Inaugural Forensics Europe Expo Delivered Over 3000 attendees
London, 17 May 2013
Clarion Events today announced the successful launch of Forensics Europe Expo which took place 24-25 April 2013 at Olympia, London which received 3,239 attendees and 70 exhibiting companies to this inaugural event.
Forensics Europe Expo, Sponsored by LGC Forensics, In Collaboration with Forensic Science Society and Organised in Partnership with The Investigator was launched to provide a dedicated forum for the entire forensics sector and supply chain to source forensics products, equipment and services, as well as providing the definitive source of education, best practice, training and networking.
Speaking about the event, Dr. Caroline Sturdy Colls, Lecturer in Forensic Investigation at the University of Staffordshire’s Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Science commented:
“The show had a good attendance and we met the right type of visitors”
Forensics Europe Expo saw over 70 exhibitors across the entire forensics spectrum meet a wide range of visitors from; UK Police Forces, MOD/Armed Forces, Forensic Laboratories, Government Agencies such as HMRC, Office of Fair Trading, Local Councils, Private Sector companies and Universities. A sample visitor list can be provided upon request.
The exhibition also benefited from the co-location with Counter Terror Expo with many counter-terrorism and security professionals with a remit to procure forensic solutions also visiting the show.
Mike Holden, CEO / Managing Director, Global Forensics Ltd had this to say about the event:
“We picked up a great number of leads and we have already booked our stand for the 2014 event”
The conference programme, produced by The Investigator, was split into dedicated Forensics Innovation and Digital Forensics streams across the two-day event. Presentations were delivered by organisations such as; West Midlands Police, The Forensic Science Society, DSTL, Netherlands Forensics Institute, Greater Manchester Police, LGC Forensics, and CAST to over 150 paying delegates.
Philip Hunter, Event Director from Clarion Events spoke about the success of the event:
“We’re naturally delighted with the first Forensics Europe Expo. We had a sold out exhibition and a higher visitor number than we originally anticipated. With the closure of the Forensic Science Service in March 2012 the forensic supply chain has now evolved into an ‘Open Market’ and this event has really helped bring focus and cohesion to the industry. We are already hard at work with plans to ensure Forensics Europe Expo 2014 continues to serve the best interests of the Forensics sector.”
