Alex Nicholl, Show Director for Messe Frankfurt Middle East has revealed that the January 2023 show will put technological breakthroughs at the heart of the proceedings.

He said: “We anticipate up to 30,000 security, emergency response, safety and cybersecurity professionals attending Intersec 2023, where technological breakthroughs will take centre stage and attract an influential participant profile.

“Industry experts, influencers, decision and policymakers, and distributors are uniting to explore the strategies and technologies that will govern the safety and wellbeing of future generations.”

The event is taking place against a backdrop of anticipated sector growth. The Middle East’s fire and safety sector is expected to grow 7.5% a year until 2025, to reach US$16.76bn by 2026, according to research firm 6W research.

Intersec will host five key elements: Commercial & Perimeter Security; Homeland Security; Fire & Rescue; Safety & Health; and Cybersecurity. Advanced technological innovation will be dominating each of these segments.

Fire & Rescue will showcase the latest firefighting technologies, the best international standards, and practices, and is supported by the Dubai Civil Defence.

Industry professionals from around the world are expected to descend upon Dubai in January to explore the strategies and advanced technologies that will future-proof global safety and fire protection. Visitors will be given access to more than 10,000 products across the complete security value chain.
