The premium sourcing and networking platform is set to fully occupy the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center in Ho Chi Minh City. The 11th edition will take place from 16 – 18 August 2018 as strong growth in Vietnam’s economy continues to raise demand for safety and security products.
The 2018 edition is expected to surpass the attendance figures of previous years as over 300 exhibitors (2017: 270) are estimated to partake in the show in over 10,000 sqm of floor space. A large number of international exhibitors and visitors are also expected to be attracted by the opportunities offered at Secutech Vietnam.
Products from the categories of professional security, fire and safety to smart home and home automation will be on display to buyers, distributors and system integrators
Fire safety and home automation
Solution providers at this year’s show will come from more than 20 countries and regions, including Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, the UAE, the UK, the US and Vietnam. Products from the categories of professional security, fire and safety to smart home and home automation will be on display to buyers, distributors and system integrators coming from industries including property, construction, infrastructure, and manufacturing.
“With friendly FDI policies and low import taxes, Vietnam has become a major manufacturing hub with the fastest economic growth in the ASEAN region. In tandem with this growth, we have seen rising demands for security and fire safety products to meet the growing security needs in industries such as manufacturing and construction. Vietnam’s booming property market has also created a huge appetite for products in the category of smart home and home automation,” said Ms Regina Tsai, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd.
She continued: “All of these factors combined have created significant business opportunities for both suppliers and buyers at this year’s show, which we expect will exceed all other years in terms of visitor and exhibitor numbers.”
