Mideast's top security expo set to kick off in Dubai

DUBAI, January 6, 2019

More than 500 leading companies in the field of safety, security and fire protection from across the globe will be showcasing their innovative products and solutions at the Intersec 2019 expo which kicks off on January 20 in Dubai, UAE.

A mega trade and networking event for safety, security and fire protection, Intersec will run from January 20 to 22 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The annual expo, organised by Messe Frankfurt Middle East, will encompass the seven sections of commercial security; Fire & Rescue; Perimeter & Physical Security; Safety & Health; Homeland Security & Policing; Information Security; and Smart Home & Building Automation.

This year's event is expected to draw in more than 1,300 exhibitors from 59 countries. Global industry giants including two-thirds of the world's Top 50 security providers besides other international security brands will be there to tap into and harness the enormous growth potential of the wider regional market.

With Intersec 2019 around the corner, one of the key focal points of the mega event continues to be commercial security - which will form the largest section when doors open in Dubai, said the report.

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 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, it stated.

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. Increasing awareness of security threats and a growth in IT spending will keep the market driving ahead.

Meanwhile the demand for biometric access controlled systems has surged across the Middle East with the growing adaption of fingerprint and eye scanners across the region. The largest share of deployment of such systems in the region remains in the commercial sector.

According to 6W Research, the market for intelligent video analytic software and systems is also on the rise across the entire region and are expected to create huge growth opportunities for manufacturers, vendors and distributors.

Intersec show director Andreas Rex said: "Commercial security continues to be one of the chief driving sectors as companies across the region continue to invest in cutting-edge intelligent security systems to protect their investments and facilities in an increasingly complex security scenario."

"As the most influential and significant international trade platform for safety, security and fire protection in the wider region, Intersec 2019 will showcase a wide spectrum of the latest developments in the commercial security sector," he added.

Leading international security solutions provider CP Plus will be front and centre at Intersec 2019 with its latest range of intelligent surveillance products.

"Indeed, we’ve had a long association with Intersec, and we look forward to it each year with renewed enthusiasm. Video surveillance has evolved manifold over the years and as a market leader we have always strived to stay ahead of the competition," remarked its director Gaurav Khemka.

"The new age surveillance is all about automation, intelligence, and resource efficiency," he noted.

"This year, we are focused on showcasing our Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) based technologies - IP surveillance solutions; Network PoE switches; 4K analog HD solutions with H.265+ Codec; Law & Enforcement solutions such as Bodyworn cameras and Mobile DVRs; Command and Control Room solutions including Integrated VMS and Health Monitoring systems; Time & Attendance solutions with Cloud management; and Multi-apartment Video Door Phone systems," stated Khemka.

Meanwhile, Fernando Cajal, the international sales manager of Gesab, a leading security solutions provider, said: "Attending an event like Intersec allows us to get in touch with the main decision makers of security and defence projects. We can show our solutions directly to our target and meet new customers, as well as new developments in the sector."

Gesab, he stated, will showcase the own custom design and manufacture full range of technical furniture including control consoles, meeting & conference room plus our Dynamic IP Based KVM system DeskWall.

"We are introducing the Gesab Dynamic KVM System DeskWall with the new remote desktop capability and our audio visual solutions with the new DataWall in the region for the first time," he added.

The Middle East is considered a very significant market by Videotec, who use the show's trans-regional reach to meet and interact with a large pool of potential buyers and partners across the region.

"The Middle east is one our most important business area, besides at Intersec is possible to meet visitors from all over the world not only from Middle East. We will showcase our housing, PTZ camera and ex-proof products," remarked Alessandro Francini, the marketing and communications director.

"At Intersec this year Videotec will present several brand new products, for example: the Ulisse Radical range, which are the pinnacle of PTZ camera technology and we will also present some other new ex-proof products too," he added.

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, said the organisers.
