Heiko Baumgartner, Publishing Director of GIT SECURITY, asked Iris Jeglitza-Moshage, Chief of Communications, Senior Vice President Technology at Messe Frankfurt Exhibition, how they link the security topic between Light + Building and Intersec Building.

Iris Jeglitza-Moshage, Chief of Communications, at Messe Frankfurt Exhibition:

"To begin with: Connected security has always been a vital element of Light + Building. And, indeed, exhibitors put their according innovations at display all over the fairground. That is why we set-up a Special Interest Guide. From that, it is easy to deduct for visitors where to find the connected security technologies at disposal. For instance, there will be emergency lighting at Hall 8 and street lighting at Hall 4.0 – as generally light is one of the most crucial factors for increasing security. Moreover, we shall be concentrating the range of security technology products and services in a particular hot spot: Intersec Building is therefore present at Hall 9.1. This international platform for connected security is a vital element of linking both, product groups as well as specialists. Its high-density know-how is a direct re-sult of 13 Messe Frankfurt Safety, Security and Fire trade shows from around the globe – among them Intersec Dubai and Secutech Taipei."
