MLA Expo 2019 Europe’s Largest Locksmith Exhibition

Europe’s largest locksmith exhibition returns to Telford in 2019, MLA Expo is the security event of the year for the locksmith & security industry, a trade show that can’t be missed.


The locksmithing event of 2019 takes place at The International Centre, Telford, St Quentin Gate, Telford, Shropshire, TF3 4JH on:

· Friday the 4th of October 2019

· Saturday the 5th of October 2019

MLA Expo 2019 is run by the Master Locksmiths Association and is sponsored by DOM UK.

2019 will see the return of our Auto locksmith exhibition area called’ The Garage’ .

This is being run in collaboration with the Auto Locksmiths Association (ALA) and will feature exhibitors offering products and services specific to the auto locksmithing industry.

There will be a dedicated in-hall auto locksmith seminar area and on vehicle training area.

With 19 exhibitions already under our belt, MLA Expo is the Premier Locksmith & Security Exhibition in Europe.

Record numbers of companies attended MLA Expo 2017, which results with expanding into two exhibition halls to cater for demand.

It’s looking like 2019 will be even bigger than 2017, 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.
