Secutech India, is set to return from 25 – 27 April 2019 against a backdrop of rising government investment in smart city projects. Jointly organised by Asian Business Exhibition and Conferences Ltd (ABEC) and Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India, the 2019 edition of the fair will introduce a new smart home zone to accommodate India's growing home automation sector.
The show is set to kick off within the context of a positive outlook for the Indian security industry. India's promising surveillance and access control markets, are forecast to grow at an impressive CAGR of approximately 10% and 15% until 2021.
"Thanks to positive market conditions and Secutech India's track record of generating new business within the security industry, over 100 exhibitors have signed up to exhibit at this 8th edition of the fair," said Regina Tsai, Deputy General Manager, Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media. "On top of the commercial security and fire safety sectors, home security solutions are also on the rise. To meet the sourcing requirements of this growing sector, we are delighted to have added a new 'smart home zone' to this year's show floor. Visitors to the zone will find the very latest home video surveillance systems, alarm systems, access control systems and integrated home networks.”
In addition, the show will also welcome the return of the concurrent "Fire and Safety India" event. The event provides coverage to the entire spectrum of fire safety products, including the likes of fire detection and alarm systems, emergency lighting, escape ladders, evacuation equipment and fire protection gear.
The unique concept of the show allows cross over sourcing opportunities on offer between the security, fire safety and smart home sectors. Fair organisers are anticipating a strong turn out from channel buyers. At the previous edition, the fair attracted over 18,000 visitors, including builders, developers, system integrators, distributors, consultants and project owners.
Targeted fringe events set to address India's most important security topics
This year, fair organisers have collaborated with knowledge partners PwC India and MitKat Advisory to design a programme that will tackle the most important issues facing the regional security industry.
One of many highlights is the "Smart Urban Infrastructure – Monitoring & Surveillance Framework" panel discussion, which will take place on the first day of the fair. The panel discussions will focus on the future of India's smart city projects, as well as cyber security, emergency preparedness, and emergency response mechanisms. In addition, the third day of the programme will be dedicated solely to the fire and safety sector, with a series of seminars covering safety solutions for India's densely populated urban areas.
A hands-on training experience for fire safety practitioners and corporate professionals will also feature, in the shape of the "Fire Safety Volunteer Training" program. Run by the State of Maharashtra Fire Services, the training will give participants information on different types of fire-fighting equipment and how to use them correctly during fire incidents. Attendees will also learn about fire safety legislation, fire drills, evacuation procedures, fire safety precautions, and the most common causes of fire.
