ESS standThe Emergency Services Show 2012 (ESS2012) takes place at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire from Wednesday 21 - Thursday 22 November - just over two months away.

Please put these dates in your diary now, plan ahead and make sure you don't miss out on everything the UK's leading multi-agency emergency services exhibition and conference has to offer.

As a professional trade show aimed at emergency services and resilience professionals, members of partner agencies, voluntary organisations and associated government departments must attend.

ESS2012 is a must for viewing the latest innovations designed and developed for the sector. The show at Stoneleigh Park takes place within three exhibition halls and two outside areas and will showcase equipment and services from some 400 exhibitors.

The show also features a number of additional attractions for this year's visitors, including: CPD workshops from the College of Paramedics; a CBRN Decontamination Workshop; a recovery demonstration from the Road Haulage Association; and the inaugural JESIP National Interoperability Summit 2012.

Doors open at 9.00am on both days and there's so much to see, it's important you make sure your travel plans are in place now.

Getting to the venue couldn't be easier. Stoneleigh Park is easily accessible from the M1, M40, M42, M45, M6 and M9 motorways - enter CV8 2LG into your SatNavs or go to for further details. Stoneleigh Park offers free parking for all visitors.

It is approximately a five-minute walk to the exhibition and conference venue from the car park. However, complimentary transport from the car parks to the exhibition halls will be available in the form of golf buggies, which will make regular trips to and from the show.

buggieWe're aware of some visitors who have already planned ahead - over a dozen personnel from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service are sharing a minibus up to Warwickshire. We're delighted with this and would encourage organisations to consider a similar approach, which will share costs and, we believe, build teamwork and add to a shared experience for all. Why not ask whether your colleagues are attending and put a travel plan together?

Free coaches will be running every 30 minutes from Coventry Station, so we would encourage those visitors coming by train to take full advantage of this complimentary service, which starts from 8.00am. The coaches will drop you outside the exhibition halls and will be making return journeys at the end of each day.

See you there! The Emergency Services Show was developed to encourage collaboration and networking between emergency services. We hope can achieve our aim and bring together everyone involved in emergency situations in a safe and cost effective way.
