Top security officials for Abu Dhabi conference
Abu Dhabi, January 24, 2008
Top police and security officials will share their knowledge and experience on combating threats to international security at a conference in Abu Dhabi in March.
The International Security National Resilience (ISNR) Conference will be held in Abu Dhabi on March 2.
Experts from the UAE, Lebanon, UK, France, Germany and Canada will attend the event.
The one-day conference is being organised alongside the inaugural edition of ISNR Abu Dhabi Exhibition from March 2 to 5 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre (Adnce) under the patronage of Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of UAE Armed Forces General Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The conference is being organised by the Dubai-based Institute for Near East and Gulf Military Analysis (INEGMA), in cooperation with Reed Exhibitions Middle East and UAE’s Ministry of Interior.
INEGMA Co-founder and managing director Riad Kahwaji said the conference is expected to be attended by up to 300 delegates and more than 100 managers of industrial and security companies.
“The speakers at the conference will provide valuable studies and present feasible solutions for challenges such as maintaining security and safety in multinational environments, security preparedness for big events such as the Olympics, the balance between security requirements and human rights, use of technology in enhancement of ports and airports security, cyber terrorism and its social and economic consequences,' Kahwaji said.
'We believe that this exhibition and conference will bring tremendous benefits for those engaged in homeland security tasks, such as border and transport security, counter terrorism, critical infrastructure protection, crisis management and resilience, intelligence and threat assessment, and emergency preparedness and response,' said chairman of ISNR Abu Dhabi Organising Committee Brigadier Mattar Al Nayadi highlighting the role and support of UAE’s Ministry of Interior.
Over 80 per cent of the 13,000 sq metres in exhibit space has been booked by more than 130 local, regional and international security companies. Global players including EADS, Thales, Sagem, Allen-Vanguard, Britten-Norman and Plextek, Honeywell, IBCOL, IGG, Denel, Gunnebo, Bachmann, Zenon, Escape, Dallmeier, ADCOM, MP3 International, Nabooda, EAE, Advanced Integrated Systems, Avon Protection, Dascam Consulting and the Al Hamra Group have confirmed their participation at the show.
ISNR Abu Dhabi is the second leg in the ISNR series and follows ISNR London which was held on December 4 and 5, 2007 at the National Hall, Olympia, London. Besides the exhibition ISNR Conference, the event will also consist of workshops by companies that specialise in high-end security technology, systems and services.
ISNR Abu Dhabi incorporates the former Security and Safety Middle East, Infosecurity and APTS (Airport, Port & Transport Security) Middle East exhibitions. – TradeArabia News Service
