INTERPOL World 2017 – Shaping security innovations
The world’s largest international police organization, INTERPOL, has announced that the second edition of INTERPOL World will take place from 5 to 7 July 2017.
Providing a strategic platform to shape future security, this trade exhibition and congress encourages dialogue amongst key stakeholders and the sharing of best practices, allowing solution providers to present innovative and more accurate responses to security threats.
With many nations gearing up to launch smart cities projects, the security landscape is evolving with technological advancements in the digital age, which criminals also seek to exploit. Ease of international travel also makes border management even more important.
The public safety and security market value is estimated to grow from some USD 220 billion in 2015 to approximately USD 370 billion by 2020.
Through its Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore, INTERPOL provides proactive research into new areas and latest training techniques, equipping law enforcement agencies with the global policing capabilities and knowledge to confront sophisticated challenges.
In this respect, INTERPOL World, provides a platform for law enforcement, government bodies, academia, international security professionals as well as solution providers and manufacturers to share insights and learn from one another.
Through a high-level, strategic thought-leadership approach, the INTERPOL World 2017 Congress will address the future landscape of security and protection against emerging crimes.
The Congress will engage some 500 international delegates in stimulating dialogues on safe cities solutions, biometrics, cybersecurity, Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics, unmanned systems, drones, robotics and artificial intelligence, and genetics and synthetic biology.
Alongside the Congress, a three-day trade exhibition will provide a sourcing ground for government agencies and private sectors to stay abreast of the latest solutions for public security.
“The strong showing at INTERPOL World 2015 reaffirmed the interest of all stakeholders to keep up with the evolving security landscape and its complex challenges. The 2017 event will provide a timely response to their needs and to the security challenges of tomorrow,” said Mr Noboru Nakatani, Executive Director of the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation.
The INTERPOL World exhibition in 2017 is expected to gather 300 international manufacturers and solutions providers, in addition to 10,000 visitors from law enforcement agencies, government departments and the commercial sector.
