The event is divided into four distinct halls, with two halls dedicated to the Fire, Health, and Safety sectors and two focusing on Commercial, Perimeter, Homeland, and Cybersecurity.

This innovative space offers an immersive experience that extends the reach of the event beyond the confines of traditional exhibition halls. As attendees explore this open-air arena, they will encounter an array of cutting-edge solutions, enhancing the overall interactive experience.

Intersec Saudi Arabia 2023 is held in association with the Saudi Ministry of Interior and Civil Defense, the Kingdom’s leading authorities in the safety and security sectors, underscoring the exhibition’s value and significance to the region. Fire Founding Partner NAFFCO, Fire Strategic Partner Saudi Sicli, alongside Platinum Sponsors ADMC Dahua Technology and HIKVISION, are solidifying their positions as industry leaders and pioneers in the advancement of security, fire safety and protection.
Alex Nicholl, Show Director, emphasized the growing potential of the Saudi market, stating, “Saudi Arabia is undeniably a booming market for the security, fire, rescue, and safety sectors.

As the Kingdom propels forward with its ambitious Giga projects, the fire safety sector is primed for exceptional growth.
