UK Security Expo 2017, The Global Security Showcase, 29 - 30 Nov 2017, Olympia London





Hosted Buyer Programme

What is the Hosted Buyer Programme? 

The Hosted Buyer programme is our signature networking event where selected exhibitors meet with relevant buyers in a series of pre-arranged, face-to-face meetings.

It is an invaluable way to source and compare the latest security products and services – in one location.

We have created a matching service that compares the capabilities of the industry suppliers with the needs and requirements of the buyers. Meetings are carefully scheduled using a scoring system. Suppliers receive between 6 & 8 meeting slots.


To apply please contact David Woodbridge on: +44 (0) 7916 166969 or

The UK Security Expo 2016 Hosted Buyer programme we hosted 30 senior buyers with active purchasing requirements and gave our exhibitors the opportunity to nominate those that they wanted to meet.

Each buyer provided details of specific purchasing requirements, including product areas and an estimate of their annual budget. This information wasc collected and matched to products/services to diarise 8-10 face-to-face meetings.

All IPP members have an FOC place in the programme. 

Budgets ranged from £100K - £1 Million+ across a range of product areas including:

Access Control / Biometrics; Data and Document Management; Intrusion Detection / Perimeter Security; Seals / Tamper Evident; CCTV / Video Analytics / ANPR; Trace Detection; Command & Control; Tracking / Monitoring; Integrated Systems; Training and Consultancy; Armoured Vehicles; Communications / Surveillance; Screening & Scanning; Cyber Security…and more.
