Security Essen – From the Show Director


Dear readers. Welcome to Security Essen! From September 20 to 23, the German metropolis of Essen will once again become the capital of the security industry. Then we will provide a comprehensive insight into all facets of civil security. As project manager of the event, I look forward to welcoming you to the halls of Messe Essen.  

With its complete mapping of the security industry, Security Essen offers visitors an overview of the most important innovations in the entire civil security sector. The trade fair is divided into the areas “Digital Network Security”, “Access, Mechatronics, Mechanics and Systems”, “Services”, “Perimeter”, “Video” and “Fire, Intrusion and Systems”. National and international market leaders, niche players and innovative start-ups from more than 35 countries will present themselves in the exhibition halls five to eight.  

In addition to industry giants such as Honeywell, Salto Systems, Telenot Electronic, dormakaba EAD, PCS Systemtechnik, Rohde & Schwarz, Deutsche Telekom Security, Dahua Technology, Genetec, NSC Sicherheitstechnik, ABUS, Carrier Fire & Security, Wagner Deutschland, Hikvision Deutschland, Advancis Software & Services and Stölting Security & Service, Security Essen is also a top-class presentation platform for start-ups. Young companies from Germany and also international start-ups will have their own area -be sure to stop by here, perhaps you will also discover trend-setting innovations for your business there. 

For more than 40 years, Security Essen has been the trade fair for civil security and thus also a meeting place for the exchange of knowledge. In 2022, the trade fair will offer a top-class and cutting-edge supporting program: Thematically matching, there will be numerous other lectures and conferences. At the Digital Networking Security Conference, which is organised in cooperation with the trade journal “kes”, experts will report on current incidents, important interfaces between corporate and IT security, legal requirements and practical implementation examples on the first two days of the trade fair. In the Security Experts Forum, exhibitors will present the latest innovations and practical experiences in the field of security on a daily basis. The Fire Protection Forum, which will be organized in cooperation with the Haus der Technik, will provide comprehensive information on fire prevention and firefighting with exciting lectures and discussions on September 22 and 23. 

Security Essen counts important decision-makers and high-ranking politicians among its guests. On September 20, for example, a delegation of buyers from the United Nations (UN) will travel to the Ruhr metropolis to find out about new products. Also, participants of the European DIY Retail Association (EDRA) and the Global Home Improvement Network (GHIN) will come from all over the world to Essen. On September 22, they will be learning about innovations in modern and networked security technology that promise great sales potential, especially for DIY stores.  

As you can see, Security Essen offers you unique opportunities and possibilities for your business. Here, you will experience the latest innovations and receive valuable impulses which you can use and apply directly in your daily business. In addition, important new business contacts will arise here with which you can expand your personal network. I am very much looking forward to welcoming you at Security Essen!
