The Awards SOLD OUT in 2014, 2015, 2016 and again in 2017 - So book NOW to avoid disappointment! 

Welcome to Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2018 which will take place on Wednesday 21 November 2018 at London Hilton on Park Lane.

Many thanks to all our sponsors, entrants, judges and guests that made the 2017 event so special. Click here for a few a comments from very impressed guests!

Now in their nineteenth year, Security & Fire Excellence Awards has consistently broken new ground in highlighting the very best people, projects and processes that the security and fire sectors have to offer.  2018 will be no different, although you'll find that we have made a number of category changes this year to make the event even more company, people, team and project focussed.

Owned by UBM, organisers of IFSEC International & FIREX International ...

For 2018, we are again closely aligned with United Business Media’s IFSEC International and FIREX International exhibitions. Indeed, Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2018 represent the biggest single networking opportunity for anyone who’s serious about the fantastic security and fire sectors and their continual improvement.

The perfect opportunity to network and socialise with the very best ...

Every year, around 1,000 of your industry’s foremost practitioners gather at London’s prestigious Hilton Hotel on Park Lane to recognise and honour the magnificent achievements of their peers, at the sell-out event.

Not only do the awards provide great networking opportunities, but the evening is also a tremendous social occasion. The food and wines are always of the highest calibre, and there is great entertainment into the small hours.

Supporting fantastic charities ...

Speaking of which… In recent times, thanks to our ever-popular Charity Casino we’ve raised vital funds for organisations including Victims of the Grenfell Tower Fire, The Teenage Cancer Trust, The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS), Suzy Lamplugh Trust, The Children’s Burns Trust, The Ghana Education Project, SSAFA, ActionAid, Victim Support, The Bobby Moore Fund (for Cancer Research UK) and Child Victims of Crime.

First class entertainment ...

Last year, our host for the evening was the wonderful Gabby Logan, whose professional and slick handling of the presentations, helped to make the evening such a great success. Gabby was ably supported by the incredible, mind boggling magician, Ben Hanlin, all topped off with the very cool Swinging Little Big Band.  Previous hosts have included Jimmy Carr, the legendary Ronnie Corbett, while national media celebrities including Alistair McGowan, Clive Anderson and Marcus Brigstocke have also joined us in times gone by.

Ensure you enter and attend ...

If you’re thinking about entering, sponsoring or maybe you just fancy attending as a guest, don’t just think about it… Do it!
