The new logo of Security illustrates: more than ever, fire protection is one of the decisive subjects in the security sector. Security Essen will now give this section more space. For the first time, one complete hall will be reserved for suppliers in the security segment of fire protection. "Fire Prevention" will be the title under which the fire protection sector will congregate in Hall 12.
Compact in one place - this concept convinced the exhibitors immediately. Over 100 companies and leading associations will present their products and services in the fire protection hall. The exhibitors will originate from the fields of installation-technology fire protection as well as constructional and mobile fire protection. At Security 2008, they will offer the visitors the opportunity, in short paths, to obtain extensive information about the newest developments in fire fighting. From constructional fire protection measures to active extinguishing technology, it will be shown how a fire incident can be prevented from turning into a fire disaster.
Moreover, the exhibitors will organise a forum in which they will introduce their new products and processes to the visitors in brief lectures. No matter whether security officers, decision-takers for house services or plant security and no matter whether planning offices, architects or facility managers, Security will become even more interesting for the target groups thanks to this focusing. Due to the stronger emphasis on fire protection, the fair will also gain access to new visitor groups and is expecting more guests.
Messe Essen has developed the new concept together with its partner, Bundesverband Technischer Brandschutz (bvfa - the "Federal Association for Technical Fire Protection"). As the decisive association for preventive and averting technical fire protection in Germany, bvfa represents around 125 companies at the moment.
