SERIOUSNESS OF SECURITY CONFIRMED BY HUGE NUMBERS AT INFOSECURITY EUROPE 2001 Monday 30 April 2001 PDF Print The queues at the door, the buzz in the hall, and the business that was being done at Infosecurity Europe 2001, proves that at last IT security is at the top of everyone's business agenda. With over 7,200 serious buyers through the doors (an increase of 26% on last year's figures) and with more than the entire current floor area sold out for next year, the organisers confirmed their plans to move Infosecurity into the larger Grand Hall at Olympia in 2002. The popping of champagne corks echoing around the glass dome of Olympia as the event closed was a clear sign that 2001 had been the best show yet in the event's 6 year life-span. Tim Porter Reed Exhibitions IT Industry Director and Infosecurity founder said, "This year has been exceptional, with visitors and exhibitors alike applauding the event. It is clearly the IT security event not to be missed. With 7 Infosecurity events already running across the globe and with the launch this week of Infosecurity New York, it is evident that Infosecurity is the winning platform for the delivery of IT security products and solutions." The exhibitors were clearly delighted as they won deal after deal. Fredrick Engle - Marketing Director of ActivCard said, "We expected Infosecurity Europe would generate more than £1 million worth of business, it will certainly award us closer to £3 million worth of business." Catherine Hackett - UK Corporate Marketing Director of Symantec said, "The faces pressed against the glass of our packed seminar proved to us the popularity of this event - it has been brilliant." John Doody - Head of CESG said, "Infosecurity 2001 has been the best show yet. The number of positive contacts and leads has greatly exceeded those of previous years - IT security has really taken off." The IT security heads who attended the event were evidently visiting the show for the comprehensive mix of companies exhibiting the latest solutions and products and for the extensive seminars and keynotes which in almost all cases had standing room only. Interest in PKI was high, as was the interest in smartcard solutions and digital identity. This growing demand for digital identity products has resulted in a new event called SmartSolvExpo 2002 being launched by Reed Exhibitions. These two events will both take place from 23rd-25th April 2002, Infosecurity Europe 2002 in the Grand Hall Olympia and SmartSolvExpo 2002 in Olympia 2.
