Perimeter Protection 2018 will be bigger than ever
Already more space reserved than in 2016
Currently being planned: new special area “Drone detection & defence”
The exhibition centre Nuremberg will once again be the meeting point for the security sector from 16 to 18 January 2018. That is when Perimeter Protection, International Exhibition for Perimeter Protection, Fencing and Building Security, will open its doors for the fifth time. The trade visitors can once more look forward to the presentation of mechanical and electronic systems for outdoor perimeter protection in 2018. This holistic approach is what makes Perimeter Protection unique. New this year: the special area dedicated to the subject of drone detection & defence. The Perimeter Protection Congress – organised by the Association for Security Technology (VfS) – will again run parallel to the exhibition on the first two days. This is where guests will have the opportunity to hear high-calibre speakers from industrial companies and planning offices discuss optimal exterior security for the fourth time.
According to Alexander Stein, project manager of Perimeter Protection, the preparations for the exhibition could not be going any better: “The exhibition team is currently working flat out – and with much success. Half a year before the exhibition begins, we have already allocated almost 4,700 square metres space to exhibitors. That is more space than the 2016 exhibition covered altogether. Visitors can thus look forward to an even more comprehensive range of active and passive security technology.” With regards to the number of exhibitors, there is also positive news to report – significantly more companies than in summer two years ago have already secured themselves a stand at the exhibition. The international proportion of exhibitors is also much greater. “This is a fantastic development”, concludes Stein.
New special area “Drone detection & defence” currently being planned
Stein also believes that the new special area dedicated to the subject of drone detection & defence – which is currently being designed – will be a highlight: “Drone defence is now an important aspect in perimeter security. Appropriate measures are essential, especially for protecting critical infrastructure. We hope to pick up on this important subject with our special area which will be positioned at the heart of all exhibition activities.” Interested companies should get in touch with the Perimeter Protection team as soon as possible if they wish to secure themselves an attractive stand location. This positive development once again confirms the successful concept of Perimeter Protection: it is the only exhibition which focusses exclusively on the security of outdoor areas and exterior facilities. Providers of both active and passive security systems come together with highly-skilled purchasers from the industry, authorities and municipalities as well as building services engineers and fitters of systems for building security.
Top-quality congress programme to accompany the exhibition
Trade visitors to Perimeter Protection can once more look forward to the accompanying security congress on the first two days of the exhibition in 2018. It will be organised for the fourth time by the congress partner of Perimeter Protection, the Association for Security Technology (VfS). Renowned speakers from companies, consultancy firms and planning offices will discuss the optimal exterior security of outdoor areas in concise presentations. Important subjects in 2018 will include the following, amongst others: secure access – a complex challenge between access regulation, burglary protection, fire protection and escape route regulation; drone detection from the test laboratory to actual use as well as integrated security – the coordinated interaction of man and technology for increased efficiency.
The Perimeter Protection Congress is aimed, on the one hand, at planners and manufacturers and, on the other hand, at users and builders. It also provides authorities which are responsible for security solutions in the outdoor areas of businesses, industry and public institutions with an exciting information platform. Given that the congress rooms are close to the exhibition hall, participants can bring themselves up-to-date about the latest technology in the sector between presentations or on the third day of the exhibition.
