Industry Relevance

Security Essen has a significant legacy as it’s been going every two years since 1974 at the Messe Essen, which has allowed the trade fair to grow a loyal community consistently. There has never been a dip in attendance, and Security Essen remains the one-stop platform for all the major manufacturers and agencies to unveil their latest products and technologies. The event sees technology evolve by giant leaps, and the current portfolio is quite impressive. Groups on display include transport protection systems, alarm installations, fire alarms, smoke alarms, gas detectors, criminal investigation technology, control, and surveillance equipment and more. Not to mention that organisers offer a comprehensive support program, where the biggest highlight is the Security Experts Forum.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

The crowd that visits Security Essen consist mainly of industry experts, installers and the broader category of participants from the security sector as a whole. The one unifying trait between all these groups is the interest in investment and purchases. Roughly 76% are involved in the bigger decision-making processes at their companies and attend to negotiate contracts. This is, in fact, supported by industry data that shows that sales in Germany alone have risen by 18% in the past two years combined to a staggering 17.2 billion euros. Security Essen functions as a centre for trade visitors in Europe with the biggest representation coming from European Union members, while the overall number of international visitors is steadily growing, now at 40%.
