APTS Europe 2006: Tom Allett previews Airport, Port & Transport Security Europe (APTS) 2006, which takes place at London's Olympia on December 5-6.

These days there seems to be a proliferation of aviation conferences and exhibitions, so it can be difficult to decide on the 'must attend' events. Obviously your particular area of expertise will help you to determine which you should commit to, but you can only judge the true value of an event once you have attended it yourself.

Having been to APTS Europe in London both as an exhibitor and a journalist several times in the last few years, I am happy to say that this is one event that always exceeds my expectations. Previous APTS conferences have attracted a very impressive lineup of speakers and 2006 looks set to achieve equally high standards. I have certainly learned a great deal from attending in the past, but an even greater bonus has been the excellent networkings

opportunity it provides, enabling you to significantly expand your list of contacts.

As usual, the 2006 event runs in conjunction with other highly appropriate conferences and exhibitions, which are all brought together under one roof. This year they are titled: Counter Terrorism World, Event and Venue Security and Infrastructure Security. All four themes come under the joint heading of Building a Secure World.


The conference has five streams; Aviation Security, Maritime & Supply Chain Security, Event & Venue Security, and--new for 2006-Infrastructure Security.

Each conference stream will present its own take on the challenges facing the industry in the years ahead. The debates will be held in the centre of and adjacent to the exhibition area. A main plenary session, held on the opening morning, is complemented by keynote and workshop streams, which are designed to allow delegates to follow their own agenda by attending the sessions most relevant to them. The timetable also provides ample time for delegates to arrange meetings with other delegates or the organisers.

The comprehensive session focuses upon the psychology of terrorists and what breeds terrorism, and this is followed by individual case studies from the UK and overseas. The requirement to focus upon co-operation and shared responsibilities will also be highlighted.

Exhibition Hall

Having four linked security events in one large exhibition hall has succeeded in attracting more than 1,50 exhibiting companies to London's Olympia this year. All four exhibitions are open to legitimate profession visitors free of charge.

The programme addresses the key markets within the security sector. All the big names from the aviation security industry will be there; providing ever)thing from protective clothing to access control, explosive and narcotics detection, and blast protection. It is a great opportunity to see all the very latest security equipment on the market under one roof. Whatever your specific security interest, you can find an exhibitor providing the solution here. If you are visiting the exhibition, don't forget to schedule in some time to visit us at the Airports International stand--B8--in the APTS section.
