To safeguard India from the asymmetric threat of international terrorism, the Indian Government is readdressing its internal security strategy, markedly increasing the budget allocation and fast tracking procurements of homeland security and defence systems. It is within this climate that the next edition of the INDESEC Expo series, will take place in New Delhi between 6-8 September, 2010. INDESEC is the only exhibition and conference held in India integrating the homeland security and defence sectors with a key focus on homeland & border security, network centric operations and maritime security. The event will be held at Pragati Maidan, Central Delhi, to make the event easily accessible for Government visitors. Supported by the Ministry of Home Affairs, INDESEC will showcase new country pavilions this year from Sweden, France, Taiwan and China. Located in Delhi – the headquarters of Homeland Security decision makers and influencers, only INDESEC has a proven track record of delivering the central government officials and decision makers from the Ministry of Home Affairs, Paramilitary Forces, Coast Guard, Army, Navy, Air Force, National Disaster Management Authority and more than half of the state police forces. INDESEC Expo is organised by Informa, the world’s leading information specialist and the owners of global in association with ASSOCHAM- the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India- an apex industry body in India which represents the interests of industry and trade. On how INDESEC is clearly differentiated from any other defence or security events held in India, Brig. Raj Manchanda, Group Director, Defence and Security Division says, “As the distinction between security and defence becomes less relevant, the co-ordination between Ministries, Police, Coastguard and the three Services becomes hugely important. Their shared knowledge and experience will increase the chance of procuring the right equipment on time and at the right price”. In addition to senior Ministry representation, INDESEC will attract key decision makers and end users from the paramilitary forces, state police forces, anti-terrorist and Special Forces, emergency and disaster relief forces to create the optimum business environment for both exhibitors and visitors.
