Global players are counting down for the inaugural edition of Saudi Arabia’s foremost security, safety, and fire protection trade show in Jeddah, as exhibition space reaches full capacity ahead of the opening in May 2017.
The inaugural edition of Intersec Saudi Arabia will feature more than 130 exhibitors from 25 countries when it opens from May 2-4, 2017 at the Jeddah Centre for Forums & Events.
According to analysts Frost & Sullivan, Saudi’s spend on commercial security, homeland security and fire safety, was worth US$5.4 billion in 2016, comprising a 42 per cent share of the Middle East market that year.
The biggest names in the business signed on as soon as organisers Messe Frankfurt Middle East and Al-Harithy Company for Exhibitions (ACE Group) officially announced the show last year, which is also backed by government authorities the Saudi Ministry of Health and the Saudi Safety & Security Department.
Bristol from the UK, and German manufacturer Draeger will share centre stage, as they turn the spotlight on their firefighting clothing and fire protection services respectively.
Rizwan Ullal, Events Marketing Lead at Corodex Trading, the distributor of Bristol said: “Bristol looks forward to participating at the first edition of Intersec Saudi Arabia and considers it a vital platform where experts from all around the world are able to share new technologies, projects and partnerships.”
Emad El Lahham, Head of Marketing at Draeger Arabia, added: “Draeger Arabia is happy to be launch partner of the very first edition of the Intersec Saudi Arabia. We believe it’s the right platform for us to showcase our solutions for fire services with a portfolio covering all aspects considering pre-incident, incident and post-incident solutions.”
