Three-day Dubai security, safety, fire protection trade fair to pass 1,300 exhibitor mark
Intersec, the world’s leading trade fair for security, safety, and fire protection, is on track to surpass 1,300 exhibitors from 54 countries when it opens doors for the 19th time in Dubai early next year.
The three-day event shines the spotlight on the latest technologies and innovations in the seven focus areas of Commercial Security, Fire & Rescue, Safety & Health, Homeland Security & Policing, Information Security, Smart Home and Physical & Perimeter Security.
The double-digit growth that Intersec has enjoyed over the last five years has underlined its crucial role in the future development of not only the Middle East and Africa’s security, safety, and fire protection sectors, but beyond.
In 2016, the annual showpiece and attracted 31,000 visitors from 128 countries, and featured 37 of the world’s top 50 security solutions providers, including the entire top ten of Honeywell, Hikvision, Bosch, Safran, Dahua Technology, Assa Abloy, Tyco, Flir Systems, Samsung Techwin, and Axis Communications.
Intersec’s commanding presence on the international stage is reinforced by 83 per cent of exhibitors coming from outside the UAE, while visitors from as far afield as the USA and Brazil, to Australia or Switzerland, choose it as their preferred business networking platform.
“From humble beginnings in 1999, when it featured just 61 exhibitors, Intersec has developed into a global powerhouse,” said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Intersec’s organiser, Messe Frankfurt Middle East. “There is no security, safety, and fire protection trade show anywhere in the world with such a diverse international mix of exhibitors and visitors.”
Intersec 2017 is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and officially supported by the Dubai Police, Dubai Civil Defence, and the Dubai Police Academy.
The 19th edition of the annual showpiece takes place from 22-24 January 2017 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
