SECPROTEC is the only established security exhibition in East and Central Africa that was first held at KICC in 2013. Leading suppliers meet buyers from different countries at this key industry event providing a vibrant showcase of contemporary equipment and latest technology. More than just a trade fair, SECPROTEC also includes matchmakings, seminars, round table discussions and lectures.
The new cooperation between SECPROTEC East Africa and Intersec, the famous brand of world`s leading organizer Messe Frankfurt, has a huge impact on the East African security and protection technology market. Intersec is the world leading trade show for the security, safety and protection technology industry and partner of Messe Frankfurt! Having acquired a South African subsidiary with several events in the middle of this year, Messe Frankfurt is continuing to expand its portfolio in Africa. Trade & Fairs Consulting GmbH, planetfair GmbH + Co. KG, organizers of the only security trade fair in East Africa, and Messe Frankfurt are to come together to form a strategic partnership. As of 2015, the trade fair will be operating under the name “SECPROTEC East Africa powered by Intersec” for the first time.
“By working together with Messe Frankfurt, we will be able to strengthen the international position of the trade fair in the long term and to assume a unique position in the East African security sector. We are very pleased to have an expert partner like Messe Frankfurt at our side with extensive experience organizing security trade fairs.” Says the CEO of Trade & Fairs, Skander Negasi.
This year, the Excellence Security Awards (ESA) program is also partnering with SECPROTEC. The program will be held concurrently with the fair on July 11th in the same venue, KICC. Some of the top categories to be awarded include Security Partnering Initiative of the Year, Systems Integrator of the Year & Security Guarding Company of the Year among others. ESA was created to honor and generate industry-wide and peer recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and individuals from all over the world.
