Taipei will become the focus of the international security industry again as the 19th edition of Secutech is set to commence next week at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center in Taiwan.

At the fair's upcoming edition, participants can expect a more diversified collection of product showcases since the show has gathered not only leading manufacturers of traditional safety devices, components and parts, but also a large group of suppliers of total security solutions, next-generation technologies and digital platform designs.

Ms Regina Tsai, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Media Business Ltd explained: "Amidst the vigorous price competition in the Asian market, we have noticed shifting demands from single gadgets to smarter products and solution-oriented items, which offer high cost effectiveness, over the last year. We foresee that the soaring needs will unfold a wealth of business opportunities for OEMs, ODMs, systems integrators and distributors along the supply chain. Therefore, as the show's organiser, we take one more step to accommodate the emerging market needs and enhance Secutech with increased strength in the total solutions for smart home, energy management, info security and fire & safety sectors."

In its effort to stay on top of the industry, the show strives to ensure the market continues to attract the latest advances in the products and technology demanded by consumers, so as to be a successful venture for both exhibitors and buyers.
