Venue

The public safety sector have emphasised the importance of event location to a successful show. With this in mind, journey times have been carefully considered with the choice of the new location at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. This excellent and fully adaptable facility can accommodate up to 6,000 m2 of conference and exhibition space, allowing for the 2018 event to be even bigger and better. The venue is just metres from Junction 3 of the M6, and is also close to Coventry Arena and Coventry main stations.
