Ho Chi Minh City takes its place at the centre of Asia’s security world this week, as a record 380 exhibitors aim to catch the attention of trade buyers at the 12th edition of Secutech Vietnam. Displaying best-in-class products in the fields of safety, security and fire, the trade fair takes place at the Saigon Convention and Exhibition Centre from 14 – 16 August 2019. According to Ms Regina Tsai, the Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd, the fair has adapted to accommodate emerging vertical markets: “Thanks to the traction of Industry 4.0, a new wave of IoT adoption is taking place in Vietnam. With this in mind, we have introduced the ‘Smart Factory Conference’ to the fair’s fringe programme. This adds to what is already an exciting exchange platform for the smart city and smart building markets.” 11% rise in number of exhibitors As the market for security products in Vietnam has matured, exhibitor participation has risen for six consecutive yearsBy further easing the process of doing business in Vietnam, the fair continues to gather support from both industry associations and new exhibitors. In fact, as the market for security products in Vietnam has matured, exhibitor participation has risen for six consecutive years. In celebration of the fair’s expansion, Ms Tsai added: “This year we are delighted to be recording an 11% rise in exhibitor numbers. Last year, the fair attracted 13,800 trade visitors, and at the coming edition we are anticipating yet another strong turnout from system integrators, distributors, consultants and related trade buyers.” Solution providers from 21 countries and regions will showcase their products across 11,000 sqm of exhibition space at the fair, including the likes of Avigilon, Bosch, Hanwha Techwin, Hitron, KPS, LILIN, PHUC BINH, Nha An Toan (a distributor of Hikvision and ABB products), and ZKTeco. Demand for energy efficient solutions In the smart building sector, demand for connected IoT products can be broken down into four main categories: smart homes, smart apartment buildings, smart commercial buildings and smart factories. Security applications are a key demand, but buyers also seek solutions for energy savings and management efficiency. With this in mind, Secutech Vietnam’s concurrent SMABuilding Vietnam event provides a sourcing hub for related products such as building management platforms and energy-saving systems, as well as access control systems, biometrics, IP surveillance solutions and intercoms. Connecting with suppliers of smart building The Pavilion will provide destination for buyers to connect with suppliers of smart building and security technologyOne of numerous highlights of the event is the Singapore Pavilion. As a leader in cloud services and IoT technology, Singapore is home to some of the world’s premier digital solution providers. The Pavilion will provide a one-stop destination for buyers to connect with suppliers of smart building and security technology, including ASME, Force 21, Kedacom, Multron, Servo Dynamic, Ubergard, and Worldtags. Another cluster of international brands is the Shenzhen Pavilion. Organised by the Shenzhen Circular Economy Association and the Shenzhen Municipal Commerce Bureau, the pavilion gathers more than 20 leading suppliers to showcase up-to-date solutions not only for smart building and smart home, but also transportation. In addition to excellent product variety, trade visitors will be able to gather relevant industry information at the fair. In fact, a series of conferences and seminars ensure that visitors will leave with up-to-date market intelligence in the areas of smart factories and fire & safety. Implementing appropriate fire systems The sector draws demand from a variety of different verticals, including high rise buildings, factories and industrial parksIn collaboration with Houselink JSC, the new Smart Factory Conference has been introduced to meet the needs of contractors, consultants, investors, end users and other related stakeholders from Vietnam’s expanding smart factory sector. Shining a spotlight on Industry 4.0, topics will include security solutions for industrial zones, factory automation management as well as the implementation of appropriate fire systems for industrial premises. Bringing the full fraternity of regional fire safety stakeholders together is the concurrent ‘Fire Safety and Rescue Vietnam’ event. International exhibitors will be trying to capitalise on the high demand in the Vietnamese fire safety sector, as rising awareness has raised demand for higher standard equipment. The sector draws demand from a variety of different verticals, including high rise buildings, factories and industrial parks. Thanks to the current construction boom, real estate developers in particular are investing in high standard products for their latest projects. Fire safety products at the event Products that can be located at the event include fire trucks, personal protection equipment and sprinkler systemsThe Korea Fire Institute and the Japan Pavilion are two international pavilions offering a wide selection of quality products including fire extinguishers, alarms, rescue equipment and first aid kits. The pavilions join a total of 28 exhibitors, both domestic and international, such as Akao, Hatsuta, Jinwoo, Kobayashi, Masteco, Rezontech, and Shilla Fire. Other products that can be located at the event include fire trucks, personal protection equipment and sprinkler systems. Supplementing the event is the ‘Fire and Safety Seminar’, which will provide information about new technologies and best practices for disaster prevention in factories and buildings. To help visitors navigate Secutech Vietnam’s wide range of products and solutions, a business matching service will run throughout the three days of the fair. Based on vertical markets, or specific products of interest, catered tours will ensure that trade buyers connect with the most appropriate suppliers for their business needs. Visitors can pre-register for the service online, or visit the business matching centre during the fair.
Boon Edam Inc., a pioneer in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, announces they are emphasising the theme of tailgating mitigation and integration in booth #1103 at the GSX (formerly ASIS) exhibition in Chicago, Illinois from September 10-12. GSX is an annual event that brings together over 20,000 participants from across the security profession for a week of networking, educational opportunities and discovering the latest security solutions. Boon Edam is also the official turnstile sponsor of the show. Appropriate entrance solution Security entrances coupled with access technologies provide a complete solution Access technologies, such as card readers and biometric devices, are critical for controlling entry to secure areas within a building. However, these solutions are only effective at mitigating tailgating when coupled with the appropriate entrance solution. Swinging doors do not stop one authorised person from opening the door and then holding it open for a number of others. Security entrances coupled with access technologies provide a complete solution that ensures only one person can enter per valid authorisation. The following solutions will be on display in Boon Edam’s booth: Lifeline Speedlane Swing Optical Turnstile: The industry’s slimmest optical turnstile will feature a custom, integrated pedestal that incorporates the MorphoWave™ touchless fingerprint technology from IDEMIA. This solution enables high throughput with the enhanced security of rapid biometric identification, all in a stylish, cohesive design. New! Lifeline Boost Access Control Pedestal: The Boost is a brand new, stylish access control pedestal designed by Boon Edam to complement the popular Lifeline optical turnstile series. The Boost will include the latest version of Essex’s credential card reader, now with optical Bluetooth and OSDP capability, the iRox-T with BLE expands for HID Global’s Mobile Access solutions. Tourlock 180+90 Security Revolving Door: The entrance of choice for the Fortune 500, the Tourlock will feature an AMAG Symmetry card reader to demonstrate access control integration paired with the door’s uniquely high, bi-directional throughput and its ability to prevent tailgating and piggybacking without manned supervision. Circlelock Mantrap Portal: Offering the highest level of security available in an entrance, the Circlelock security portal prevents intrusion into the most sensitive areas such as data centers. The portal will be configured to demonstrate two-factor authentication: an AMAG Symmetry card reader on the outside of the portal conducts the initial authorisation, while facial recognition provides instant authentication inside the portal. The secure, edge-based facial recognition access control device by Alcatraz, called the Rock, can also be experienced at their booth (GSX booth #1047). BoonConnect Software: An IP-addressable, proprietary software system providing diagnostic and configuration tools for the Tourlock security revolving door and Circlelock mantrap portal. Users can remotely access door operations and events using devices such as a tablet, laptop or smartphone via a secured corporate network. Upcoming tailgating season Boon Edam is celebrating its position as the market pioneer for security entrances, according to a report by IHS Markit®, with a tailgating-themed prize giveaway. All visitors to GSX are invited to participate by visiting booth #1103 during show hours. Participants will have the opportunity to win a variety of prizes that will help them make the most of the upcoming tailgating season: the Big Green Egg® grill, a YETI® cooler and more. Winners will be selected at random after the exhibition, and an announcement will be made to all participants via email by Friday, September 27.

Created for marketing professionals working in the security industry, Security Sessions is a new forum for peers to share knowledge, skills and best practice. The group meets quarterly and aims to provide participants with actionable tips to implement in their own marketing strategies. With representatives attending from manufacturers, suppliers, installers, integrators and consultants, discussions cover the challenges being faced by the security industry and the opportunities presented by the constantly evolving marketing landscape. Participants also have the opportunity to extend their understanding of specialist areas - such as SEO, creativity and lateral thinking, optimising video for social, content marketing and much more – with an expert guest speaker invited to each session to share insight into their particular specialism. Topics include on-page SEO, site security The Security Sessions event is taking place on 10th September in London covering the topics of on-page SEO, site securitySet up by Charlotte Waters and Michelle Morton - founders of Morton Waters Communications Ltd - in early 2019, the next Security Sessions event is taking place on 10th September in London covering the topics of on-page SEO, site security and speed optimisation. Commenting on the launch of Security Sessions, Michelle said: “Having worked in marketing in the security industry, and other B2B sectors, for longer than we care to declare, the idea for Security Sessions started when we noticed that there was no specific forum in the security industry to recognise and support the sector’s marketing professionals. We thought it was about time that changed.” “At the beginning of the year, we reached out to our existing network to float the idea and it was received so well that the first meeting took place in April,” adds Michelle. “We’re now busy organising the next one, which will take place in London on 10 September.”
