Security and Resilience

ADS operates a domestic UK security industry business development programme across central government departments and agencies, the police, emergency services and the critical national infrastructure (CNI). This programme includes:

  • Facilitating pre-procurement engagement for major projects
  • Organising a regular series of briefing events with stakeholders and potential customers
  • Maximising business development opportunities around the exhibitions and events we support
  • Providing market analysis around customer priorities and acquisition strategies.

Overseen by our Security Exports Focus Group (SEFG), ADS also operates a dedicated programme of activity to support companies already operating in, or seeking to establish their businesses in international Security markets. We work with partners including the Department for International Trade (DIT) and UK Embassies around the world to provide Members with international market analysis and access, regional and country insight and briefings, and the delivery of focused trade missions and Public Security Exhibitions (PSEs) in priority markets.
