By: John Honovich, Published on Jan 23, 2020

Two of the best-known video surveillance manufacturers are dropping IFSEC International 2020, joining Milestone who dropped IFSEC in 2019.

The show, for many years the biggest annual security one in Europe, is facing significant challenges.

We share feedback from Axis and Genetec and look at the issues involved for IFSEC and European trade show events.
