24 May A remarkable feat
Intersec Saudi Arabia is set to become an annual showcase for the global fire protection, security and safety industry after its debut in Jeddah attracted double the anticipated visitor numbers.
Hoping to win a slice of the Kingdom’s annual US$ 5.5 million safety and security market 170 exhibitors displayed 500 brands in Jeddah’s Centre for Forum and Events and were visited by 6,131 trade buyers.
“We couldn’t have asked for a more successful debut show, and as a launch event, Intersec Saudi Arabia 2017 was a remarkable feat,” said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of the event organisers Messe Frankfurt Middle East.
“An engaging conference programme, critical support on the ground from our partners, the scores of other exhibitors who participated, and of course the attendance of thousands of Saudi trade buyers added to the buzz on the show floor.
“We’re confident Intersec Saudi Arabia will continue to grow in scope and stature in future years.”
