As well as this there will be a dedicated inhall auto locksmith seminar area and on vehicle training area.
With 18 exhibitions already under our belt, MLA Expo has cemented it’s position as the Premier Locksmith & Security Exhibition in Europe. With record numbers of companies already signed up to Expo 2017 and having had to expand into two exhibition halls to cater for demand, it’s looking like it’ll be bigger even than 2015, itself a record breaking event.
Having started from humble beginnings, being run for many years in hotels, it has grown significantly, and is now the largest Locksmith and Security event of its kind in Europe, requiring a purpose built exhibition venue of 6000+ square meters to house the significant number of exhibitors and visitors who attend the event.
