We at Hekatron understand networking not only on the level of technology but also especially in the connection between companies and people. Therefore, security essen is the most important platform for us in the dialogue with operators and constructors. There was particularly strong demand for the intelligent connection of products and services into new workable business models relating to all aspects of fire prevention.
Peter Ohmberger, Managing Director, Hekatron Vertriebs GmbH
We were able to establish a large number of new contacts and to intensify existing business relationships even further. Attention focused on the smart security solutions which extend from personal security and security technology via money & valuables services right up to risk and health management. Moreover, there was particular interest in, amongst other subjects, the KÖTTER automatic machine service portal with which our family-owned company offers web-based malfunction management, e.g. for cash dispensers, as well as the smartphone app for travel security.
Friedrich P. Kötter, Member of the Administrative Board, KÖTTER Security
This year, too, the security service providers were able to register a successful week at the fair. We were particularly pleased about the 7th Training and Further Education Day which was very well-visited once again and featured the presentation of the 4th BDSW Training Prize which we organise together with Messe Essen. This year, many hundreds of young people were once again able to gain a particular insight into our sector and to obtain information about innovations. In the future, these will also include security solutions with ever greater integration.
