Welcome to the ELF Convention 2024 from May 2nd to 4th, 2024 in Düsseldorf.
Welcome to the homepage of the ELF Convention 2024, the international industry meeting for the security and locksmith industry. The venue for this major industry event in 2024 will be Düsseldorf. The proximity to the locksmiths industry region of Velbert/Heiligenhaus is an optimal condition for this location and guarantees an exceptional networking event for the security industry. In addition to a large in-house exhibition with many well-known exhibitors, you can look forward to an exciting and extensive supporting program. Apart from visiting the German Lock and Hardware Museum, you will also have the opportunity to participate in various factory tours in Velbert and Wetter. Furthermore, the entire area in and around Düsseldorf offers a variety of worthwhile excursions to explore.
Introducing the European Locksmith Federation (ELF)
The European Locksmith Federation is a collaboration of European professional associations in the security technology industry. In total, 18 professional associations from 18 different European countries come together as an international umbrella organization with the aim of representing the collective interests of individual security companies and working together to find solutions. The ELF was founded in 1984 and will celebrate its 40th anniversary at the Convention 2024 in Düsseldorf.

In 2024, the interkey e.V., headquartered in Germany, will be the host and organizer of the ELF Convention in Düsseldorf.
