SICUR 2020 revalidates its capacity

The recent edition of SICUR 2020 once again confirmed its role as the driving force behind the integrated security sector and its ability to attract visitors. From 25th to 28th February, 706 exhibitors and 2,016 participating companies were at Feria de Madrid, bringing together 42,838 trade visitors. In this way, the International Security Fair, organised by IFEMA, once again became one of the great business catalysts for an industry that needs to keep up to date to successfully face the significant challenges in technology, design and innovation in the world of security.

Over the four days of the Fair, SICUR was the venue for dynamic trade activity that made it a showcase for the latest innovations, equipment and solutions for the risk prevention and the protection of goods and people in all areas: Security, Defence, Cybersecurity, Workplace Security, and Fire & Emergency Protection.

The Fair was also the focus for the interest of security sector trade visitors from across Spain. Many visitors (54.6%) came from outside Madrid, which shows the Fair’s wide geographical scope. The regions from which most visitors came were Catalonia, Andalusia and Valencia.

SICUR also had a large number of international visitors from 81 countries8.3% of the total. Many of these visitors were from other European countries, especially Portugal, the United Kingdom and Germany, as well as Latin America and North Africa.

SICUR 2020 also responded to the sector’s need to keep up to date and adapt to new trends and requirements with a series of new features at this edition which were very well received by visitors.

SICUR RESILIENCIA (resilience), organised in collaboration with PESI (Spanish Technology Platform on Industrial Safety)offered a busy conference agenda around the Resilience for Companies and Organisations that requires integrated management of different perspectives of security and risk. The SICUR START-UPS platform aimed to provide support and increased visibility for five new projects and entrepreneurial companies aimed at the security market.

Also, in line with the new challenges facing the sector, cybersecurity played a major role at SICUR. The SICUR CYBER space was the place to analyse and discuss regulations, lines of action, gap management, risks to people’s privacy and anonymous networks, among many other topics.

The new SICUR MUNDO HACKER event attracted about 1,500 attendees and aroused lively interest among an audience of all ages, especially the youngest. There were demonstrations to show the critical role of cybersecurity as a fundamental part of comprehensive security in today’s economy and society.

This edition of the SICUR INNOVATION GALLERY highlighted the vital contribution of research and development to the security sector. At this edition of SICUR, it showcased 33 leading-edge projects that show the latest advances by companies in the security field. These are leading the way for the sector with their high level of innovation in design and technology in the areas of Occupational Safety, Security, and Fire and Emergency Prevention.
