The upcoming Milipol Qatar 2016, a leading bi-annual event dedicated to homeland security in Doha, Qatar will feature a dedicated area for civil defense exhibitors.
Marking its 11th edition and 20 years since the event was first held in Doha, the event will feature key conference sessions as part of this year’s agenda.
The exhibition, which has long been a key feature on the security market calendar, will be held from October 31 to November 2 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC), organized by the Ministry of Interior of the State of Qatar in partnership with the French-based Comexposium Security.
Muriel Kafantaris, Exhibition Director, Milipol events said: “The Middle East has witnessed a number of incidents over the past 12 months that have influenced policy, regulation and procedure, and with high profile events due to be held in the region in the coming years, and considerable construction projects planned, it is key that those involved are prepared with the right knowledge and resources, that’s why we decided to focus on civil defence area in 2016.”
A number of international companies have already confirmed their participation as part of the dedicated civil defence zone this year, which will be located in a prime position alongside the Ministry of Interior of the State of Qatar’s stand.
Exhibitors such as Bertin Technologies from France, China’s Telo Systems Limited, and Industrial Scientific US from the US will be represented together with regional entities such as Al Majdal Trading, Betafence Middle East and Leader Healthcare.
Additionally, Qatar’s Ministry of Interior announced that it will be allocating a portion of its own stand to civil defence, with leading officials available to discuss latest trends and developments to visitors.
As part of the conference agenda, a number of talks and discussions will also focus on relating topics.
