Now in its 28th year, the event is expected to attract 4,500 visitors from government and private enterprises and more than 150 leading local and international suppliers will be showcasing the latest business security solutions for the Australasia market. The exhibition will be complemented by an extensive conference and seminar program which will focus on the security trends and strategies shaping the industry in the year ahead. 
“We are constantly looking at ways to evolve the exhibition to ensure it stays at the forefront of this dynamic and growing industry,” Kylie McRorie, exhibition manager, Security 2013 Exhibition, said. “Through some exciting new features and partnerships, Security 2013 will look ahead to the next generation of security and will offer the industry even greater value in 2013.”
Hosted by the Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL), the industry¹s peak body in Australia, the Security 2013 Conference will be held in conjunction with the exhibition. In another bold move by the organisers, the conference will come to the show floor in 2013 providing delegates with a complete exhibition and conference experience and greater opportunities to connect with the industry. 
“As security needs rapidly evolve to meet the ever changing requirements of society, Security 2013 Conference will provide a unique platform for visitors to hear about the most pressing issues facing the industry today,” commented John Fleming, general manager, ASIAL. 
“With an impressive line-up of acclaimed security experts from Australia, Security Conference 2013 is a must attend event for security professionals, government officials and technology leaders who are eager to understand what lies ahead for the future of security.” 
A new product showcase will be sponsored by Verint and there’s to be a focus in the seminar program on practical and educational seminars, including a series of panel discussions featuring real-life case studies. The event organisers are calling for expressions of interest from industry experts in a range of topics and trends, including but not limited to the Cold Cyberwar, sub-system integration for business intelligence and other lateral applications and strategies for a safer Sydney.
