New online system to ease business meeting
Abu Dhabi:, December 5, 2007
An innovative online system that will enhance interface opportunities between exhibitors and key officials from national delegations is set for launch.
The “VIP delegation e-management system”, will be unveiled at International Security & National Resilience (ISNR) exhibition to he held in Abu Dhabi from March 2-5, 2008, organisers Reed Exhibitions Middle East said in a statement.
All ISNR Abu Dhabi exhibitors will be provided with access to the system, enabling them to set up meetings to explore business opportunities, they said.
The system lists all delegations visiting the show and may also indicate their interests and priorities. Once an exhibitor logs in and seeks an appointment with a delegation during the event, the system automatically generates an agenda with a confirmed time and date for the meeting.
“We expect the ISNR Abu Dhabi e-management system to help delegations plan their schedules at the event while ensuring that exhibitors are able to zero-in on high-value business prospects“,said ISNR Abu Dhabi Director Mohamad Nabhani.
ISNR Abu Dhabi Exhibition & Conference will be held under the patronage of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The UAE Ministry of Interior and its affiliate organisations will collaborate with Reed in organising the show, which will occupy four halls at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre.
“The Ministry of Interior will invite official delegations from more than 30 countries from around the world to the event. Most of these delegations will be led by top officials such as the Ministers of Interior, Chiefs of Defense & Security, and Heads of National Security Organizations, and will include senior officials involved in the development, selection and procurement of security systems and equipment in their respective organizations,” said Brigadier Matar Al Nayadi from the UAE Ministry of Interior.
A study commissioned by Reed Exhibitions in preparation for ISNR had concluded that the Middle East’s security market will be worth over Dh7.7 billion next year (2008) and will grow over 50 percent to reach Dh11.8 billion in 2013. In 1998, security spending in the region was just over Dh2.9 billion.
