Growing Regional Demand For Safety And Security Driving Market

According to Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Epoc Messe Frankfurt, the continued success of Intersec is being driven by the rapid development of the safety and security industry regionally. “Across the Middle East authorities are improving security infrastructure, enhancing policing and crime fighting capability and […]
