UBM India to Launch Security Event
UBM India will launch a new event next month - the inaugural IFSEC South India will take place June 1-3 at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre. The event will showcase new developments, products and technologies in the fire and security equipment industry, and it is supported by the Indian chapter of the Asian professional Security Association (APSA).
A variety of product categories will be on show, including access control, intruder alarms and CCTVs. The company reports that more than 120 exhibitors will participate in the trade show, including a significant number from overseas.
Nigel Luke Brown, project director at UBM India, said that the Indian security market is worth approximately $1.1 billion, and it is growing at a rate of more than 30 percent annually.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
