1,300 to showcase key solutions at Intersec

January 2019

More than 1,300 exhibitors from 59 countries will be showcasing their latest offerings at Intersec 2019, a leading trade and networking event for safety, security and fire protection, which opens this month in Dubai, UAE.

The annual event will run from January 20 to 22, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Organised by Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the expo will encompass seven sections: commercial security; fire and rescue; perimeter and physical security; safety and health; homeland security and policing; information security; and smart home and building automation.

More than 500 exhibitors from across the world have already confirmed their presence at Intersec 2019, including two-thirds of the world’s Top 50 security providers, as global security brands continue to make a beeline for the mega safety and security event, to tap into and harness the enormous growth potential of the wider regional market, said the organiser.

Recent market figures released by Knowledge Partner 6W Research estimates that the Middle East market for commercial security will reach $7.4 billion by 2024, achieving a sustained compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.6 per cent.

The research indicated that demand for IP-based video surveillance systems, access control and intrusion detectors would continue to drive the market, which is fuelled by increased government spending on infrastructure projects and the imposition of stringent regulatory policies, creating increased opportunities for global security brands.

Upcoming mega events in the region, such as the Expo 2020 in Dubai and the expected influx of millions of additional visitors are also expected to create demand for the latest in video surveillance systems and intelligent monitoring apparatus.

Access control systems continue to remain in high demand in the Middle East, registering a market revenue of $300 million in 2017.

Intersec 2019 will also have a number of extra features including the Future Security Summit which will address key issues such as: AI, security integration, emergency preparedness and response, data protection, IoT and much more.

Also returning is the Sira Forum, with the latest updates in security law and industry regulations in Dubai, while a one-day Fire Safety and Protection Conference will involve authorities, fire chiefs, engineers, fire-fighters and emergency response professionals, it stated.
