Secutech Thailand Opens with Larger Show at Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre
With smart city projects on the rise across Thailand, international security brands have converged at the 6th edition of Secutech Thailand in a bid to connect with regional buyers and project owners.
Stricter fire and safety regulations enacted by the government have also led to heightened demands for fire and safety equipment, which will be a popular product category during the show.
The high demand has translated into an expansion in show scale at Secutech Thailand, which continues its year on year growth.
Across 7,000 sqm of exhibition space at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre, over 250 brands are exhibiting, which represents a jump of 10% from the previous edition.
“Visitors to this year’s Secutech Thailand will find products and solutions that are fit for the new age of security,” said Regina Tsai, Deputy General manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd. “As is the case across Asia, smart and safe city is a hot topic in Thailand and we are expecting a large number of government and commercial sector stakeholders to pass through the doors over the coming days to source and learn about new technologies for this sector. The technological barriers to entry for suppliers in the sector are extremely high, particularly with regards to artificial intelligence and IoT technology. For this reason, we are glad to be hosting a mix of international brands with strong technological pedigree that can fulfil the requirements of regional buyers.”
The international line up of brands is expected to attract high numbers of visitors to the fair, which welcomed a record 8,326 trade visitors at the previous edition.
Although smart city is a central theme of this year’s show, there is also plenty on offer for stakeholders from other important fields of security. A wide range of products for smart home and building, information security and fire and safety are on display at three concurrent events:
- Fire & Safety Thailand
Allows the market to source and gain insights about video smoke alarms, water mist systems, early suppression fast response fire protection, and alert and rescue equipment for mudslides and floods.
- SMAhome Thailand
Returns to Secutech Thailand following a successful debut in 2017. The applications of products on display at the event range from residential complexes to commercial real estate such as smart offices and smart buildings. Members of the hospitality industry can also find a range of smart IoT solutions at the event.
- Info Security
A new addition to the show, this concurrent event addresses the security challenges that have risen from increased digitisation. This includes IoT security, mobile security, cloud security, risk remediation and network & endpoint security.
There are also four distinct pavilions at the fair showcasing products with applications for smart city, smart home, smart living and smart building.
The smart city theme is explored at the DEPA Smart City Pavilion as well as at two international pavilions from Singapore and Taiwan. The Singapore pavilion, which is a new addition at this year’s show, is hosting a selection of smart sensors, smart access control systems and video smoke alarms, while the Taiwan pavilion mixes solutions for smart city alongside products for smart traffic control, smart home, smart living and emergency exits for fire and safety.
The Z-Wave Pavilion, meanwhile, is housing smart home devices that utilise the Z-Wave wireless communication protocol.
