The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) members are gearing up for the 18th edition of Intersec from 17-19 January 2016 in Dubai
As the trade association representing the UK’s private security industry, BSIA forges productive links between UK security companies and overseas buyers including ones in the Middle East.
Underlining the importance of the Middle East region to member companies, the BSIA’s export council conducted its annual ‘State of the Nation’ survey, which considers global export trends.
This year’s survey revealed that there continues to be a high demand for British security products and services with 60 per cent of respondents citing an increase in overseas business during 2015, and a further 30 per cent stating that the level of business had remained the same.
Overseas trade are expected to grow in 2016 with a clear focus on the Middle East as an important market for the UK’s security sector. Almost half of all respondents identified the Middle East as the single most important target market and 80 per cent of respondents are looking to increase their level of business in the region next year.
Daren Wood, membership and export services manager at BSIA, said, “The UK enjoys a positive international reputation when it comes to the provision of security products and services, in part due to the innovation which has become synonymous with the UK’s security industry.
“Over half of the respondents to this year’s survey attended Intersec in 2015, which reflects the clear importance that this region has for UK security exporters and the pivotal role that Intersec plays in helping UK businesses to forge productive trade links with buyers in the Middle East.”
BSIA members exhibiting at Intersec this year include Remsdaq, RGL Electronics, GJD Manufacturing Ltd, Storm-AXS, Texecom Ltd, among others.
As a UKTI approved trade organisation (ATO), the BSIA is responsible for facilitating the UK Pavilion at Intersec 2016 bringing together a number of UK companies to promote the ‘Great Britain’ brand. The UK Pavilion will form a focal point for overseas buyers that want to buy the quality, innovative security products that the UK is globally renowned for.
