Safety & Health Expo virtual event: Connect 2021

The large scale virtual event, Connect 2021, takes place online from 1-30 June 2021. It will be the first time the health and safety profession can come together digitally on such a large scale. It presents a unique opportunity for buyers to browse solution providers and products in an innovative online marketplace, connect with suppliers and request live video meetings. The event will feature a wide range of product demo videos with live Q&A, plus thought leadership webinars.

Speaking about Safety & Health Expo’s virtual presence, Group Director Chris Edwards said: “Safety & Health Expo succeeded in bringing the industry together remotely during 2020 when it was simply impossible to meet face to face. This year, we’ll be building on that success and significantly raising the bar in terms of the content and connections we’ll be delivering for exhibitors and attendees online during Safety & Health Expo  Connect 2021.”


Safety & Health Expo in-person event

We’re getting ready to welcome the health and safety profession back to the UK’s largest dedicated health and safety event. Taking place at ExCeL London on 12-14 July, Safety & Health Expo is your first opportunity to  network and do business face-to-face.

Your safety will be at the heart of Safety & Health Expo.

The event is organised by Informa Markets, the world’s leading exhibitions organiser, a business with 450 brands and 5.8million event attendees. Informa has collaborated with association partners, peers, venues, suppliers, contractors and health, government and local authorities to develop industry-wide All Secure standards that raise the bar on safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organised event experiences. Informa AllSecure is how these standards are being adopted in our business.

All Informa events will be run according to official government and local authority guidance in the first instance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. In addition, all Informa events around the world, irrespective of format or location, will follow the ten Informa AllSecure priority commitments.
