Intersec Expo 2010
Fire & Rescue at Intersec
Securing Lives, Property and Infrastructure
The Gulf region is one of the most challenging markets for the industry of fire fighting, fire prevention and rescue worldwide. Major investments in infrastructure, construction and industry sectors are continuously raising the bar for fire & safety, on site and in commercial and residential buildings. More importantly, fire fighting and prevention in high rise towers is becoming a major issue and is more and more evident.
Facing new challenges
The boom in the construction industry and the steadily growing demand for solutions in active and passive fire fighting leads to another fact: the increasing need for rescue expertise, technologies and equipments. Natural disasters, rescue at height and general resilience are top issues on the agenda as well as implementing new rescue technologies to secure the major water developments such as "The Palms" and "The World" in Dubai and other developments in Bahrain, Qatar and Saudi alike.Visitor Demographic (Geographical Regions/Countries): Global

Event In Profile
Organisational security and resilience in today’s climate of extreme threats
National Security and Resilience combines national security needs with an in-depth understanding of the design and implementation of resilience solutions. London sits at the epicentre of knowledge and resilience and is recognised globally as a centre of excellence, notably in national security and resilience.
The NS&R Conference will take place on 8th-9th November in the heart of London, bringing together a wealth of expertise which will entertain, inform and expand understanding. The leading conference programme is matched by its exceptional cast of speakers from across government and industry for one of the best programmes discussing organisational security and resilience.
The importance of organisational resilience
Global turbulence is expected. Competition, instability and uncertainty are constants in a changing world. Organisations face an unprecedented and growing number of potential disruptions to the status quo and the best laid strategic plans. As history repeats itself, prominent organisations will fail unless modern risk management and governance models incorporate scalable resilience metrics.
To survive and prosper in this new environment of heightened uncertainty and change, organisations must move past traditional risk and governance models and focus instead on resilience. Resilience applies at all levels: national, regional, organisational and corporate.
The NS&R Conference will deliver the latest issues and threats facing government departments/agencies, corporations and businesses, and thought provoking discussions on strategies and innovations to ensure you and your organisation meet these changing challenges.
