IFSEC Security Exhibition Goes Global

June 26, 2006
Popular UK-based show heads to India for 2007

IFSEC, the world’s leading security exhibition, has announced details of its latest development, IFSEC India. Taking place from 25-27 October 2007 at Pragati Maidan in Delhi, IFSEC India will cater for the whole of the South Asian region, one of the fastest growing markets in the world.

IFSEC India 2007 is a joint venture between IFSEC organiser CMP Information and CMP Asia’s Mumbai office. With IFSEC’s 34 years of experience in the security industry, and CMP Asia’s knowledge of the local market, the event promises to be a huge success.

The Indian security market is estimated to be worth in excess of US$500 millionh and industry experts estimate that this is growing at around 30% per year. The market is particularly unique due to the lack of old legacy security systems in operation. It is therefore at the forefront of technological advances and the market is eager to embrace the latest security, fire and building managements systems and solutions available. All these areas will be incorporated into the new event.

Event director, James Blue, commented on the launch: “Recognising the wealth of business opportunities present in India’s rapidly developing and largely unpenetrated security solutions sector, IFSEC India will provide the ideal location for the most innovative and dynamic security providers to meet thousands of high quality visitors from all over the region. Extending the IFSEC brand to India was a natural progression and an obvious choice for our first foray into overseas markets. We expect to announce some more exciting developments shortly.”

As well as numerous feature areas, IFSEC India 2007 will also include a comprehensive educational programme with a host of free seminar sessions and a conference covering the hot security topics from a variety of angles.

IFSEC India 2007 will be co-located with Internal Security (IS), which will also take place at Pragati Maidan from 25-27 October 2007. IS is aimed at the police and paramilitary sector which is currently undergoing an extensive modernisation programme. Further announcements will follow soon.

Entry to IFSEC India 2007 is free and the latest event information and news is available at www.ifsec.co.uk/india.
