Latest Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update



In what has been the most challenging period in our event planning history, it is with great sadness, that we confirm the postponement of The Security Event, The Fire Safety Event, The Health and Safety Event, The Facilities Event and The Emergency Services Show. All shows due to take place this September, have been postponed to 27-29 April 2021 at the NEC.

Thank you for bearing with us during this incredibly difficult time. Feedback across all shows for this September has been understandably mixed, ranging from ‘supportive’ to ‘not sure’ and ‘prefer to postpone’.

Also, our venue, NEC, require authorisation from Government to open for shows, which at the time of this announcement, they unfortunately still do not have.

Without this authorisation and guidance, we cannot commit to September as we are prevented from having sufficient time to ratify exactly what, and how, we can work with the venue and partners to finalise what a Covid-secure event looks like.

Ultimately, safety must come above all else. Given this continued uncertainty, we are left with no option other than to postpone allowing us to safely deliver our events.

We are confident that this postponement is in the best interests of all and will give us the best opportunity to deliver top-quality content and the best ROI for all participants.

We love our shows, our sectors, and our team at Nineteen remain committed to going the extra mile for our communities. We will continue with our digital series of events and Connect+ services, uniting buyers with sellers before, during and after our physical events.

Visitor registrations will be transferred to the new dates.

We look forward to working with you towards a stronger, and brighter future, together.
