“The number of Saudi trade visitors to Intersec in Dubai has increased by 53 per cent from 2012 to 2016. We’re delighted to bring Intersec Saudi Arabia directly to the doorsteps of key stakeholders, where international players can increase their market share, and Saudi visitors can keep up-to-date with the latest global technologies and services.

Muwaffak Al-Harith, chairman of ACE Group, added, “We are excited for Al-Harithy Exhibitions Company to jointly organise with Messe Frankfurt Middle East the largest security exhibition – Intersec – in Saudi Arabia in 2017.
