The 2018 Three Counties Defence and Security Expo will take place on May 31 at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern.

This year the theme is Innovation, with a focus on cyber security, hardware and vehicles, UAV and counter-UAV technology, communications and military procurement.

The event is unique among defence and security expos, offering business to business networking with key decision-makers.

Richard Morgan is Head of Defence, Security and the Forces team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys and lead for 3CDSE. He said: “Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire comprise the hub of the UK’s defence and security industry, the “golden triangle”, with Special Forces in Hereford, Qinetiq and the Malvern Cyber Cluster in Worcestershire and GCHQ in Gloucestershire, and all the satellite industries around them. Several sources suggest that 90% of the UK’s defence and security innovation has its home in this triangle.”

Key speakers at the event come from across the regional and nationally. They include Nicola Whiting, Chief Strategy Officer at Worcester-based Titania and Tony White, Chief Technology Officer at Ultra Electronics, which has a site at Cheltenham. Paul Crumpton, a Business and Cyber Crime expert from West Mercia Police; Dr Emma Philpott of Malvern-based IASME which focusses on information assurance for small companies, and Peter Rogers of GBR14 LTd, a Tewkesbury-based cyber company with a unique ‘identity crypt’ product for protecting data.
