Naffco and Firex, long term supporters of the event will return once more with two of the largest stands at the trade fair, while first time exhibitor Siemens will join the fore of key international players at the event.
“The strong response from the fire and rescue sector reflects the growth of the regional industry and indicates the increasing extent for the latest in safety systems and technology. We are building on the quality and scope of Intersec year on year.
