Excellent prospects for Sicur 2018
Sicur has set itself many objectives for its 2018 edition: growing in representativeness, enhancing its power to convene professionals, both nationally and internationally, and elevating the relevance and visibility that it has achieved as the sector’s meeting point.
The objectives of the event organised by IFEMA, which will be held from 20 to 23 February 2018 at Feria de Madrid, seem closer than ever to coming true. Reconfirming this possibility is the outcome of the 2016 edition, with its +16% rise in participation and a total of 1,332 companies exhibiting in a surface area of 27,984 m2, which was up +24% from the previous edition. Likewise, visitor turnout took a positive upswing with 42,294 professionals (+8.5%) coming from 76 countries.
The above-mentioned figures were achieved thanks to the strong support of the security sector’s main associations, which include TECNIFUEGO/AESPI, the Spanish Fire Protection Association, chairing the organising committee; ASEPAL, the Association of Personal Protection Equipment Companies; AES, the Spanish Association of Security Companies, and APROSER, the Association of Private Security Service Companies, as the three vice-chairs. Also part of this Committee are the main associations representing the world of private security, occupational safety, prevention, and state security forces and agencies… a comprehensive work group that is focused on fostering greater involvement of the industrial sector serviced by Sicur, while improving the interaction between exhibitors and the organization, so that the fair and its activities are effective.
Sicur will organize a themed exhibition, dedicating Hall 10 to Security, with the latest in physical security, intrusion detection systems and access control, surveillance, private security solutions, equipment for the public security forces, and the latest technological advances in the protection of property. Hall 8, instead, will host the fire prevention and emergencies sector, which will feature the latest on passive and active fire protection, as well as solutions to improve response times in emergency situations. Finally, Halls 4 and 6 shall be dedicated to the occupational safety sector, with the latest proposals in personal protection equipment, as well as in preventive and occupational health measures.
As usual, Sicur will also be an important stage for the dissemination and analysis of the sector’s latest developments, thanks to a programme of dedicated talks offered by the Sicur Forum, with discussions, exhibitions, demonstrations, and product tests. Finally, a special New Products Gallery will offer an interesting overview of research, development and innovation work undertaken within the sector.
