Sicur - The International Safety and Security Exhibition

The halls at Feria De Madrid will provide the setting for the sixteenth edition of SICUR, the International Safety and Security Exhibition, which will bring together the largest number of business representatives from the integral safety and security sector between 26th and 29th February 2008. In this respect, it is not surprising that SICUR is recognised as being the event of its kind in Spain and one of the trade events on the calendar of international fairs for the industry. The excellent results achieved at the last edition, combined with some highly promising growth prospects for the next edition of SICUR, have led the fair´s organisers to expand the exhibition once again by incorporating Halls 2 and 9.

The SICUR´08 exhibition will be distributed throughout Halls 2, 4, 6, 8, 9 and 10, which, in addition to catering for the expansion needs of each of the sectors represented at the fair (Safety at Work, Fire Safety, Security and Computer Security), will permit an improved presentation of the different monographic sections.

Furthermore, in view of the large number of requests that have been received to take part in the area devoted to Security Against Criminal Acts, known as ´Security´ for short, a section of the fair that was unable to entirely cater for demand at the last edition, the organisers have increased the space available at the event by 100%, setting aside Halls 9 and 10 for this purpose.

Hall 9 will also be the new location for the exhibition devoted to Computer Security, which will take place in a differentiated area of the hall, one that is distinct from the Integral Security exhibition. The Fire Safety section, which enjoyed 20% growth at the last edition, will remain in Hall 8. As is customary, this area will be complemented by an exterior space located in the centre of the fairground devoted to the exhibition of fire engines.

In line with the fair´s policy at previous editions, SICUR will also stage a number of activities in order to coincide with the exhibition, thus providing an informative and promotional forum of considerable interest to all professionals within the field. In this respect, a new edition of the Gallery of New Products is being prepared, a section of the fair designed to promote research and innovation within the security field. On this occasion, the Gallery will present a number of different segments, thus matching the various sectors represented at the fair.

SICUR´08 will once again enjoy the support and collaboration of the associations and bodies linked to the security industry, all of which are represented on the fair´s Organising Committee. The Committee is chaired by the Spanish Association of Fire Protection Companies, TECNIFUEGO/AESPI, with three vice-chairmanships corresponding to three other representatives from the industry leaded by AES, the Spanish Association of Fire Protection Companies, APROSER, the Association of Private Security Services Companies, and ASEPAL, the Professional Association of Personal Protection Equipment Companies.
