The second edition of the Philippines’ leading security, fire and safety event, IFSEC Philippines took place on 29 May – 1 June 2018 at the SMX Convention Center. Attended by 3,879 visitors from around the country, the event proved to be the center point of all industry players to converge under one roof.

 

IFSEC Philippines 2018 was participated in by a total of 78 exhibitors comprised of manufacturers and distributors in access control and biometrics, cyber security, drones, fire and safety, home automation, Internet of Things (IoT), physical security, perimeter protection and more. Almost half of the exhibitors were based in the Philippines, whilst the rest are from China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and other countries.

 

With such innovation and cutting-edge products available on the show floor, IFSEC Philippines attracted visitors from various backgrounds including communications, business services, construction/development, architecture, distributors and more. Based on the survey, 21% of the total number of visitors were interested in access control and biometrics, 14% in alarms/intruder detection, 10% in asset management, 9% in cyber security and more. The Philippines is facing its “Golden Era of Infrastructure” and is, therefore, investing more than PHP 8.4 trillion to construct roads, airports, ports and railways, in its effort to modernize its cities, pushing itself to become a higher-income nation. With such investments, the Philippines’ industry players will need the best solution available in the market.

 

Aside from the exhibitions, the event provided free seminars that took place at the IFSEC Philippines Theater. More than 22 topics were presented by industry experts covering the security industry overview, crisis management, cyber security, safe cities and more. With experts serving as speakers, the theater was packed with visitors. Some of the notable speakers were Chairman of Cyber Security Malaysia, General Tan Sri Mohd Azumi Mohamed; Chairman Emeritus of PSIS, Dr. Eduardo M. Fulgencio; Chief Editor of SecurityMatters Philippines, Mr. Ace Esmeralda; TAPA certified expert, Mr. Nilo S. Pomaloy; Director of CIISCM, Mr. Munies Pillai, and more.

 


 

IFSEC Philippines 2018 witnessed the launching of a Business Matching Platform. The platform was free for all exhibitors and registered visitors, where both parties could select and arrange their meetings to be held throughout the events. There were more than 300 meeting requests made, proving that the platform was a useful tool for the attendees, and giving a dynamic experience for visitors and exhibitors.

 

The organizer, UBM Exhibitions Philippines Inc. has forged partnerships with related government bodies and associations to make the second edition of IFSEC Philippines a huge success. Supporting the event was the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Asian Professional Security Association (APSA) Philippines Chapter, Mall Security Management Association of the Philippines (MSMAP), the Philippines Society for Industrial Security Inc. (PSIS), Safety Organisation of the Philippines Inc. (SOPI), Hotel and Restaurant Association of the Philippines (HRAP), Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA), Chartered International Institute of Security and Crisis Management (CIISCM), and Security Guard Association of the Philippines (SEGAP).

 

One of the highlights of the event was the MMDA Forum that was led by its MMDA chairman, Mr. Danilo Lim. It was attended by members of the Senate, city mayors from around the Philippines and high ranking officials. The MMDA Forum highlighted the latest traffic management system and featured Dr. Kim Wim-Jab, the Director of IT from Seoul Metropolitan Government Authority, as speaker, to share case studies in solving the traffic crisis.

 

“IFSEC Philippines is an interesting and educational event for the industry,” said Hon. Bayani F. Fernando, 1st District Representative of Marikina City, who attended the forum. “This will actually help solve a lot of traffic problems in Metro Manila. I hope that IFSEC Philippines will maintain their partnership with both the local government and private sector, and I wish the show’s success as its success is the success of the industry.”

 

With the success of the second edition, UBM Exhibition Philippines Inc. will organize the next one on 29–31 May 2019 at the SMX Convention Center. For more information on exhibiting and attending, please log in to www.ifsecphilippines.com or contact at +63 2 551 7718 / +63 2 551 7564.
