Security, safety, and fire protection trade fair Intersec will open doors early next year in Dubai, with organiser Messe Frankfurt Middle East providing a safe and vital environment to reconnect and restart business in 2021.

The 23rd edition of the event will take place from 24-26 January 2021 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), as global players look to get the New Year off to a bright start and re-establish strong business networks.


Intersec 2021 will also signify an important milestone; it will be the first major international security, safety, and fire exhibition to take place since Covid-19 forced countries to shut their borders and impose nationwide lockdowns, leading to the postponement of live events worldwide.

Now, global travel restrictions are easing, and events have ‘relaunched’, both internationally, and in the UAE, which in July 2020 hosted the AI Everything Conference at DWTC, the first physical event at the venue since March 2020.

Intersec’s Patron His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum offered a heartfelt message for participants to the annual three-day event: “For more than 20 years, Intersec has played a pivotal role in the development of the international security, safety, and fire protection industries, and its relevance only grows stronger as we together chart a course toward a post-pandemic world.

“We welcome attendees from across the globe to Intersec’s 23rd edition at the Dubai World Trade Centre, where they can reconnect and position themselves for a commercially successful start to the year. 

“Dubai is Safe, Dubai is Secure, Dubai is Open, and we look forward to welcoming everyone to their second home in January 2021."

At the forefront of returning exhibitors to Intersec 2021 are its key government partners and supporters the Dubai Civil Defence, Dubai Police, the Security Industry Regulatory Agency (SIRA), Dubai Police Academy, and Dubai Municipality.

“We also have a great mix of returning brands and quite a few new brands next year,” said Alexandria Robinson, Intersec’s Show Director. 

“NAFFCO from the UAE, one of the world’s leading producers and suppliers of top-tier firefighting equipment, fire protection equipment, security and safety engineering systems, spearheads our Fire & Rescue exhibitors along with Draeger, Honeywell, and Hochiki. 

“Many of the world’s biggest security brands are also back including Hikvision, Dahua, Pelco, IDIS, and Mobotix, Seagate, Bodet and Infiniteplay. While leading Perimeter and Physical Security players Gunnebo, HS Security, and Arma Kontrol will also be present. 

“The key Safety & Health brands on board include Carrington Textiles, 3M, Jutec, Giasco, and Cofra. And with Homeland Security & Policing there’s names such as Adani, Comelit Group, and Gatekeeper.”
