Top firms set for Milipol Qatar
Doha, April 27, 2014
Some of the world’s leading defence equipment manufacturers and security service providers will be in Doha to take part in Milipol Qatar, a major trade exhibition dedicated to internal state security.
Since its creation in 1996, Milipol Qatar has been organised by the Ministry of Interior of the State of Qatar and Comexposium from Paris. The biennial event will kick off on October 20 and run till October 23 at the Doha Exhibition Centre.
Over the years, the expo has established itself as the main platform in the region for internal security requirements due to the professionalism and quality of exhibitors and visitors, said the event organisers.
It also provides access to security markets in the entire region and allows key international industry players to meet in a fast-developing environment with medium- to long-term economic and strategic projects.
At every edition of Milipol Qatar, some of the world’s leading manufacturers and service providers come together and present their latest innovations to security sector professionals from GCC countries such as Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the UAE as well as those from Asia and Africa, they stated.
This has inevitably resulted in almost double the exhibition surface area in 10 years, with an ever increasing number of visitors and official delegations, they added.
On the upcoming event, Milipol’s director of security events, Michael Weatherseed, said: "We believe that the record-setting, biggest and most popular edition of this influential security event in 2012 will definitely be surpassed this year. As a superb platform for the launch of new and innovative products and ‘world firsts’, we expect an increased number of exhibitors and visitors, which would then require in an even bigger exhibition floor space."
"The issue and problem of internal security is a global concern with several local and regional ramifications under a rapidly-changing environment of economic prosperity and growth and even difficulty," he stated.
"With existing or potential challenges from conflicts and criminal activity, varying internal security concerns require a wide range of cutting-edge technologies and services offered by an equally varied expertise of suppliers and service providers," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
