IFSEC is expanding into the Egyptian market. This event will be held alongside fire safety show FIREX Egypt, which ran for the first time in November 2019, and the power and energy event Electricx.
IFSEC says that opportunities for the security sector are increasing within this market, which is complemented by the rapid growth of Egypt’s oil and gas industry. Egypt is the third-largest projects market in the MENA region – after Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – and its central location at a crossroads between Europe, Asia and Africa make it an entry point for regional and international firms.
IFSEC Strategy Director Gerry Dunphy said: “IFSEC Egypt is an exciting opportunity to access a growing and dynamic new market and provides a fantastic opening for regional and international firms into the North Africa region. With an integrated security market currently under-served by a comprehensive security event and unique security challenges concerning regional industries such as oil and gas, the need for an event like IFSEC Egypt is clear. I believe it will be enormously beneficial to both local security providers and the IFSEC brand itself.
“In addition, the launch of FIREX Egypt this year means we’ll be prepared to leverage the strengths of this new environment when it comes to the opening of IFSEC Egypt in 2020.”
