Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2021 TOOK place on Tuesday 23 November 2021 at London Hilton on Park Lane


Thank You

The last year has been like no other in living memory.  Many thanks to IFSEC and FIREX for their on-going support and to the record number of entrants, sponsors, media and association partners, judges and online viewers that supported our inaugural Virtual Awards in 2020!


Awards Trust Mark


We have everything crossed that we will be able to celebrate face to face again at Hilton on Park Lane this year. If this is not possible to do safely, then we will once again go Virtual. Either way, we guarantee that your entries will be reviewed, judged and scored by our independent panel of expert judges and you will have a fair and equal chance of success.

To this end, we are very pleased to have received an endorsement from The Independent Awards Standards Council for our independent judging process, with the presentation of the Awards Trust Mark.

Please continue to enter with the confidence that your entries will be treated honestly and fairly, regardless of status or commercial interest.


Congratulations To Us!






We don’t just run them, we enter them too!

S&FEA Champion of Champions

To recognise 21 amazing years of Security & Fire Excellence Awards in all of its many name changes and guises (IFSEC / FIREX Excellence Awards etc.), we are excited to announce a brand new category:  S&FEA Champion of Champions

This brilliant new category will be open to ALL previous company winners since the inaugural event 21 years ago.  So, if you’ve picked up a trophy as a winner in any company category over the previous 21 events, you will be eligible to enter to see if you will be judged to be the best of the best and THE Champion of Champions!



It’s now all systems go for Security & Fire Excellence Awards, which will take place on Tuesday 23 November 2021 at Hilton on Park Lane!

We have now seen most of the Government restrictions removed and the increased confidence in meeting face to face has led to a surge in table bookings, which means that spaces are booking up fast!

We wanted to share the positive headline news for events, which include:

  • The successful vaccination roll out that is in full swing, set to have all over 18's double jabbed by October (well before our Awards take place)
  • The Government Pilot Business Event resulted in zero cases of Covid-19
  • Increased confidence from our customers to meet face to face again from the summer - 96% of our researched customers are comfortable attending a physical event that follows Government guidance

Whilst the virus is not going away, the vaccine is helping the "new normal" get underway ... and normal means meeting up with clients to network, generate sales leads, socialise and to party!

Please be assured that the health and safety of our guests will always be our number one priority. To that end:

  • A full risk assessment will be carried out with the venue prior to the event taking place to ensure a safe and controlled environment for you and your teams
  • All attendees may be required to show proof of a double COVID vaccine jab or a negative COVID test (to be confirmed nearer the event if required)

Book your tables today and secure places for all your teams.  A limited number of VIP tables are available on a first come first served basis.  Pre-pandemic, the Awards sold out for the last 6 years, so book NOW to avoid disappointment at
