Civil defence a key focus for Milipol Qatar

DOHA, July 25, 2016

Civil defence will be a key focus at the upcoming Milipol Qatar 2016, a leading bi-annual event dedicated to homeland security in Doha, Qatar, later this year.

The event will debut a dedicated exhibition area and key conference sessions for civil defence exhibitors this year, said a statement.

Marking its 11th edition and 20 years since the leading bi-annual event dedicated to homeland security in the Middle East was first held in Doha, the event will return to Qatar’s capital with an area dedicated to civil defence exhibitors, it said.

The exhibition, which has long been a key feature on the security market calendar, will be held from October 31 to November 2, at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC).

The event will be held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Emir of the State of Qatar, and will be organised by the Ministry of Interior of the State of Qatar in partnership with the French-based Comexposium Security.

Muriel Kafantaris, exhibition director, Milipol events, said: “The Middle East has witnessed a number of incidents over the past 12 months that have influenced policy, regulation and procedure, and with high profile events due to be held in the region in the coming years, and considerable construction projects planned, it is key that those involved are prepared with the right knowledge and resources, that’s why we decided to focus on Civil Defence area in 2016.”

A number of international companies have already confirmed their participation as part of the dedicated civil defence zone this year, which will be located in a prime position alongside the Ministry of Interior of the State of Qatar’s stand.

Exhibitors such as Bertin Technologies from France, China’s Telo Systems Limited, and Industrial Scientific US from the US will be represented together with regional entities such as Al Majdal Trading, Betafence Middle East, and Leader Healthcare.

Additionally, Qatar’s MoI has announced that it will be allocating a portion of its own stand to civil defence, with leading officials available to discuss latest trends and developments to visitors.

As part of the conference agenda, a number of talks and discussions will also focus on relating topics.

There is still limited exhibition space available for those who wish to take part of Milipol Qatar 2016, which in 2014 attracted 6,583 visitors from 63 countries and 146 official delegates, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
