Infosecurity Europe posts sharp visitor rise

Infosecurity

Infosecurity Europe has claimed visitor numbers rose by nearly a quarter at last month’s show at Earls Court.
 
The show had nearly 13,000 unique visitors, a 24 per cent increase on 2011 (pending ABC audit). More than 300 exhibitors were at this year’s event, organised by Reed Exhibitions, of which more than a quarter were new.
 
“The numbers speak for themselves,” Infosecurity Europe event director Claire Sellick claimed. “Every year the subject matter increases in significance as the threats we all face continue to intensify but also diversify.
 
“Everyone realises the importance of information security and the need to invest more, balanced with the ideal of finding the perfect solution. From those I’ve spoken to, it is apparent that we’ve managed to successfully marry all the right factions together with a good mix of exhibitors, speakers andvisitors.”
 
Information commissioner Christopher Graham, who oversees data protection in the UK, was onsite on the second day as a speaker in the Keynote Theatre.
 
“This was my first visit to Infosecurity Europe at Earls Court and I was immediately impressed at the scale of the event,” he said. “The whole event was an extremely good use of my time. I'm convinced the information commissioner, or one of the deputy commissioners, needs to be at Infosecurity because it's a really good occasion.”
 
Minister of State for Universities and Science David Willetts also delivered a seminar on how to protect and promote the UK in a digital world.
 
More than 80 per cent of the floor space has been booked for next year’s show, which will be at Earls Court from 23 to 25 April.
 
The exhibition enhanced the event with a new partnership with Infosecurity magazine for this year’s show.
