IFSEC India 2008 announces their co-event Firex India 2008

Following its successful launch in 2007, IFSEC India 2008 will take place from 16-18 October 2008 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, India. The event is South Asia’s leading security exhibition, and this year, will see the launch of Firex India 2008, extending the reach of the already hugely popular International Firex brand in the UK. IFSEC India is part of IFSEC, the world’s leading security and fire exhibition held annually for the past 36 years in Birmingham, attracting more than 32,000 attendees every year.

Together the shows recognise the rapid expansion of the fire and security industries in India, which are growing by around 47% per year, according to research published by the BSIA last year. The decision to launch Firex India follows months of extensive investigation and discussion with the industry.

Simon Parker, Group Director at CMP Information comments, “Rapid market growth and the corresponding increase in production activity make India a logical focus for our continuing global expansion of the fire and security event family. The overall fire protection market in India is worth almost US$339mn, making it a huge area of interest for local and international manufacturers and distributors.”

Mr M. Gandhi, Managing Director at CMP Asia comments, “IFSEC India and Firex India will be the ideal place for end-users from the IT, ITeS, retail, hospitality, residential, industrial plant and health sectors to keep up-to-date with the latest innovations and developments in the fire and security industries across the South Asian region.”

One of India's foremost trade associations, The Fire and Safety Association of India (FSAI) has offered its support for the event for the second year running.

“The management of FSAI and its members are excited about being associated with Firex India 2008 and IFSEC India 2008, which are considered to be premium events in the fire and security sectors. Combined with the strengths of the events and the growth of the FSAI, we will be able to add great value to the Indian fire safety and security industry by sharing knowledge with world leaders from across the globe," comments Arun Khazanchi, President, FSAI. 

The exhibitions will feature over 200 of the world’s leading security and fire manufacturers and distributors, and over 100 hours of educational content, including high level conferences led by experts in their fields. Entitled “Crossing the Rubicon,” the IFSEC India Conference will cover the hottest topics in both the fire and security markets in India. Topics covered will include internal security, IT security, intelligent buildings, fire safety codes and standards and suppression solutions.

“The security market in India is growing at a tremendous rate and there is a continuous demand for high standard security across industries and the Government. IFSEC India 2008 is an exceptional platform that gives an opportunity to security solution companies to showcase various products. The response and reach that we as an exhibitor get here, is impressive, extremely client centric and productive. We are proud to be a part of IFSEC India 2008 and are excited about showcasing our 'next level' of innovations at the exhibition, which we are certain will exceed our expectations,” says David Hudson MBE, Regional President, Group 4 Securicor Pvt Ltd.            

Deepak Thakur, Director South Asia, Honeywell Security comments, “Honeywell will continue to showcase new products and solutions, equipped with state of the art technologies through events such as IFSEC India 2008. This event has been a successful platform for Honeywell to exhibit our domain expertise to our customers across various verticals, year-on-year. We are pleased with our association with such an esteemed exhibition in India.”
