Milipol Qatar – the international exhibition of internal State security – first took place in 1996. Based on the highly successful Milipol exhibition in Paris, Milipol Qatar was created to respond to a need for a specialised exhibition that was highly targeted to the needs of the Middle East market.The show will be celebrating its 8th edition 25-27 October 2010 in Doha.
All the countries of the Middle East region continue to invest heavily in security and defence products and services. Not only do they share the needs of other regions in the fight against criminality and terrorism – their consistently impressive rates of economic growth have lead to massive building and infrastructure projects as well as industrial development, all of which have generated specific requirements to ensure security.
Organised in partnership with the Ministry of Interior of the State of Qatar, the exhibition provides a showcase for products and services for the following sectors:
police forces coastal and border security customs special forces civil defence prison services critical infrastructure security protection of sensitive sites and industrial security
The products and services covered include electronics (IT and communications), mobility (vehicles, boats, drones), arms and ammunition, optics/optronics, fabrics and clothing, forensic science equipment, building and perimeter security, civil defence equipment, bomb and mine disposal equipment, consultancy and training services.
There is now less than a month to go before Milipol Qatar 2010 opens on 25 October. The latest list of exhibiting companies can be found at www.milipol.com . With companies continuing to reserve their booths, there are currently almost 200 exhibitors from 33 countries promoting a wide selection of innovative products and technologies for the internal State security sector.
