Milipol Qatar 2018 to focus on crucial role played by civil defence

Milipol Qatar 2018 will emphasise the vital role civil defence plays in protecting populations and ensuring public safety, the organisers have said.

The event will be held from October 29 to 31 at Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre under the patronage of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.

The 12th edition of the leading homeland security and civil defence exhibition in the Middle East has incorporated the Civil Defence Exhibition and Conference “in line with its constant evolution to provide unmatched experiences for exhibitors, visitors, buyers and industry professionals and provide the link between defence specialists and key decision makers”, a press statement notes.

The collaboration of the two shows has “cemented the exhibition’s position as the region’s leading event of its kind” and will bring together key global players for a series of focused conference sessions and agenda-setting panel discussions on the latest and emerging civil defence trends and best practices, the statement notes.

In the constantly evolving modern world, civil defence continues to play an increasingly important role in protecting citizens of a state in emergencies, disasters and everyday life and covers the full gamut of related issues, including crisis management, emergency management, emergency preparedness, contingency planning, civil contingency, civil aid and civil protection. 

Milipol Qatar 2018, organised by the Ministry of Interior (MoI) in Qatar and France-based Comexposium Security, will offer exhibitors, buyers and visitors “a tailored platform to network and close deals for a better, safer future for all”. The exhibition presents increasing opportunities for organisations across the full spectrum of sectors to demonstrate how they can contribute towards safety and security for the world’s population.

“Qatar’s Ministry of Interior has made great strides in ensuring that Qatar has world-class civil defence systems in place and continues to raise awareness of public safety through industry-leading conferences and exhibitions, lectures and outreach programmes and training,” said Brigadier Nasser bin Fahad al-Thani, president of Milipol Qatar Committee. “Milipol Qatar 2018 brings together the leading international figures in civil defence to demonstrate the latest smart solutions to assist with civil defence and discuss latest trends and best practice. 

“We are looking forward to an interesting three days. This event will further cement Qatar’s position as a premier destination for hosting world-class agenda-setting conferences.” 

To date, exhibitors specialising in civil defence that have confirmed their participation in Milipol Qatar 2018 include Qatar Factory for Firefighting Equipment & Safety Systems (Naffco), Consolidated Engineering Systems Co (Cesco) and International Gulf Trading Company - Chubb Fire from Qatar; China Pioneer from China, Haix Schuhe and Uniform Brands GmbH from Germany; and Turbosan from Turkey.
