VB2019 will be held 2-4 October 2019 at the Novotel London West hotel in London, UK.



VB Conference

In its 29th year, the annual Virus Bulletin International Conference (VB2019) will be one of the most international threat intelligence events of the year, focusing on the sharing of intelligence between researchers and analysts, product managers and CISOs from around the world.

More than 400 delegates from around the world are expected to attend VB2019 in London, UK.


From 2-4 October 2019, the world's leading threat intelligence and IT security experts – from academia and vendors to non-profits and mega corporations – will gather to share their expertise, ideas, research and predictions.

VB2019 will offer three full days of cutting-edge presentations, debates, and panels that cover all aspects of threat intelligence, as well as networking opportunities that maximise the possibilities for making contacts and sharing information.



As a global hub for finance and business, London plays a pivotal role in anything 'cyber' and the city's multicultural character makes it an excellent location for one of the most international conferences in the security field.

London, of course, is also a great tourist destination for those who want to spend some extra days in the city before or after the event. It is home to the world-famous British Museum, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Westminster, as well as many other famous sights and attractions. You can eat great food from around the world, travel around on double-decker buses or take a boat trip along the Thames.
