Gearing up for the Emergency Services Show 2012

Published:  14 May, 2012

Registration for the UK’s leading exhibition and conference for networking and resources for every emergency will open in at the end of this week. Bookmark  now and visit the site to sign up and register. This year’s show will take place on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 November at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry.

Last year’s Emergency Services Show and Conference attracted over 4,400 visitors and 2012 will look to continue building on the success of previous years. The two-day event promotes multi-agency collaboration and interoperability by bringing together everyone involved in an emergency – from the strategic planners and first responders, to the manufacturers and suppliers of equipment and services used by these leading professionals.

Great place to meet

Commenting on last year’s exhibition, Richard Lush from 1st Response Medical Services Ltd, said, “The Emergency Services Show brings together a great collection of the country’s leading suppliers to showcase current and new products. It’s a great place to meet suppliers, forge new relationships and see what’s new and improved.”

John Bradley MBE, Fleet Manager, Hampshire Constabulary, said the show is, “An excellent event that encompasses a number of emergency services and equipment suppliers under one roof. This event has evolved over the years to be one of the ‘not to be missed’ annual events.”

Free to attend

The exhibition is free to attend for anyone involved in emergency planning, response or recovery in the UK and abroad, giving them the opportunity to share information and best practice for emergency personnel, planning officers and resilience professionals to work together in the future. The two-day event is open to all Category 1 and 2 Responders and is key for those with a role in operations, procurement, training, recruitment and emergency planning.

Why attend

The exhibition and its conference provide access to technology, ideas and initiatives focused on improving public safety, protecting the environment and the critical national infrastructure. With over 400 exhibitors to see, this year’s meeting place for emergency services professionals will be bigger than ever before.

Some of the biggest market leaders will be on display at this year’s exhibition, offering a plethora of the latest products for visitors to see and try out for themselves, including products related to civil resilience, search and rescue, extrication, first response, communications, IT, protective clothing and uniforms, vehicles and fleet, vehicle equipment, training, community safety, station facilities, water rescue and medical supplies.

Companies new to the show this year include: TBI-LUG Europa, E-Semble, Tiger Tools, Mammut UK, Tencate, Delta Fire, Texport, Lewis Medical Supplies, Flame Pro, English Braids, ARCO, YKK, Indicomm Global, ABC McIntosh, Mecmesin, Panasonic Toughbook, Babcock Emergency Services Training, Honda, Step Access, Firemain Engineering, Andreas Stihl and Electrosonic, to name but a few.


Product launches

There will be plenty of product launches at the show and a chance for visitors to look at budget savings. The exhibition will feature three indoor halls and an outdoor exhibition area giving visitors the chance to meet specialist product and service suppliers.

The show’s Emergency Response Zone will once again feature exhibitors from police, fire and rescue, ambulance, professional, government and voluntary organisations from around the UK. This area demonstrates to visitors the capabilities of partnering agencies and the voluntary sector.

Live demonstrations at the show will also provide a unique opportunity to see the latest equipment in action – in 2011 the show featured a public order water cannon from the Police Service of Northern Ireland. Expect more surprises at this year’s show.

Visitor registration will go live on the show’s new look website in May 2012, please visit: for more information.
