Intersec: the Homeland Security market is constantly evolving
Intersec Dubai, the trade fair for Security, Safety & Fire Protection, will take place from 19-21 January 2020 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
According to analysts Frost & Sullivan (F&S), the regional homeland security market will grow annually by 15.5% between 2017 and 2022, fueled by security investments in major infrastructure projects and the ongoing expansion in the building and construction industry.
Demand for integrated solutions are high, with regional governments prioritising public safety and security of critical assets.
The coming edition of Intersec is the 22nd one.
“Intersec’s influence has spread not only across the Middle East, Africa and the Indian subcontinent – the organizers say – but has gone well beyond. Record breaking over 34,800 visitors (+20%) from 135 countries attended the 21st edition of Intersec in 2019 to meet with more than 1,200 exhibitors. Commercial Security, Information Security, Smart Home, Fire & Rescue, Safety & Health, Homeland Security & Policing, Perimeter & Physical Security products and innovations come together in one place. For major brand manufacturers, newcomers, local or international, Intersec, with its unique product diversity, is one of the most important industry meeting points and a source of technologies for wholesale and retail trade as well as for corporate buyers and the government”, they end.
In 2021 Intersec will run side-by-side with Light Middle and Prolight + Sound Middle East, at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 24-26 January, 2021.
“This is a strategic move to maximise visitor and exhibitor turnout as all three shows share a similar visitor appeal, whether system integrators, installers, specifiers, or consultants,” explains Simon Mellor, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East. “With all three shows taking place at the same time, exhibitors will meet a more focussed audience and visitors will be able to take in the entire integration range under one roof. We’re creating a powerful event alignment featuring more than 1,700 exhibitors from 60 countries.The co-location also enables us to strengthen the smart home and building automation focus, which will cover audio and video as well as lighting and security,” adds Mellor. “It will be a feature of its own sitting between Intersec and Prolight + Sound Middle East. We also see high growth potential for emergency lighting, PA systems, egress and escape route solutions and intend to build this segment”, he ends.
