Working together for a resilient Birmingham.

The Emergency Services Show 2009

The Emergency Services Show 2009 – the UK’s leading exhibition & conference for joined up thinking on emergency planning, response and recovery.

24th & 25th November, Stoneleigh Park, Coventry

The challenging and complex nature of today’s emergencies makes it essential for the industry to work together to ensure a more effective response.

Now in its fourth year, The Emergency Services Show is regarded as the premier UK exhibition and conference for promoting multi-agency co-operation and is ideal for anyone involved in emergency services or emergency planning for their organisation.

The Exhibition
The Exhibition provides unrivalled access to cutting edge technology and the latest industry developments from over 300 trade exhibitors.  The Networking Zone, a focal part of the Exhibition, is made up of the Emergency Response Zone, the Police Zone, the Fire & Rescue Zone and the Ambulance Zone. It gives an invaluable insight into the workings of all aspects of the emergency services, providing a unique opportunity to find out more about specific emergency responders, professional, government and voluntary organisations. Both the Exhibition and the Networking Zone are free to attend.
The Conference
The two day Conference explores past, present and future challenges faced by the emergency services and their partners. It provides an environment for a better understanding of the global emergency response issues, and a forum to debate these issues and exchange ideas. Delegates have the opportunity to network and establish new relationships with likeminded professionals which will stand them in good stead for the future.
