TCCA's Critical Communications Europe (CCE) in conjunction with the BAPCO Annual Conference & Exhibition

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

BAPCO and TCCA have today announced that TCCA's Critical Communications Europe (CCE) event will take place in conjunction with the BAPCO Annual Conference & Exhibition, the BAPCO Show, at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK in March 2019.

The BAPCO show is the annual event for professionals working to utilise, advance and improve Public Safety Technology. The TCCA CCE event is part of the Critical Communications Series hosted by TCCA across the world. This includes Critical Communications World and Critical Communications Middle East and North Africa (CCMENA). Bringing together the BAPCO and TCCA events creates an unrivalled opportunity for all those involved in the sector to come together in the UK to, network, learn and discuss everything to do with Critical Communications and Public Safety Solutions.

Speaking ahead of the announcement, BAPCO President John Anthony MBE said: “I am delighted with the news. We are constantly improving our events and seeking to provide new opportunities for our members. This new agreement with TCCA does just that in taking two already great events and making them even better.”

TCCA Chairman Mladen Vratonjic said: “This is great news for both TCCA and BAPCO. We welcome the opportunity to bring a wider European community to the already successful BAPCO show and together organise a European critical communications event in a year when our major annual event, Critical Communications World, is in Asia. We will work hard to the benefit of all our members to ensure they receive even more value from this combined event.".
