DUBAI, January 28, 2016

A leading trade fair for security, safety and fire protection registered a 17 per cent growth, with the number of visitors exceeding 31,000.
 
Intersec 2016, which took place at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre recently, featured double digit growth, with product launches galore and more widely representative than ever before.
 
The show's success built on growing demand in the region for enhanced safety and security systems spurred by huge on-going investments in new commercial and civil infrastructure, it said.
 
More than 2,400 brands were showcased from over 1,290 exhibitors from 55 countries at the event.
 
Ahmed Pauwels, chief executive officer of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the organiser of the event, said: "Intersec continues to showcase the latest global trends and developments to regional buyers as well as facilitating invaluable interaction through an on-going exchange of ideas and knowledge dissemination", said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of organiser, Messe Frankfurt Middle East."
 
Fire and Rescue, which was 27 per cent larger than the previous year, recorded the fastest growth at Intersec this year. The section witnessed huge interest from trade visitors, given the number of high-profile fire incidents across the region recently. 
 
Also attracting considerable interest was the Information Security section, with buyers searching for the latest in cyber protection systems to safeguard from the growing spectre of cyber threats.
 
Debuting this year was the Smart Home Automation section, which attracted huge attention from trade visitors and industry professionals.
 
With the Middle East expected to constitute as much as ten per cent of the global Smart Home market, the section drew strong interest from leading international brands. Industry leaders including: Schneider, Fermax, Assa ABLOY, Honeywell, Xtralis and CP Plus were all on hand demonstrating their latest products and systems such as energy management systems, HVAC control, entertainment control, security and access control.
 
A wide range of exhibitors made debuts of new products and services to the region. As many as 100 new product launches underlined the show's premium position as the launch vehicle of choice for the regional safety and security industry.
 
Buzzing with activity from the very beginning was the new Smart Home section – where a live demonstration area of a ‘simulated villa’  offered  visitors a real-time showcase of smart home products in action ranging from Digital Door Locks and home video cameras, to Roller Shutters,  Door Video Phone Panels / TV Controller/ Ipad to Monitor and Controls.
 
Other new additions this year included a Safety Design in Buildings Pavilion in the Fire and Rescue section, along with a dedicated Jobs and Careers Pavilion. 
 
Alongside the event was a busy schedule of industry conferences which were held in co-operation with the Dubai Police and Dubai Civil Defence: the Occupational Health and Safety Conference, the Middle East Fire Conference and the Critical Infrastructure Security Conference. - TradeArabia News Service
