Messe Frankfurt New Era news
A significant platform that brings together safety and security industry players under one roof, Secutech India 2021 is set to be held in September at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. The edition will be a hotbed of strong business opportunities and knowledge-exchange among channel players. With the combined expertise of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Ltd in organising security and fire safety shows across Asia, Messe Frankfurt India is set to host the ninth edition of Secutech India from 16 – 18 September 2021 in Mumbai. The collaboration between the two companies will strengthen the influence of the fair and provide solutions to resolve the safety and security issues in India. Advanced fire protection As a brand, Secutech boasts of a legacy that spans close to 30 years, affirming its long-standing reputation and significance in the global safety and security industry. The new edition of Secutech India is thus poised to be an unmissable fair as it will bring unforeseen business opportunities to industry players. The three-day fair will showcase the industry’s most advanced technological solutions in IBMS The three-day fair will showcase the industry’s most advanced technological solutions in IBMS, Smart Cities, Home Automation, Surveillance Solutions, BFSI Cybersecurity, Advanced Fire Protection Systems, and IoT applications from a fleet of companies. Sampling these exhibits will be major players such as chief security officers, chief fire officers, security-fire safety heads, system integrators, installers, as well as dealers and distributors. Highly effective platform Commenting about the prospects of the show in the wake of new opportunities, Mr Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd, stated: “The global disruption created by the pandemic has led to a strong demand for intelligent safety and security systems that can assure protection without any human intervention.” “Thus propelled by favourable market trends, Secutech India 2021 will prove to be a highly effective platform for companies providing safety and security products to broaden their market reach and expand their client base significantly.” Strong business direction Elaborating further on the value of the exhibition, Ms Regina Tsai, General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd, said: “As the very first edition of the fair since the pandemic, Secutech India 2021 holds immense value for all its stakeholders.” Businesses attending the fair will be able to reconnect face-to-face with their existing clients" “Businesses attending the fair will be able to reconnect face-to-face with their existing clients and gain an opportunity to meet new ones under a secured environment. Apart from showcasing the latest technology in safety and security, the platform will allow both hosts and attendees to exchange ideas and insights that may enable them to gain strong business direction in the new normal.” Building smart cities While the need to implement protection protocols due to the pandemic is channelling new demands for security and surveillance systems, the government’s long-term plan to build smart cities will continue to favour the safety and security technology industry even in years to come. Organised under strict observance of health and safety parameters, the ninth edition of Secutech India will provide a strong platform for the industry to meet potential clients and strengthen their market base.
To safeguard the wellbeing of its participants in the wake of the recent Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Messe Frankfurt has announced the deferral of the upcoming edition of Secutech in Taipei, the company’s event for the safety and security industry. The event was originally scheduled from 22 - 24 April 2020. The announcement follows a decision on 30 January 2020 by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to list the COVID-19 outbreak as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. This was followed on 11 February with a statement issued by Mayor, New Taipei City, Hou You-Yi, urging the cancellation of large-scale indoor events in order to minimise the public health risk posed by COVID-19. Rescheduling of high-profile exhibitions In the intervening time, a number of high-profile exhibitions in Nangang Exhibition Centre and other parts of Taipei have been rescheduled. Secutech’s brand of popular road-shows will take place across Taiwan during 2020 Commenting on the decision, Ms Regina Tsai, General Manager, Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd said, “Safeguarding the wellbeing of our stakeholders is always our top priority. Accordingly, we have decided to take appropriate measures to support the local government’s efforts to counter the COVID-19 outbreak.” “We have tried our best to find new dates for Secutech 2020, however we have so far been unable to find an adequate solution for our stakeholders.” Secutech deferred to April 2021 “Although a timeslot for relocating Secutech in the second half of 2020 is available, given its close proximity to the next edition of Secutech, and the marketing activities of our exhibitors already scheduled later this year, this timeslot does not provide good value for our stakeholders. Therefore we have to defer the show to April 2021.” To ensure that domestic business can be sustained throughout this period, Secutech’s brand of popular road-shows will take place across Taiwan during 2020, with dates to be announced in due course. Furthermore, Messe Frankfurt New Era will continue its extensive on-line marketing campaigns to help Secutech exhibitors maximise their market exposure for the remainder of the year.
Attracting trade visitors from across the subcontinent, the region’s most influential trade fair for the security industry, Secutech India, is scheduled to return for its 9th edition from 7 – 9 May 2020 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. With exhibitor registration still open, the fair has already attracted more than 350 of the world’s leading security brands with less than three months remaining before it commences. The 2020 exhibition will feature Axis Communication, CP Plus, Hikvision, ZKTeco, Infinova, Matrix, Toshiba and many more. Security devices and turnkey solutions The 2020 edition of Secutech India is set to reflect the country’s digital transformation Detailing the business value of the fair, Ms Regina Tsai, the General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd said: “Catering to local market requirements such as cost efficiency and a need for fast project implementation, Secutech India assembles the full range of security devices and turnkey solutions under a single roof. Benefiting from its position in Mumbai, India’s commercial centre, last year the fair attracted more than 20,000 buyers travelling from across India’s main regions, and we are looking forward to welcoming even more business this coming May.” The 2020 edition of Secutech India is set to reflect the country’s digital transformation. IP cameras are in high demand from SMEs, retail and the residential segment, while biometric access control systems are also gaining popularity in offices and at border controls, with users gradually favouring contactless systems such as facial recognition above fingerprint biometrics. Core security solutions In the view of Ms Tsai, this year’s fair is taking place at a favourable time for the regional industry: “The government aims to transform India into an electronics export hub, which will open up new opportunities for component manufacturers catering to the local manufacturing sector. But just as importantly, as part of India’s proposed Union Budget 2020, infrastructure development across roads, railway, airports, ports, and economic corridors are expected to raise demand for core security solutions including video surveillance, video analytics, biometrics and intruder detection systems." "The governments ‘Digital India’, ‘Smart City Mission’, and ‘Technology Empowerment’ initiatives will also be growth drivers.” Access control in healthcare facilities As a maturing security market, the appetite for knowledge in India is growing" Among many benefits, the ability to make onsite comparisons, conduct meaningful business discussions and view product demonstrations are a few of the show elements that visitor’s to Secutech India value. According to Ms Tsai, business effectiveness is the top priority for the fair’s organisers: “Initiatives such as the ‘Secutech connect’ business matching service which links buyers with exhibitors based on industry background continue to be highly popular, helping us to generate genuine business outcomes for participants.” But beyond business, information exchange is also a priority says Ms Tsai: “As a maturing security market, the appetite for knowledge in India is growing. This is a need that the upcoming edition of Secutech India will cater for with a series of conferences dealing with topics relevant to the local market, including cyber security, smart city digital infrastructure; the convergence of 5G, artificial intelligence, data analytics and the IoT; access control in healthcare facilities, and fire safety in elderly care homes and restaurants.” Personal protection equipment In addition to its core focus on security, Secutech India 2020, in cooperation with the GPS Association of India, will feature a pavilion dedicated to fleet management, vehicle tracking as well as passenger and driver safety. The concurrent ‘Fire and Safety India’ event will also return as the destination for trade buyers to locate the latest firefighting gear, personal protection equipment and smoke detection systems.
