SAFE India Expo by IFSEC India Expands its Footprint in Western India to Boost & Cater to Commercial Security Demands





Discover the Latest Advancements in Security surveillance at SAFE WEST India’s Debut Edition in Mumbai from May 18th-20th

Informa Markets in India, a leading B2B exhibition organiser, is all set to launch the debut edition of Security & Fire Expo, West India (SAFE WEST India) this month.  Slated to take place from May 18th – 20th, 2023, at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai, the event is anticipated to attract over 5000+ attendees, and 75 + brands.

The expo, a subset of IFSEC India, one of the celebrated expos in the Security and Fire Safety domain, will cover a broad spectrum of solutions in the sphere of commercial security with preventive technologies and innovation in the western India market. It will bring together renowned Indian and international brands from video surveillance, access control entrance and home automation, and perimeter protection industries to interact, network, view the latest innovations, source business solutions, and gather invaluable expert support.

The commercial security market in India has been growing steadily over the past few years, driven by increasing awareness about the need for security among businesses and the government. The market includes a range of security products and services, such as access control systems, video surveillance systems, fire alarm systems, intrusion detection systems, and security personnel. Given the nature of external security threats, State Governments are also increasingly adopting video surveillance to improve security and safety. For instance, the Maharashtra government is primarily focusing on enhancing surveillance on the streets to upgrade Mumbai’s safety. Small and big enterprises, public sector companies and gated communities, shopping malls etc., across various cities in the Western Region of India are adopting video surveillance technology. More than 10 lakh IP cameras are expected to be installed across the western region of India in the coming five years.

Speaking on the announcement of SAFE West India 2023, Mr Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India, said, There is a huge demand for safe city projects in India to ensure public safety. The government has taken various initiatives to increase security services revenue which will benefit the citizens as well as the security and surveillance services industry. This is particularly true for the western region of India, which has several smart cities and offers strategic vantage points from a security perspective. A modern civil city should be able to showcase seamlessly safe, smart, energy-efficient, and technologically advanced features. Moreover, rapid technological advancements in artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, internet of things (IoT), and cybersecurity are driving the security market in India.”

“Our expansion into the western market through SAFE West India is a strategic move aimed at bringing the show closer to end-users in multiple key cities across Maharashtra, Gujarat, Goa, parts of North & Coastal Karnataka, and Madhya Pradesh. This platform will serve as an exclusive opportunity for prominent commercial, industrial, and homeland security players to tap into India’s rapidly growing Western market. These leading players can establish a strong foothold in the region through joint ventures, partnerships, sourcing, dealerships, and networks. We are thrilled to bring together the sharpest minds in the industry for this must-attend exhibition and look forward to a successful debut.”
