Updated 4 January 2021

Clarion Defence and Security is pleased to announce that the Counter Terror Expo (CTX) and Forensics Europe Expo (FEE) will take place alongside DSEI at ExCeL London on 14-16 September 2021.

The events have been positioned alongside DSEI to offer the strongest business case for exhibitors and attendees to meet and do business on an international scale.

As the UK’s leading networking event for security professionals across industry, infrastructure, government and policing, CTX attracts attendees and exhibitors from across Europe, all of whom will have the opportunity to seek business synergies with a wider pool of stakeholders attending DSEI across the Land, Naval, Aerospace, Joint, and Security domains.

Facilitating business opportunities

  • “As a strategic counter-terror event and the leading European forensics event, both with a global audience, large numbers of the collective audience typically travel to the event from overseas. We have decided that there is a strong crossover audience between CTX, FEE and DSEI attendees that we could leverage to deliver three events side-by-side in 2021 and enable our attendees to take advantage of the business opportunities this will offer.”
    Tracy Bebbington
    Event Director, CTX and FEE
  • "We are pleased to report that we are on target to deliver our strongest ever DSEI in 2021, both in terms of new exhibitor bookings and organic growth of stand size. Thanks to careful management of the floorplan we can run CTX and FEE alongside DSEI and offer attendees and stakeholders a week of business opportunities that will prove to be worth the wait after a tumultuous 18 months for our industry.”
    Grant Burgham
    Event Director, DSEI
