Intersec 2018 will open its doors in January at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The 20th anniversary edition of the world’s largest trade and networking event for security, safety and fire protection, will celebrate two decades of remarkable success, a press release said.
The event will be attended by over 1,300 exhibitors from 58 countries, and is expected to attract over 31,000 visitors from 128 countries.
Commercial security, fire and rescue, safety and health, homeland security and policing, perimeter and physical security, cyber security, and smart home and building automation, will be some of the themes discussed at the event.
This year’s event will feature a drones pavilion and indoor drone zone, while a wearable security pavilion will display advanced textiles including head-up displays, body cameras, embedded sensors, and exo-skeleton communications, the release said.
Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the organiser of Intersec, said, “Intersec continues to scale new heights as the world’s premier showcase of the latest security, fire, and life safety solutions.
“Societies, governments and corporates are increasingly pulling out the stops to combat various threats and ensure the security of people, infrastructure, property and information. This has led to a resultant surge in demand for the latest safety and security products and solutions.
“From the beginning, Intersec has paved the way for leading safety and security providers to access regional markets and facilitated many of the beneficial partnerships and relations forged over the years. By continuing to prioritise the showcasing of the cutting edge new developments and the latest technologies, we hope to continue to play a constructive role in making the region a safer and more secure place.”
