CIVSEC 2018, which is aimed at professionals in civil security, will be held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Conference Centre from 1-3 May 2018.

The event is a Congress and Expo and will offer a variety of conferences, symposia, themed panel discussions and expert panel discussions covering Human Security, Cyber Security, Social Media, Natural Disaster Management & Response, and Critical Infrastructure Protection & Major Event Security.

CIVSEC 2018 is organised and conducted by Industry Defence and Security Australia (IDSA) which also organises the Australian International Airshow, Land Forces and the Pacific International Maritime Exposition.

IDSA will be showcasing Victorian companies on a 144sqm Victorian Precinct exhibition space, with the aim of promoting Victoria's strengths in the civil security industry.  The exhibition stand set-up will be similar to the design used for the Victorian Government Pavilion (with exhibitor pods) at Land Forces 2016 and Pacific 2017.

The subsidised cost for Victorian companies to exhibit will be $1,000 + GST. This is a great opportunity for a low cost, high profile presence at CIVSEC.

Note that the Victorian Precinct will be operated by IDSA at this event, not the Victorian Government.
