MANILA, Philippines, March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The global leading security, fire and safety event portfolio, IFSEC, is expanding its platform to Southeast Asia's most emerging market, the Philippines, from 3-5 May 2017 at the SMX Convention Centre, Pasay City, Metro Manila. With the theme "Providing global innovation and expertise to the emerging security, fire and safety markets of the Philippines", this three-day event will be the best platform for industry players to converge.
The Philippine market is growing significantly with its neighbouring countries. According to the World Bank, the country's GDP is expected to grow 6.4% this year, compared to 5.8% last year. The strong economy resulted from various government projects, including roads and infrastructure construction, which directly affects security, fire and safety by increasing demands. Meanwhile, the government is expected to roll out smart or safe city projects where they could monitor the whole city including traffic situation and others.
With positive development on the market demand, the organiser, United Business Media (UBM) is encouraging manufacturers to take part in the premier edition of IFSEC Philippines. More than 150 world-renowned brands have already confirmed their appearance on the show floor, giving full-access to Philippine industry professionals and trade buyers to the latest technology available in the market.
IFSEC Philippines offers a free seminar for the visitors via IFSEC Technology Showcase. The seminar will feature industry experts and bellwethers addressing important topics such as "The state of the nation (safety and security in the Philippines)", "Business resiliency amidst a changing political, integrity and risk involvement", "Compliance on the data privacy act" and more.
Supported by the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Philippines Society for Industrial Security (PSIS), Accommodation Establishment Security & Safety Coordinating (AESSCCI), Mall Security Management Association of the Philippines (MSMAP), Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA), Philippine Association of Detective and Protective Agency Operators, Inc.
