Reaching the milestone of 20 years, Secutech will be held from 12th - 14th April, 2017, at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre. As a business platform of global safety and security industry and one of the most influential exhibitions of its kind in Asia, Secutech will house more than 450 exhibitors spanning over 35,800 sq.m. of exhibition space. To consolidate the show’s prestige as a holistic channel for business and information sharing, a comprehensive fringe programme will be launched to facilitate participants’ navigation in the evolving security ecosystem and the diverse vertical markets.
Emergence of new technologies
Ms Regina Tsai, Deputy General Manager of the show organiser, further elaborated on how Secutech 2017 adapted to the ever-changing technological landscape. “Security ecosystems with the IoT, coinciding with the emergence of new technologies such as big data, cloud computing and machine learning, have bred new business opportunities from the diverse vertical markets and widely expanded product portfolios. However, system integrators are facing challenges like technical integrations, products quality variations, and a lack of comprehensive market understandings. Therefore, the System Integrator Forum and Intelligent Solution Pavilion are the most resourceful platforms for integration and management of the SI supply chain to shed light on these problems,” she explained.
Experts from seven prominent technology firms will address trends, innovative applications, and vertical solutions
System Integrator Forum
The System Integrator Forum will promote cross-industry cooperation driven by the latest technologies of IVS/VCA, automation, biometric, machine learning, security robots, AI and drone. Experts from seven prominent technology firms will address trends, innovative applications, and vertical solutions including:
- Hard-disk drive manufacturer Seagate and engineering consulting firm Parsons Brinckerhoff will explore potential opportunities in the Asian infrastructure market and opportunities and challenges in the new IoT era.
- PA system manufacturer BXB Electronics Co Ltd, video management system providers Milestone and Genetec, big data solution provider Qognify and Ethernet cable supplier EtherWAN will discuss vertical markets and solutions.
A Cross-Border Asian SI Pavilion will be set up at the forum to showcase innovative products and solutions for the interests of top Asian system integrators from over 10 countries and regions.
Translating customer analytics
Meanwhile, the Intelligent Solution Pavilion provides more innovative answers to system integrators, service providers, and end-users in retail sectors, factories, transportation, households, and buildings. The ubiquitous connectivity rewarded by the IoT enhances personalisation, customisation, and the quality of life for all parties to an unprecedented level.
Smart retail allows retailers to translate customer analytics collected from tracking chips, smart shelves, and digital signage screens to reshape in-store experiences for shoppers that suit their interests and preferences.
The smart retail zone is sponsored by AG Neovo, Hikvision, III-IDEAS, NUUO, RetailNext, Soundwin, Sunmoretek and TIIS. Industrial zone and smart factory optimises production by linking assembly-line robots to monitoring systems. This themed zone is sponsored by EtherWAN, Qnap, and Sick. Under intelligent transportation, traffic data are analysed to improve transportation routes and reduce traffic congestion. For car owners, they can even connect their vehicles to access household features such as turning on the lights and adjusting the air conditioning. The intelligent building zone is co-organised by TTIA and sponsored by Dahua, EtherWAN, Seagate, and V5.
Other fringe events include CompoSec and Secutech Awards that display innovative solutions and new insights
Intelligent image monitoring
Other fringe events include CompoSec and Secutech Awards that display innovative solutions and new insights. The former is a forum highlighting four technology trends in the area of R&D. Award-winning suppliers in the latter will display and review the next generation 4K UHD intelligent image monitoring performance through their demonstration.
Secutech is organised by Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd and is held concurrently with SMAhome Expo and Fire & Safety.
