Intersec 2024 commemorates 25-year milestone edition in the region with record number of exhibitors

The silver jubilee edition of Intersec 2024 will be the largest ever, with increased support from key UAE Government bodies.

Exhibitor numbers are 20% higher than in 2023, reinforcing the importance of safety, security and fire safety technology in the MENA region. The event will place innovation and digital security under the spotlight.

The organiser of Intersec 2024, the world’s leading trade fair for safety, security, and fire protection, is preparing to host the largest edition in the show’s 25-year history. Taking place from 16-18 January 2024 at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), under the theme of ‘Innovating security tech for a quarter century’, the exhibition is expecting a remarkable 20% year-on-year increase in international exhibitor participation, and more than 45,000 trade visitors from around the world travelling to attend the event.

Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the silver jubilee edition of Intersec will host 1,000 exhibitors from more than 60 nations, with around a quarter of these appearing for the first time. Occupying 13 halls at DWTC, the exhibition signifies a 20% growth compared to 2023, reaffirming its status as a critical networking hub for global security, safety, and fire protection industries. Uniting buyers, sellers, and decision-makers, Intersec provides a dynamic nexus for networking, deal-making, and the global unveiling of cutting-edge technology and innovations in Dubai on a global stage.

In particular, every element of Intersec is affiliated with the relevant UAE government entities, demonstrating the commitment of the UAE Government to these important industries. Dubai Police and the Security Industry Regulatory Authority (SIRA) are affiliated with the security sector; Dubai Civil Defence with the Fire & Rescue element of Intersec; while Dubai Municipality supports the safety sector and the Cyber Security Council and Dubai Electronic Security Center (DESC) underscore the importance of the cybersecurity sector.

This year, innovation and digital security will take centre stage at Intersec 2024 as security and safety professionals from around the world look to collaborate, innovate and actively seek new technologies to meet the industry’s rapidly changing needs.

Alex Nicholl, Group Commercial Director at Intersec organiser Messe Frankfurt Middle East, said: “With two months to the largest edition of Intersec, we look forward to providing a platform for bringing the leading industry players together for three days of discovery, networking, knowledge sharing and most of all, driving the industry forward.”
