibitors is our foremost
priority which is why we have moved the date to the summer of 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 19 November 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, FIREX International has also announced plans for a variety of online events, set to take place in June, 2021. Chris Edwards commented: “While 2020 had its challenges for in-person events, FIREX International was able to innovate and bring the industry together remotely via online platforms and we are looking to further build on that success in 2021.”

FIREX International 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.
