The security industry is currently experiencing huge growth. The drastic increase in teleworking has fuelled the IT security market in particular. Companies want to rely on home offices on a permanent basis and must invest in a secure digital infrastructure. At the same time, the protection of highly sensitive areas such as clinics, pharmaceutical companies or vaccination centres has become more relevant. The desire of the security industry to be able to meet and exchange ideas in person again is great – the best conditions, therefore, for Security Essen. After a break due to the pandemic, it will offer the security industry a top-class presentation platform from 20 to 23 September 2022 at Messe Essen. Innovations and new products in the field of electronic and mechanical security technology are just as much the focus as cybersecurity and fire protection. The extensive accompanying program guarantees new input and profitable contacts.

“The topic of safety affects numerous areas of life and work and has taken on new dimensions. The industry therefore has a great need to exchange ideas in person and to present new products. We are pleased to once again be able to provide a top-class platform for this with Security Essen. The measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic are taking effect, so that we can plan a fair with an international orientation for autumn 2022,” stated Oliver P. Kuhrt, Managing Director of Messe Essen. Around 500 exhibitors are expected at the new start, more than half of them from abroad. Divided into the areas of video; access, mechatronics, mechanics, systems & perimeter; fire, burglary & systems as well as services & digital networking security, the entire spectrum of the security industry will be represented.

One fair – Many options

Interested exhibitors have various options for becoming part of Security Essen – whether individually with their own stand or on a joint stand. Companies wishing to participate for the first time can book a time- and cost-saving complete package. This includes, among other things, stand construction, 20 admission tickets for customers and a discount on advertising space in the fairground.

Young founders from Germany receive funding from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy if they participate in the joint stand of the “Young Innovative Companies”. International start-ups can secure a place in the “International Start-up Area” and thus easily address potential investors and customers of tomorrow.

Target group-specific fair programme

A target group-specific supporting programme rounds off the fair. For example, the Digital Networking Security Congress will focus on comprehensive information on the topics of security in networks, IT security, interfaces and cyber threats. The Fire Protection Forum and special tours for architects and planners are also organised. The best innovations from all exhibition areas will be honoured with the Security Innovation Award.
