awareness about fire safety
In India, awareness about fire safety and security has grown exponentially and intensified over the last decade as a direct result of the country’s economic evolution. With an increase in set up of large commercial factories, the stakes in terms of assets, investments and resources are too huge to be put at fire and security risk. Continuing to drive the demand for fire safety and security is also the government’s focus on infrastructure development, especially with initiatives like the Smart City Mission.
Pankaj Dharkar, president, Fire & Security Association of India, said, “The Indian fire and safety equipment market is expected to reach $4.94 billion by 2019. With the increased growth of the economy coupled with the government rules and regulations, the future of the Indian fire safety and security market is very bright. Fire & Security Association of India (FSAI) along with NuernbergMesse India joined hands together to organise the first FSIE in 2017. The upcoming edition is poised to attract the largest gathering of trade professionals witnessing product demonstrations and latest innovations by the leading brands participating at FSIE 2018 from world over.”
Anish Unni, director sales, fire and suppression Group, IDEX Corporation added, “IDEX India Fire & Safety decided to participate in FSIE 2018 looking at the first edition’s success. We expect a great show this year as well, and will have our senior leadership team from Europe and USA visiting the show at Bengaluru. We have plans to have live sessions where our products will be demonstrated and look forward to meeting key decision makers from the industry.”
By being the wide platform forum that it is, FSIE will bring to the fire safety & security industry, a uniquely concentrated market overview of integrated solutions for fire protection and security, especially those that intelligently combine innovation and technology. This will empower decision-makers with first-hand information, as well as open the stakeholders’ eyes to new possibilities. Sajid Desai, CEO, NuernbergMesse India shared, “FSIE’s second edition is a multi-dimensional platform that combines solutions for passive, active and organisational fire safety and security management. Here, official experts, architects and developers, MEP consultants, OEMs, security experts, building engineers, members of leading security and fire prevention bodies as well as fire safety & security representatives from retail, hospitality, real estate, facility management, and other stakeholders will disseminate information, gather knowledge, exchange ideas, exhibit, debate innovative perspectives, solutions and products for fire safety and security.”
