The 19th edition of the annual three-day event will feature more than 1,300 exhibitors from 52 countries, while over 31,000 visitors from 128 countries are expected to attend as they seek the latest solutions across seven show sections of Commercial Security, Fire & Rescue, Safety & Health, Homeland Security & Policing, Perimeter & Physical Security, Information Security, and Smart Home & Building Automation.
Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East
“Middle East organisations and end-users realise the impact of security and fire safety on their overall productivity and bottom lines, while regional governments have always been committed to protecting critical assets and people in the face of perceived threats along with social and commercial interests.
In this respect, the region has carved out a niche for itself in the global security, safety, and fire protection industries. The coming edition will be even wider in scope and reach and will provide trade visitors a comprehensive look at what’s available to suit their varied needs, whether that be for governments and authorities, or for private sector end-users in aviation, oil & gas, construction, finance, hospitality, logistics, retail or healthcare."
Commercial Security Section
With more than 580 exhibitors, Commercial Security is the largest section at Intersec 2017, with more than two-thirds of the world’s top 50 security solutions players on board, including Hikvision, Bosch, Dahua, Assa Abloy, Tyco, Flir, Hanwha Techwin, Axis Communications, Avigilon Panasonic, Infinova, Idis and Milestone Systems.
Promise Technology is a returning exhibitor in 2017, and will use the show to introduce some of its most exciting solutions yet.
John van den Elzen, Promise Technology’s Surveillance Business Unit General Manager
“Promise Technology has been developing NVRs (network video recorders) and storage optimised for surveillance for years, and now we’ll launch a complete new product line with a management server, analytics server and recording server.
With our business taking off in the Middle East due to the strong demand for storage, we’ll also introduce a new high-capacity surveillance storage block solution, which is ideal for deployments requiring a large centralised storage solution, offering an open-platform, simplicity, optimisation, and the most comprehensive partner ecosystem."
Van den Elzen added: “The Middle East is showing very strong interest in cloud-based storage solutions, and we’re working on this with an eye towards the growing trend of smart cities. With the Dubai Expo 2020 coming up and the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, there are certainly opportunities for Promise to work together with our partners to further develop surveillance cloud solutions.”
Information Security Section
With more than 50 exhibitors, Information Security has been one of the major growth sections at Intersec, and has doubled in size every year since it was first introduced to the show in 2014, as security threats to businesses spread beyond the physical realm.
Headline exhibitors confirming their participation early next year include Agility Grid, Al-Mazroui – ICAS, Commend, Dell, Easy World, Hanvon, Infosec, Matrix, Netronics, Quantum IT, and Rittal, a manufacturer of IT networking and Data Centre Physical Infrastructure solutions.
Smart Home & Building Automation Section
Smart Home & Building Automation is the most recent show section added to Intersec’s vast product scope, as urbanisation and a new age of ICT (Information and communications technology) aids the march toward smarter integration of different functions like electro-mechanical controls, fire and safety security systems, and energy management.
Building Automation Section
Among the 50 plus leading players in this section at Intersec 2017 are Fermax, Somfy, HDL, Videocom, Techcom, Hunt and Teleste, all of which will present their latest solutions to a regional market that’s beginning to demonstrate interest in the benefits of home automation and systems integration.
Fire & Rescue (400 exhibitors), Safety & Health (100 exhibitors), Homeland Security & Policing (100 exhibitors), and Perimeter & Physical Security (50 exhibitors) wrap up the dedicated show sections at Intersec 2017, firmly underlining its position as world’s most influential exhibition dedicated to security, safety and fire protection.
The show’s strong international flavour will be further enhanced by 14 country pavilions from Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Taiwan, UK, and USA.
Pavillions at Intersec 2017
Returning features to Intersec 2017 include the Safety Design in Buildings Pavilion in the Fire & Rescue section, which has doubled in size and will shine the light on fire-rated building materials such as facades, fabrics, doors, windows, paints, stucco, and egress systems.
A Techtextil Pavilion in the Safety & Health section will also present the entire spectrum of technical textiles and nonwovens for professional and protective clothing, as well as the latest laminating technologies for coating, printing, finishing and other products and services.
A Gpec (General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference) Pavilion at the Homeland Security & Policing section; a Job Pavilion, bringing thousands of professionals together with specialist security-related recruitment companies; and three industry conferences held in cooperation with the Dubai Police and Dubai Civil Defence wrap up the host of additional features.
Intersec 2017 is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and officially supported by Dubai Police, the Dubai Civil Defence, and Dubai Police Academy.
