Event Update

The next live edition of Intersec has been scheduled for 14.01.2025 to 16.01.2025. The event will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre and will not feature rigorous Covid-19 precautions. This is because the UAE has lifted its pandemic-related limitations.

Not to mention the great opportunities to promote new releases. Here are the most important numbers from the last edition:

  • 6000+ brands and products
  • 500+ international exhibitors 
  • 18,000+ international trade visitors
  • 1400+ delegates

Industry Relevance 

Intersec graces the exhibition halls of Dubai World Trade Centre every single year in January and as such it represents the first important meeting for the security centre for the year. The trade fair has been in operation since 1999 and serves as a bridge between the East and West in terms of the technological advancements and solutions across security, emergency services, safety, policing and cybersecurity. These are the key sectors, which make up the backbone and DNA of the trade fair, and position it as an integral part of the global security industry. 

Trade visitors gain access to the entire product assortment, which turns Intersec into a one-stop marketplace for all their needs. The exhibition halls feature gates, GPS, biometrics, monitoring systems, surveillance, CCTV, DVR, video management & analytics, authentication systems, home & building automation, turnstiles, locks, barbed wire fences, safes, and alarms. New products are released every day and you can experience them first hand. 

As we’ve already mentioned, the Global Security Summit takes place here alongside an involved support programme full of live demonstrations, webinars, the Future Security Summit and the Fire Conference. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

SIRA, NAFFCO, BOON EDAM, Dubai Police, DEREDUCK, Easten Middle East, Ejadah, IDIS Middle East & North Africa, Pelco and Avigilon are some of the companies that have exhibited at Intersec as recently as 2020. Manufacturers come from all sectors, but in recent years there’s been a significant boom in the field of cyber security and commercial security. 

The audience is varied. You network with other manufacturers and distributors, but there are also government officials, trade agents, wholesales, importers and exporters. Government authorities are completely represented with delegations from police forces, law enforcement, civil defence, military & armed forces, customs, utility services, airports, and ports. When it comes to decision-making powers, roughly 60% of visitors have a direct influence on purchasing and procurement decisions. The percentage is similar for the top or senior management, which translates to real opportunities to grow your professional network and realise business projects. 

Intersec manages to keep a high degree of internationality, representing all major regions - Asia, Africa, Europe, the Americas, the UAE and the MENA (Middle East & North Africa) region.

Additional Value of Attendance 

The conference track at Intersec is incredibly diverse, but the star is the Global Security Leader’s Summit, which gathers all the global leaders in the security industry under one roof. This think tank is the guiding event that develops strategies for the future. The summit is held under the slogan ‘Strategy, Foresight and Response for a Secure Homeland’ – an ever relevant topic given the state of affairs and the developing war in Ukraine. There will be government authorities, policy makers, law enforcement, civil defence and private organisations. 

The Global Security Leader’s Summit is only one of the many conferences held during Intersec. There are also Protecting Future Connected Cities and Citizens, Agile First Responders, Cyber Security lab, Safeguarding Critical Infrastructure, and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Focus Day.

Exhibitors have additional tools to generate business and make high-value contacts. A key example is the Premium Club geared towards select buyers and influence, who are truly invested in making purchases. The club’s programme makes it possible for them to meet with desirable exhibitors in a structured and relaxed way. Exhibitors can also vouch for their most important customers to be able to join the Premium Club. 

On the practical side of the programme, organisers provide visitors with a series of workshops. The Nexus Workshops are geared towards stakeholders tasked with managing the safety and security of a nation. The workshop stages provide a space to share bi-lateral knowledge, expertise and approaches to incident management before, during and post incident. Each day will consist of live demonstrations, interactive workshops, practical presentations and discussion sessions on any given topic. The first day is dedicated to Emergency Planning for Disasters. The Second Day is for Building an incident management response team. The final day covers Incident Prevention, Reporting and Investigation Workshop.
