The World's Leading Fair for Civil Security - Security Essen with new content for the security industry

Six-pillar concept will be extended to new areas and include more demonstrations

Intelligent video surveillance, secure data and electronic border protection - modern societies are being confronted with new challenges every day. Security Essen will present convincing solutions from September 27 to 30, 2016. More than 1,000 exhibitors from 40 Nations will redefine the standard of civil security at Messe Essen. And the signs continue to indicate growth: The booking level is now already higher than in the comparative period before the preceding event. Furthermore, extras with regard to subjects and live events are already emerging.

So that manufacturers and users will come together quickly and in a perfectly matching way in spite of all the diversity of the subjects, the world's leading fair for civil security will place its faith in the proven six-pillar concept in 2016, too: Fire Prevention, IT Security, Mechanical Security Technology, Electronic Security Technology, Services and Outdoor Site Security will portray the exhibition portfolio. Here, it will be possible to find not only the latest trends in the sector but also again new subjects which the people responsible for Security Essen will incorporate after intensive dialogue with the sector.

Security Essen – What is new in 2016

The world's leading fair will give more room to constructional fire prevention - from fire prevention concepts via escape route planning and equipment right up to extinguishing water installations. Additional live demonstrations on the entire fair site will offer totally new attention-grabbing presentation possibilities to the exhibition area.

In the IT Security area, the protection of critical infrastructures will be the focus of interest to an even greater extent. In times of Industry 4.0, companies are collecting, storing and evaluating ever greater data quantities. Secure big data management will thus be a top subject for Security Essen. Therefore, IT Security and Economic Protection will be two new categories of the Security Innovation Award with which Messe Essen honours outstanding innovations in the exhibition portfolio.

With regard to Mechanical Security Technology, the trend is increasingly heading towards complex system solutions with IT or electronic components. The top subjects at Security Essen 2016 will thus include integrated solutions for intruder protection. Intelligent video surveillance will be a central exhibition area in Electronic Security Technology, just like smart border solutions. These will relate not only to technical possibilities but also to correct data protection.

In the subject field of security services, the leading German associations, Bundesvereinigung Deutscher Geld- und Wertdienste e. V. (BDGW - "Federal Association of German Money and Valuables Services") and Bundesverband der Sicherheitswirtschaft (BDSW - "Federal Association of the Security Industry"), will once more be involved with large event areas. Since there is an ever greater need for solutions for the security of employees and corporate know-how abroad in the globalised world, the complex of subjects relating to global travel security will be extended in 2016.

The Outdoor Site Security exhibition area will concentrate to a greater extent not only on the protection of companies but also on the protection of high-security areas such as embassies or airports. In this respect, Security Essen will once more set standards for active and passive security systems.
