A unique, international platform showcasing major-scale exhibitions of specialist solutions and innovations

The two-day high-level conference is co-located with Aid&Trade, and the International Disaster Management Exhibition and Emergency Show. World Humanitarian Forum visitors have VIP access to these additional exhibitions, which attracted more than 3,000 delegates. This year over 4,000 global public and private sector officials and leaders are expected.

The events showcase the latest technologies, including drones that aid humanitarian work, new partnership models, food security and disaster management.


Aid&Trade London, now in its 5th year, is the fastest growing humanitarian event of its kind. Showcasing the very latest products and services, Aid&Trade London, is the event for doing business and ultimately improving the delivery of aid.  


International Disaster Management Exhibition (IDME) launched in Istanbul, 2012. After the success of hosting its 5th edition in London last year, the sixth edition will be held in 2021. The event showcases specialist equipment, technology and services for disaster prevention, and response and recovery.

Emergency Show

Emergency Show, now in its 2nd year, is London’s annual trade exhibition for the Blue Light Sector. The exhibition includes specialist solutions and innovations, a series of free-to-attend seminars and workshops.

“These events are really important because there is often new products and innovations that people need to be made aware of and this is a great opportunity to do it all in one or two days."
