(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The 16th edition of Intersec will open its doors next week with more than 20 per cent increase in exhibitor participation another record-breaking edition, according to its organiser Epoc Messe Frankfurt

The largest international trade and networking event for safety, security and fire protection serving the region is scheduled from January 19-21, 2014 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre

This was announced at a news conference on Tuesday. The briefing was attended by Major General Dr Mohammed bin Fahad, director general of Dubai Police Academy; Lt. Col. Jamal Ahmed Ibrahim, director of Preventive Safety Department, Dubai Civil Defence; Col. Humaid Mohammed Alansari, director, Sports Affairs Department, General Department of Community Services, Dubai Police; Mark Horton, Regional Sales Director, G4S and Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Epoc Messe Frankfurt

Speaking at the Press conference, Dr Mohammed bin Fahad said: "Intersec is today one of the world's most significant exhibitions for the safety and security industry. Dubai aspires to be a global leader in the exhibition industry with its strategic location, world-class services, infrastructure and facilities. The emirate is a role model in sustainable development and we are confident that Intersec 2014 will be a big success and look forward to further growth in the coming editions." Spreading over 44,000 sqm of exhibition space the three-day exhibition and conference will bring together 1,210 exhibitors from 54 countries, a 22 per cent increase on last year. The continuing success of Intersec underlines the growing demand in the region for the latest in safety and security measures

According to market research conducted by interational security solutions group G4S, the total Middle East security market is estimated at 6.3 billion with a CAGR of 10 per cent expected in the next four years. Intersec organisers expect this growth is being driven by the ongoing development the region is experiencing, particularly in terms of infrastructure. The surge in demand is also apparent at Intersec where there is a steady increase in the number of leading international safety and security majors interested in doing business in the region. "Dubai is in an excellent position and this is helping to drive our business forward. The recent announcement of Dubai's success for Expo 2020 further reinforces its stance as a business hub. Intersec 2014 is not only larger and more representative than past editions, but it will also highlight a number of key issues and concerns that are vital to the regional security community," said Ahmed Pauwels, chief executive officer of organiser, Epoc Messe Frankfurt

"The greater Middle East region is of increasing significance to us as one of the world's leading security groups. As awareness spreads of the need to be prepared for eventualities and threats of various kinds in today's uncertain environment, events such as Intersec serve a fundamental role in bringing together leading international suppliers and service providers with clients from across the region," said Mark Horton, regional sales director of G4S

With as many as 13 official country pavilions from China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Taiwan, United Kingdom and USA as well as debut pavilions from Dubai SME and Techtextil, Intersec 2014 will serve up a comprehensive range of security and safety solutions for the trade visitor
