Saudi Arabia’s leading security, fire and safety workshop and exhibition will return in 2016. The Saudi Safety & Security Forum and Exhibition 2016, will be taking place from the 16-18 May at The Dhahran International Exhibitions Center, Dammam, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
2016 welcomes a rebranded SSS, including new logos and branded collateral. The 2016 event will focus more on industrial security, associated with safety and security protection of industrial facilities and assets.
The need for safety and security protection for industrial facilities continues to grow rapidly. Recent incidents and ongoing threats in the region highlights the urgency in ensuring security. Following the military operation in Yemen along with other allied Arab allies, Saudi Arabia has been forced to strengthen their security measures at key industry facilities. Physical and IT Security has become a major concern, with on-going cyber-attacks directed at oil and gas companies operating in the Middle East.
The security market in Saudi Arabia is predicted to show growth of 11.35% to 2018 and Saudi Arabia is now one of the world’s fastest growing markets for security and safety solutions. SSS 2016 will also draw attention to safety and health regulations within work environments with a focus on construction and heavy industry. Saudi Arabia is the largest construction market in the Middle East, according to the Saudi Gazette the construction sector is ‘one of fastest growing sectors’ for years with 7.1 percent.
With this growth comes the vital responsibility of safety measures within the work place. Current safety standards still require vast improvement, with a demand for safety equipment, regulations and professional training services.
The SSS 2016 international exhibition will play host to innovative and pioneering technologies and products aimed at overcoming security, safety and fire issues. SSS 2015 proved a major success, with over 2,200 industry experts attending the exhibition and 70 exhibiting organisations that included; DuPont, BRC, CANON, 3M, Dräger, UL, Gulf Defense Security Systems (GDT), Gulf Falcons Security & Protection (GFSP), NAFFCO and more. Alongside the exhibition will be a workshop-led conference format.
The rebranded SSS 2016 has already received an unpreceded level of interest due to Saudi Arabia’s growing opportunities within security and safety. With the growing need for development within these highly important sectors in Saudi Arabia, SSS provides a unique opportunity to source new businesses.
