Business programme

As part of the Securika Moscow 2021 business programme, 12 events were held, with about 80 speakers presenting and 1,427 industry specialists attending. The experts discussed the forecasts for the development of the industry and the changes that had occurred in the physical security market over the past two years: legislative innovations, implemented projects and innovations. Discussions of new fire safety codes, intelligent video surveillance and contactless technologies in access control attracted particular attention of visitors.

During a discussion at the Future of Security Forum, held on 13 April, top officials of international and Russian security industry companies concluded that despite the difficulties that the physical security market had to face in 2020, the industry will continue to grow steadily and steadily in the medium term. and long term. Urbanization and smart infrastructure will drive demand for new and better security systems, while market forces such as terrorism and crime threats remain relevant. In addition, the events of the past year determined a number of new industry trends: the development of contactless technologies, remote monitoring systems and biometric identification, as well as the maximum digitalization of security projects and the use of solutions based on artificial intelligence. The forum was moderated by CNews editor-in-chief Alexandra Kiryanova. Among the speakers of the forum were: James McHale, CEO of Memoori Research, an international analytical agency; Steve Batt, Senior Sales Director for Avigilon North Europe at Motorola Solutions; Christoph Hampe, Regional Director of Bosch Security Systems; Alexey Mayorov, Sales Director in Russia and the Customs Union of the EAEU Axis Communications, and others.

Another key event on the first day of the exhibition was the All-Russian Engineering Forum PROproject-2021. The co-organizer of the forum was the company RUBEZH, informational support was provided by the information and analytical magazine RUBEZH.   The main topic of the PROproject forum in 2021 was the application of the sets of rules that entered into force on 1 March 2021. The participants were greatly interested in the reports of the developers of regulatory documents, i.e. specialists from the Federal State Budgetary Institution VNIIPO EMERCOM of Russia. Specialists from GOChS of GlavGosExpertiza of Russia provided their explanations on topical issues during the state examination of project documentation in terms of fire alarm systems and fire extinguishing installations.

One of the key events on the second day of the business programme was the conference “Access Control: Contactless Reality”. The first part of the conference, organized jointly with Sigur, was dedicated to the topic “Contactless Access: Technological Trends”. The open conversation was moderated by Nikita Lebedev, Head of the Key partners department of Sigur. It was emphasized that the active development and implementation of contactless access systems was due to the 2020-umpact. The speakers noted the sharp increase in trust to biometric technologies, in particular, face recognition terminals, and the increase in demand for thermal imagers.
