Milestone Drops IFSEC

By: John Honovich, Published on Apr 18, 2019

Milestone has dropped out of Europe's largest annual security trade show (IFSEC 2019), telling IPVM that they "have found that IFSEC in EMEA no longer is attractive to us".

Inside this note, we examine Milestone's move and rationale plus downsizing by Dahua and Hikvision and IFSEC's response to IPVM.

Related, see our 2018 IFSEC show report.
