The UK-based access security manufacturer TDSi reports that it increased its visitor numbers by 30pc at this year’s Intersec 2016 event in Dubai. The theme of integration was centre stage, with the company engaging with systems integrators and other visitors.
John Davies, Managing Director at TDSi, pictured, said: “This impressive increase in visitors over last year reflects a general trend we have experienced throughout our diary of events over the last few years. We are enjoying a distinct upturn not only in numbers, but also in the diversity of nationalities looking to engage with us at events. This demonstrates just how the global security sector is growing and integrating internationally.”
Visitors registered on the stand came from a range of locations, including UAE, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey, as well as further afield from Angola, India and Sri Lanka. John added: “We were delighted by the breadth of visitors we spoke to, not only from the Middle East but also travelling considerably longer distances from Africa and Asia as well. Our latest integration capabilities with SimonsVoss wireless locking solutions and ASSA ABLOY’s KS100 server cabinet electronic lock were of particular interest to visitors, offering even broader integration possibilities than ever before.”
The firm also believes that the high number of systems integrators at the Intersec show demonstrates strong demand for expertise in integrating physical security and logical security, along with other business IT systems. John said: “The interest from systems integrators as well as more traditional installers is a clear indication that physical security is now very much part of the wider IT arena as well. Intersec is key event for TDSi when it comes to understanding these export markets and the trends within them. The feedback we get from visitors and partners shapes our ongoing product and services development and helps us to understand exactly what our customers need. We were particularly pleased this year to see visitors from such a wide geographical radius, showing just how truly international the security market has become, with very positive signs of continued growth.”
