The 8th Enforce Tac, the international trade fair for command, control and operational equipment used by security agencies, and the 3rd U.T.SEC – Summit for Drones, Unmanned Technologies & Security, closed on 7 March after two very successful days. These two highly specialised events were even more closely linked this year, in terms of both location and subject matter, attracting a total of about 5,000 experts from around the world to the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, about 35 percent more than the previous year.
The Antares E2 has been once again the eye-catcher of the show - being placed right in front of the main entrance.
The two parallel events posted an increase of about 25 percent in exhibitor numbers, with well over 300 between them. Their success was boosted by the fact the authorities are once again prepared to invest more in police equipment, along with a growing awareness of the use of, and the need for protection against, drone technology. With the strong demand for exhibition space, the new area made available in hall 12 and its foyer was almost completely filled right away.
Under the patronage of Germany’s Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Homeland, and the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy, the two events were dedicated to acute security matters such as state-of-the-art equipment for police special forces at a time of serious international crime and terrorist activities, and increasing security for critical infrastructure and major events.
