As India’s population grows, so too does the number of associated social issues. For the Fire & Security Association of India (FSAI), it’s therefore only logical that the effects of population growth that include urbanisation and a rapidly growing middle class mean that India needs to develop more fire protection solutions. For FSAI President Pankaj Dharkar, the spotlight needs to be on the construction industry in India: “The rapid development of public facilities makes the issue of ‘‘fire protection” increasingly important in India. In order to achieve a high degree of safety, both technical innovations and greater public awareness are necessary.”
That’s sufficient grounds for NürnbergMesse India to launch its new exhibition FIRE & SECURITY INDIA EXPO (FSIE) for the first time, from 23 to 25 February 2017, in Greater Noida (Delhi). The FSIE is being organised in collaboration with the Fire & Security Association of India (FSAI) and is part of a trade fair alliance consisting of parallel events that combine to cover the entire spectrum of construction industry Topics.
“In order to achieve a high degree of safety, both technical innovations and greater public awareness are necessary.”
“In developing the concept for the FSIE, NürnbergMesse India is benefitting from the longstanding expertise of NürnbergMesse in the security segment,” explains Sonia Prashar, Managing Director, NürnbergMesse India. As the organiser of the Nuremberg-based fire protection exhibitions FeuerTRUTZ and Perimeter Protection, the trade fair for the protection of outdoor sites and facilities, the exhibition company has many years of experience in these areas.”
Construction fair alliance: four building industry events under one Roof
The FSIE is part of an overall concept to host parallel fairs focused on construction and building services technology. The FENSTERBAU FRONTALE INDIA exhibition showcases innovations for window and facade construction, while ACREX India focuses on energy efficiency and cooling and air-conditioning technology. NürnbergMesse India had already established a construction fair alliance in April 2016, along with its Indian partners FSAI and ISHRAE (Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers). Exhibition company Messe Frankfurt has also joined the alliance: In parallel with ACREX India, FENSTERBAU FRONTALE INDIA and FSIE, the Indian edition of its ISH (International Plumbing and Heating Exhibition) will also take place for the first time in 2017. Thanks to the four simultaneous events, construction industry experts like architects can gain comprehensive insights into all technical construction issues in just one visit.
