IFSEC India has proved to be a success with over 10,000 security professionals in attendance from around the world
With 11,447 security professionals from all over the globe descending on Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, India, the third IFSEC Indiahas proved to be the most successful yet with 25% more attendees than in 2008.

Opened by the Chief Minister of Delhi Mrs. Sheila Dikshit, IFSEC India 2009 was packed with more than 220 internationally renowned exhibitors and hours of unparalleled educational content to allow visitors to source the latest security solutions and address all their professional needs.

Acting as a catalyst to the rapidly expanding commercial security market in India, this year's exhibition was the most extensive in the event's history with a number of the industry's leading names taking the opportunity to present their latest developments to the market. G4S, Honeywell, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies, Panasonic, Satel, Samsung Electronics, Alba Urmet, Turbo, Hikvision and Sony India were some of the exhibitors.

Feedback from exhibitors at IFSEC India 2009 clearly demonstrate the event's success:

Rehana Qureshi from G4S said: "IFSEC India is where the industry comes together and offers a good opportunity to clients and visitors to come and see where the security industry in India stands today. IFSEC has brought the security industry together in a very good way and taken it to an entirely different level."

Avinash J Trivedi from Sony India said: "IFSEC is very good platform where all the industry people, end users and customers come together and share information about the solutions which they have to offer. Full credit goes to the IFSEC organisers for organising such a good event."

Prasanjeet Bhattacharya from Panasonic India Pvt. Ltd said: "IFSEC this year has developed to a much better scale. The number of visitors is good and enquires are also up to the standard. We were able to meet new customers and are very happy to join IFSEC 2009. We will definitely exhibit at IFSEC 2010."

Education has played a pivotal role at IFSEC India since its inception and 2009 proved no different. Alongside the hugely popular Counter Terror Conference, the event featured free-of-charge technical seminars which allowed visitors to hear about the most recent developments in the industry. Presentations were delivered by a host of renowned companies, including:

Counter Terror India 2009, co-located with IFSEC India 2009, provided a one-day conference packed full of practical advice and solutions in the battle against terrorism throughout India. The conference was opened by Mr Don Randall, Head of Security at the Bank of England, who highlighted the need for harmonisation between the public and private sectors. The conference was officially inaugurated by Mr Gopal Pillai, Secretary to Government India at the Ministry of Home, who outlined the government's goals and the emerging terrorist threats. Splitting into two conference streams, delegates then had the opportunity to hear security best practice and case studies surrounding transport and border control and infrastructure and buildings.

Nigel Luke Brown, Project Director at UBM India, organisers of IFSEC India, said: "Now that we are into the third year of IFSEC India, it was vital that we didn't rest on our laurels and made sure that the programme we were delivering was the right one for both our exhibitors and visitors. It is clear to us that this event was a great success from feedback we received from those at the show. We were also delighted with the launches of Internal Security India and Counter Terror Conference which were both packed out for the entire duration of the events and complimented IFSEC India exceptionally well. We look forward to building on our successes next year."

Simon Parker, Group Director for UBM Live, said: "This year's event saw a real ‘step change' for IFSEC India and it is now firmly established as India's leading event for both homeland and commercial security. Visitor increases of 25% don't come that often and we are delighted that the event surpassed our exhibitors' expectations."
