Security Essen: Leading Security Trade Fair Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Security is more relevant than ever. Whether it’s cybersecurity, intrusion protection or access control - the demand for individual and tailor-made security solutions in industry, companies and private households is constantly increasing. As the leading trade fair, Security Essen brings together the security industry and showcases innovations and developments with around 500 exhibitors from September 17 to 20. At the same time, it celebrates its 50th anniversary. What began in 1974 with 105 exhibitors and about 1,000 visitors has long since developed into an international success story.

“Today, Security Essen is the comprehensive platform and indispensable meeting place for the security industry. Thanks to our continuous further development, it always remains at the cutting edge. This year, visitors can also look forward to a number of new features, “ reveals Project Manager Julia Jacob.

Trade visitors from all over the world can expect an extensive range of products and services in the exhibition halls. Around 500 exhibitors from over 30 nations will present their solutions in these subject areas:

·         Access/Mechatronics/Mechanics/Systems

·         Perimeter Protection

·         Fire/Intrusion/Systems

·         Digital Networking Security

·         Services

Market leaders as well as hidden champions and niche players will be there. At the same time, Security Essen offers newly founded companies the opportunity to make contacts in the global market and to promote and market products made in Germany internationally. At the "Young Innovators" joint stand, start-ups will show, among other things, how AI robots can take over surveillance tasks, which furniture makes prisons look secure and stylish at the same time and how users can protect their passwords.
