Global Security Summit to be Held in Dubai in May 2021 as a Hybrid Event

This year's Global Security Summit, organised by Intersec in collaboration with Expo Consult, will be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) on 24 and 25 May.

It brings together an influential line up of global decision-makers, government officials and business leaders for bilateral cross-border discussions to address the biggest challenges in security.

Organisers say this is an essential and timely two day event for c-suite professionals across security, defence, cyber security and civil defense, as the threat landscape has changed dramatically over the past year and continues to evolve at pace bringing new challenges daily. Thus, the ability to adapt in these unprecedented times has never been more important than it is today.

Delegates attending the summit will gain valuable insight and information, engage in important Q&A exchanges, connect with peers and meet innovators of latest tech and solutions.

Visitors to the summit will be able to experience a special showcase of the very latest security and defence products and technology from over 25 leading suppliers exhibiting for the first time in the UAE.

Exhibitors include system integrators, control room & data centre providers, software, network video recorders and video analytics vendors, IoT smart home solutions companies and other security services players.


Blended in-person and virtual interaction

Combining the best of both worlds, the Global Security Summit will be held as a hybrid event targeted at in-person attendees and virtual attendees by integrating an AI powered technology platform. Organisers hope the hybrid format will allow attendees to have an amplified reach, enhanced business matchmaking and networking opportunities, unique content formats and innovative experiences.

The first day of the summit will focus on shaping the future of security and safety, building resilience and enabling innovation and future security as well as new capabilities in the security, safety and fire industries. There will also be discussions on future cities and fire safety.

The following day will see strategic discussion and exchange designed to strengthen cooperation, collaboration and trade between the UAE and Israel.
