The 16th and largest ever edition of Intersec, opened for business at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre yesterday (Sunday, January 19th), with organisers reporting a 22% growth in number of participating exhibitors.
 
Global demand for security services is set to grow at 7.4% annually to US$244 billion in 2016.* According to recent research by G4S, the growth rate in the Middle East (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Egypt, Kuwait, Oman) is as high as 10%. With 1,210 companies from 54 countries opting to showcase their products and services at Intersec, the region’s premier international showcase for the safety, security and fire protection industries, this robust response underlines the growing importance of the Middle East region in the international marketplace. 
 
Spread out across 9 halls, Intersec 2014 got underway with a well-attended opening ceremony presided over by chief guest HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. HH Sheikh Mansoor later toured the exhibition extensively and was accompanied by senior representatives from the government, with a particularly strong representation from Dubai Police, Dubai Police Academy and UAE Civil Defence, along with organiser, Epoc Messe Frankfurt.
 
Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Epoc Messe Frankfurt commented during the opening ceremony: “The Middle East region continues to be one of the most exciting markets for the safety, security and fire protection industries as can be seen from the growth of Intersec. The region has always been receptive to new ideas and technologies and the success of exhibitors who use Intersec as a launch pad for product launches is testament to the fact.”
 
“The current edition of Intersec has not only a wider range of products, services and new technologies on show than ever before, but also comprises of a comprehensive conference programme that adds immensely to the benefits Intersec seeks to provide the regional community,” he added.
 
Encompassing four key focus areas: Commercial Security & Information Security; Safety & Health; Fire & Rescue and Homeland Security & Policing, Intersec 2014 is attracting a wide-representation of trade visitors from the safety, security and fire protection industries from across the greater Middle East region. Some of the hot topics expected to cause waves at the exhibition include: the integration of surveillance, access control and all other security systems into one; PSIM (Physical Security Information Management); Continuous migration from Analog to IP (CCTV, data storage etc); and the launch of a new remote alarm system for homes by Dubai Civil Defence.
