Camden gets all defensive after contract wins!

11th February 2011

Furniture supplier Camden Exhibition Services has expanded into the defence and security sector after signing contracts for two of the market’s most prestigious trade events.

The hire specialist, which is a division of leading events and exhibitions supplier Thorns Group, is to work at Undersea Defence Technology (UDT), being staged on June 7-9, and at Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEi), which takes place on September 13-16.

The two exhibitions – each being held at London’s ExCeL – also reinforce a long-standing relationship with organiser Clarion Events, the leading independent events company with which Camden already works at a host of live events across the UK.

Adam Aston, Thorns’ Director of Exhibitions, said: “We’ve established an excellent working relationship with Clarion Events, thanks to high-profile events aimed at sectors as diverse as travel, gaming and motoring. We’re really looking forward to expanding our role with the company at two major defence and security exhibitions.”

UDT, which is now in its 24th year, is widely regarded as the leading global exhibition and conference for undersea security, underwater warfare and sub-surface platforms, detection and combat systems. The forthcoming event in June is due to include interactive conference sessions, product demonstrations and an Innovation Showcase. Camden will act as sole supplier of exhibition furniture.

Meanwhile DSEi is regarded as the world’s largest fully integrated defence and security exhibition. It is attended by 25,000 attendees from 98 countries and includes official delegations and national pavilions from across the globe.

Features planned for 2011 include electronics, naval and electronic warfare pavilions, security demonstrations and static vehicle displays. Camden will work as official supplier of exhibition furniture.

The latest contracts follow on from Camden’s previous successes in supplying to prestigious Clarion Events shows including ICE totally gaming, Home & Gift, London International Horse Show, The Luxury Travel Fair and prestige and performance motor show MPH.
