With smart city projects on the rise across Thailand, international security brands have converged at the 6th edition of Secutech Thailand in a bid to connect with regional buyers and project owners. Stricter fire and safety regulations enacted by the government have also led to heightened demands for fire and safety equipment, which will be a popular product category during the show.



The high demand has translated into an expansion in show scale at Secutech Thailand, which continues its year on year growth. Across 7,000 sqm of exhibition space at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (Bitec), over 250 brands are exhibiting, which represents a jump of 10 per cent from the previous edition.

“Visitors to this year’s Secutech Thailand will find products and solutions that are fit for the new age of security,” said Hubert Duh, managing director of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd. 

“As is the case across Asia, smart and safe city is a hot topic in Thailand and we are expecting a large number of government and commercial sector stakeholders to pass through the doors over the coming days to source and learn about new technologies for this sector. The technological barriers to entry for suppliers in the sector are extremely high, particularly with regards to artificial intelligence and IoT [internet of things] technology. For this reason, we are glad to be hosting a mix of international brands with strong technological pedigree that can fulfil the requirements of regional buyers.”

The international line-up of brands is expected to attract high numbers of visitors to the fair, which welcomed a record 8,326 trade visitors at the previous edition. 

Some of the most notable companies at the show include Dahua, Full Enterprises, Full Life, HIP Global and ZKTeco. 

Many of these companies offer IoT based solutions that can be customised to meet the needs of users. The fair therefore offers them an opportunity to meet with potential clients to discuss their requirements.
