Instead of a physical edition of Intersec 2021, defence professionals can access a series of digital events throughout the entire year, but there are no official dates as of now. What we do know is that the next in-person edition of Intersec has been confirmed for January 16th – January 18th at Dubai World Trade Centre under strict preventive measures.


Intersec has been serving safety and security industry businesses and professionals for over 20 years. Intersec’s technical solutions are in the areas of health, safety, fire and rescue, surveillance, information security, commercial security, and homeland security. At Intersec, you may also attend product presentations, lectures, and workshops, and even design and implement goals of extraordinary vision with the input of your peers and colleagues.

There are also numerous pavilions for related products such as technical textiles and aerial surveillance equipment. As such, Intersec is the place to be if you, as a safety professional, would like to create new partnerships and projects and upgrade your business’s security.


Organised by the Messe Frankfurt Middle East GmbH in Dubai, Intersec is the premier trade fair for safety and security, both online and offline. Founded in 1999, Intersec takes place over three days in January annually. This popular exhibition is in full swing 10:00 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon, in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

Its venue, the Dubai World Trade Centre, can be reached via Dubai’s extensive metro system and by bus, which makes reaching the exhibition grounds a breeze if you would rather avoid renting a car or hiring a taxi. This business-only fair is open only to trade show visitors and no one below the age of 18 is permitted to enter the exhibition halls.

Audience & Statistics

Safety and security has always been an important topic for governments and businesses and these trying times - what with wildfires, airplane crashes, riots, and the coronavirus pandemic - are no exception. These are exactly the kinds of security threats that Intersec’s exhibitors seek to deal with, mitigate, and prevent.

Belief in Intersec’s benefit to the industry has drawn sponsors such as Chinese tech giant Huawei, Japanese tech company Toshiba, and US storage company Seagate.

It is no surprise that the 2020 Intersec Show was booming at 1084 exhibitors from over 56 countries, who in turn were visited by over 33,800 visitors from 136 countries. If you are a trade agent, manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, importer or exporter, a government authority, or just about anyone whose business requires security, this is the trade show for you!
