More than 1,000 exhibitors from 120+ countries will provide access to over 10,000 products across the complete security value chain, while visitors will explore the strategies and advanced technologies that will future-proof global safety, at the world’s leading trade fair for safety, security, and fire protection.
Five key segments
Advanced technological innovation will dominate the exhibition’s five key segments:

- Safety and Health, divided into environmental, industrial, and public health and safety;
- Cybersecurity, hosting cyber solutions, experts from national leaders to public & private sector professionals, from cyber connoisseurs to advisors, hackers to responders, and cyber economists to corporate buyers.
A growing market
“We anticipate – says Alex Nicholl, Show Director, Messe Frankfurt Middle East – up to 30,000 security, emergency response, safety and cybersecurity professionals attending Intersec 2023, where technological breakthroughs will take centre stage and attract an influential participant profile. Industry experts, influencers, decision and policymakers, and distributors are uniting to explore the strategies and technologies that will govern the safety and wellbeing of future generations”.
The event takes place against a backdrop of anticipated sector growth. 6W Research forecast the Middle East’s commercial security market will grow 16% a year until 2025 to reach USD 8.4 billion, while the region’s fire and safety sector will advance 7.5% annually to reach USD 16.76 billion by 2026.
“This huge potential has attracted a line-up of leading industry heavyweights, including Honeywell, Bosh, Hochiki, Drager and AXIS Communications” Nicholl adds.
The Intersec 2023 Conference
The Intersec 2023 Conference will be a think tank for future industry strategies, with four focused segments. The conference streams will feature the Intersec Security Leaders’ Summit, and dedicated seminar streams focusing on safety and health, fire and rescue, and tackling ever-growing sophisticated cybersecurity threats.
The 2023 Intersec Security Leaders’ Summit is a high-level strategic summit for the leaders and stakeholders of the security industry to collaborate, innovate and actively seek new technologies to meet the rapidly changing needs of the industry.
The Intersec 2023 Cybersecurity Seminars
The Middle East and Africa’s cybersecurity market size was valued at USD 5.92 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 19.79 billion by 2030, growing at a compound average growth rate of 14.35% from 2022 to 2030. The Intersec Cybersecurity Seminars will feature the latest trends, drivers, challenges and successful case studies across industries that are playing a substantial role in shaping the cybersecurity industry growth.
“The Cybersecurity Seminars – Nicholl continues – will provide a platform of expertise, best practices, and solutions that cater to those working in and managing cyber defence. With key themes including resilience, risk and future-tech among others, the Seminars represent a rare opportunity for industry players to network with global CTOs, CISOs, heads of cybersecurity, and system integrators with real purchasing power”.
Intersec 2023 has the support of Dubai Police, the Directorate General of Dubai Civil Defence, The Security Industry Regulatory Agency and Dubai Municipality.
