Secutech marks its 20th edition as a driving force behind the progression of the security market. The show will open its doors from 12 – 14 April 2017 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre. In response to surging demand for all-round solutions for the smart home, energy management and fire & safety sectors, this edition, covering 30,694 sqm of exhibition space, will house 372 exhibitors from 11 countries and regions across the whole supply chain under one roof. About 26,000 OEMs, ODMs, system integrators and buyers from all over the world are expected to source the most recent integration between conventional security products and IoT solutions at the fair.
With a track record of keeping abreast of market trends and fostering cross-sector partnerships, Secutech is therefore widely regarded as an effective trading platform in the safety and security industry. A substantial number of themed pavilions are set up to offer business opportunities as well as intelligent solutions in vertical markets, including transportation, retail, industrial, building and home in this edition.
Ms Regina Tsai, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Media Business Ltd, spoke on the benefits visitors can gain at the show: “Entering its 20th year, Secutech has drawn on past experience to encapsulate the essence of the fast-changing safety and security industry. On one hand, with so many brands and products visitors can source all up-to-date technologies essential to their business. On the other hand, fringe events can broaden their understanding of the market development.”
At Secutech, technology-based events are equally comprehensive as compared to the products showcased. During the three-day show, there are the second edition of the System Integration Forum and the Composec Forum. The former brings participants together for cross-industry collaboration and the latter underlines the four primary technology trends in security components, smart sensors, the CPU/GPU/MCU (Microcontroller unit) platform and wireless transmission technology.
