06 Oct Intersec appoints new Head of Exhibition
Intersec has appointed a new Head of Exhibition to lead the show’s ground-breaking event programme. Industry veteran Alex Nicholl has joined the world-leading emergency services, security and safety event for its 23rd edition.
Nicholl brings with him a wealth of knowledge from 20 years+ working within the events industry in the UAE, the UK and India. He has held major roles at homeland security, aerospace and defense exhibitions, plus spent nearly 20 years as a senior office within the British Army.
The senior hire is a demonstration of Intersec’s investment in the significant growth of the flagship event. It will mark its return in January 2022 by bringing together global leaders to discuss the challenges and opportunities they face.
Alex Nicholl, Intersec Exhibition Head, said: “I am excited to be joining the most significant event in our industry. The exhibition brings the entire emergency services, security and safety ecosystem together at one time and, after limited opportunity to meet in recent times, Intersec’s 23rd edition is set to be the best yet – we have listened to what our stakeholders need and have a ground-breaking event in development that will inspire discussion, collaboration, connections and business that will support them in building a safer and more secure world.”
Christine Davidson, Group Exhibition Director at Messe Frankfurt Middle East, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Alex Nicholl to the Intersec team. With the immense focus on the industry in the last 18 months, Messe Frankfurt recognises that Intersec’s importance to the safety and security industry has never been greater, we are bringing the best in the industry onboard to develop the most relevant and comprehensive event for the industry.
“His appointment is testament to our commitment to deliver a world-class event that brings strategic value to the industry and meets the needs of every stakeholder, from government entities to sponsors, exhibitors and attendees.”
Intersec will bring together thousands of its most powerful stakeholders at the Dubai World Trade Center from 16-18 January 2022, for bilateral government and business discussions on mitigating and addressing vulnerabilities of the future. They will be joined by leading regional and international brands exhibiting the most innovative systems and solutions in a dynamic environment that will enable face-to-face and virtual exchange through interactive roundtables, workshops and ‘closed-door’ confidential conversations.
