For the past 40 years, one exhibition on the territory of Europe has been the right place for many experts in the field of security to come together, exchange expertise and observe innovations. Yes, we are talking about security essen – one of the biggest security markets worldwide. The exhibition has been running since 1974 and always served as the main platform for education and showcase of the latest technological innovations. Security and fire prevention are the main focal points at the event and to this end, the product lineup includes transport protection systems, alarm installations, fire alarms, smoke alarms, gas detectors, criminal investigation technology, IT security, CCTV & perimeter, control and surveillance equipment, special vehicles, criminal investigation technology and mechanical security systems. You’re also able to learn from the best experts working in the industry right now by joining in on the Security Experts Forum.


It’s no surprise to discover that security essen is held in Essen, Germany. The exhibition runs for a total of four days and is held during the month of September. Editions are spaced out every two years and held at Messe Essen, which also serves as the official organiser of the event. As of right now, there is no official information on what the working hours will be. Access to the proceedings is given to only industry professionals. Commuting to Messe Essen is a simple task since it sits in the city centre, so if you’re lucky enough with your hotel choice, you can just walk to it in a few minutes. There are bus connections from the airport and you can rely on the city rail to take you to the exhibition grounds, if you’re too far away.

What are people saying?

“With an impressive appearance at an exceptionally designed exhibition stand, the GRUNDIG brand returned to the Security Essen 2018, the leading international meeting place for the security sector, after a one-off break. Security Essen is the absolute market leader for security in an international comparison,” said Ludwig Bergschneider, Managing Director, Abetechs GmbH (Grundig Security);

“Our stand position in the new Hall 6 was a very good choice. The trade fair contributed to further developing the level of awareness of the Vanderbilt brand. We consider Security to be the leading trade fair for our industry. It is an excellent platform from which to present our solutions to a broad audience,” said Andreas Straubinger, Region Manager D/A/CH, Vanderbilt International GmbH;

“For us, Security Essen has been our most successful trade fair to date. The high levels of demand for our ALVARA Logistic App and ‘Digital Driver Legitimation’ were one reason, but not the only reason by any means. In particular, the BMWL joint stand brought together all of the stakeholders in cash services, offering an overall solution for efficient cash circulation,” said Bernd Hohlfeld, Management Board, ALVARA Cash Management Group AG
