Security Essen 2018 preview

07 August 2018

Messe Essen will host the international security and fire prevention sectors for the biennial Security Essen event taking place from the 25-28 September 2018,

Security Essen will become the meeting place of the international security and fire prevention sectors. The leading event will take place on Messe Essen's modernised site for the first time, organised in a way appropriate for the market in six subject areas. In this respect, Security Essen will set standards with targeted focusing on digital security. Exhibitors from the cyber security and economic security area will present their solutions to visitors. In top-class conferences, experts will also pass on their knowledge relating to all aspects of this challenge which is becoming ever more urgent.

CEO of Messe Essen Oliver P. Kuhrt said, "This year, we have sharpened the profile of Security Essen. The trade fair has become considerably more digital, more modern and more interactive.

“Due to the optimised hall layout, we are offering our exhibitors and visitors the best possible experience at the fair with short paths and direct communication."

The ever stronger focus on networked products and solutions will be shown in the fire prevention section.

Fire detection technology specialist NSC Sicherheitstechnik will combine fields of expertise and will offer fire detection technology and speech alarming in one system. The Wagner Group will introduce, amongst other items, a hazard management system which unites and controls the most diverse systems relevant to security. In a hazardous situation such as a fire, it helps those responsible to keep an overview and to be able to react in a reasonable way as quickly as possible. UTC Fire & Security will be in situ with its wide product portfolio for fire detection technology.

Digital security

Security Essen will be the ideal platform to obtain extensive information about developments in the sector and to establish new contacts. The comprehensive supporting programme will offer numerous possibilities. At the Public Security Forum in Hall 8, the visitors will experience digital security technologies for public spaces from the areas of sensors/IoT, cyber security and surveillance. The products and the solutions will be installed in four different building scenarios (town hall, school, hospital and library) and it will be possible to test them extensively. The target group will consist of municipal decision takers and planners of public spaces. Lectures and discussions will make the Public Security Forum complete.

Digital security technology is bringing more comfort but, at the same time, companies are making themselves vulnerable to attacks by hackers and data thieves. The new Cyber Security Conference in Hall 8 will deal with these problems and will concentrate on transferring knowledge and exchanging experience on all four days of Security Essen. It is planned to include contributions which, in a form close to practice, will deal with situations relating to all aspects of digital security in the subject areas of "Chances & Risks of Cyber Security", "Connected Building - Security in the Building of the Future" as well as "Digital Possibilities for Identification".

The Thursday of the fair will be characterised by fire prevention and fighting. On the Fire Prevention Day, the Essen Fire Service and exhibitors will show elaborate rescue measures and innovations which prevent fires or help to fight them effectively.

Back-to-back lectures

At the Security Experts Forum in Hall 2, a continuous programme with more than 90 presentations will take place during the entire period of the fair. Visitors will obtain information and solutions for all subjects at the fair: Services, access, mechatronics, mechanics and systems, video, fire, intrusion and systems, perimeter protection as well as cyber security and economic security. The programme will start with an exciting keynote lecture every morning and will finish with a live demonstration in the evening.

Security Essen will offer all the visitors a helpful app which will make their visits to the fair even more efficient. Amongst other features, it will include the latest list of exhibitors with booth numbers and contact data, an overview of the supporting programme as well as a hall plan for better orientation. Two weeks before the event, the app will be available for downloading free of charge from the Google Play Store (Android) or the Apple App Store (iOS).

Day tickets to attend cost 41 euros and a ticket for all four days costs 10 euros.
