The biannual event Security Essen is well-known for its importance in the security industry. Fire prevention combined with other security topics are all to be found under the roof of Security Essen as they once again open their gates from September 27 to 30.

In numbers that means: 1,045 exhibitors from about 40 nations welcome 40,000 visitors from 110 countries.

Security Essen once again presents thematic areas of the exhibition as six cornerstones:

  1. Fire Prevention: One of the top themes of the exhibition is fire prevention. 2016 it will be even bigger: predominantly in the area of constructional fire prevention. There will also be a larger focus on live demonstrations. In addition closer collaborations with fire prevention associations and guided tours are planned. The whole topic will be displayed in Hall 1, 3.
  2. IT Security: The Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 with increasing networking and the exchange of large amounts of data, security requirements are also increasing. Always at the cutting edge Security Essen provides a stage for new security solutions from the IT industry. Current issues like economic security and critical infrastructure protection find their place at security Essen. Find it in Hall 7.
  3. Mechanical security systems: Within the framework of complex system solutions this core sector moves with times in terms of market developments. In 2016 a strong focus on integrated solutions for anti-burglar protection will be placed and can be found in Hall 5, 10, 11 and 12.
  4. Electronic security systems: Video surveillance based on “behavioral recognition systems” is the subject of enormous interest for the political and economic sphere. There is a large market potential for intelligent cameras. In addition data protection is becoming more and more important. Go see it in Hall 2,7,8 and the Galeria.
  5. Services: Security Essen provides information regarding current, critical topics such as global travel security. The associations BDGW and BDSW will be returning in 2016 with a wide range of events right from the outset including a session with a committee of technical experts, presentation of the ‘safety chain’ and demonstration of the ‘cash cycle’.

    All can be found in Hall 6.

  6. Perimeter security: An ever-greater focus is being placed on active and passive perimeter security. This involves the protection of companies and high security areas such as embassies airports. Topics concerning perimeter security will be located in Hall 3,4.
