LONDON and KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, September 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
IFSEC Southeast Asia, organised by UBM, cemented itself as the key event for the region at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Malaysia. Taking place from 3rd - 5th September, thousands of senior buyers flooded through the doors with an impressive quantity and quality of audience from the ASEAN region and beyond.
IFSEC Southeast Asia 2014 demonstrated that this is the go-to place for sourcing the latest products and innovations in Southeast Asia. More than 300 exhibitors from 36 countries, including national pavilions from United Kingdom, Taiwan, China and Singapore showcased their latest solutions and offered visitors the chance to get hands-on with interactive features. Action on the show floor included the highly anticipated official opening ceremony conducted by YDH Datuk Haris Wong Abdullah, Deputy Director of Narcotics Criminal of Royal Malaysia Police, and the APSA Recognition Dinner on the evening of Day 2, featuring Dato' Seri Dr Zahid Hamidi as the Guest of Honour.
Commenting on the benefits of IFSEC Southeast Asia, visitor Arthur Dabkowski, Counsellor of Trade and Investment Promotion Section, Embassy of the Republic of Poland, said: "IFSEC Southeast Asia helps us to see what's relevant in the market. The event has filled a gap in the Southeast Asian region for an exhibition of such scale. We hope to participate next year as exhibitors looking at how successful it has been this year!"
More than 65 per cent of the floor plan has already been rebooked for 2015, with returning exhibitors including: AXIS Communications, Panasonic, NSI Electronics, Sensorlink, Paradox, Senstar, Senzo, OT Systems, plus many more. This provides the perfect platform to take the show to new heights next year and welcome an even wider community of security professionals to the event.
