Australia’s biggest security event has been cancelled for the year due to social distancing measures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The 35th edition of the Security Exhibition & Conference has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and will next take place from 21 – 23 July 2021, in Sydney at the ICC,” organisers said this morning.

“After many weeks of talking to the industry and consulting with our partners regarding suitable rescheduled dates in Q4, we have made the difficult decision that at this present time, in the interest of the health and safety of our community, cancellation is unavoidable.

“What we are experiencing is new territory for everyone – we continue to be grateful to our community – our exhibitors, speakers, partners, visitors and venues – for their continued support and patience during this unprecedented time.”
