Fire safety market seen at $1.1bn in 2013
Dubai, October 22, 2011
The fire safety market in the Middle East will reach $1.125 billion in 2013 from $635 million in 2008, said the organisers of an upcoming major fire fighting and rescue systems event in Dubai.
The 2012 edition of Intersec, the region’s premier showcase and networking platform for the safety and security industry, will take place from January 15 to 17 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
According to German trade fair organiser Epoc Messe Frankfurt, there is high demand for exhibition space from prospective new exhibitors in addition to returning exhibitors who are opting for more space at the event.
As a result the section is expected to double in space over that of last year.
“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. We have been successful in attracting industry leaders and major suppliers to the event,” said Ahmed Pauwels, chief executive officer of organiser Epoc Messe Frankfurt.
Naffco has been exhibiting at Intersec trade fair and conference since its inception 14 years ago.
Khalid Al Khatib, chief executive officer at Naffco, stated: “We have watched Intersec grow from strength to strength over the years and at the same time we too have been growing our business and are now considered one of the top manufacturers of firefighting equipment worldwide. The importance of fire safety cannot be understated and Intersec provides a strong business platform in which to communicate this message as well as to build more awareness for our brand.”
Global brand Siemens will make its Intersec debut in January, exhibiting its range of fire products including detection and suppression systems and solutions.
Carsten Liesener, head of Fire Safety Systems & Products at Siemens, said: “As a leading international provider of fire safety technology we are looking forward to exhibiting at Intersec in Dubai next year.”
“We aim to use the exhibition to showcase our range of innovative, high quality fire safety products, systems and solutions. In an increasingly competitive environment, it is essential to stay close to our customers and market needs.”
The UAE International FireFit Championships are also expanding and have enhanced the scope for the 2012 edition. – TradeArabia News Service
