Enforce Tac Newsroom
The countdown has begun: From 4 to 5 March 2020, Enforce Tac will open its doors for the ninth time at the Nuremberg exhibition grounds. With around 14,000 square metres of display area and some 350 exhibitors from more than 30 countries, this year’s highly specialised exhibition for command, control and operational resources for official security agencies is bigger than ever. In conjunction with the concurrent event U.T.SEC – Summit for Drones, Unmanned Technologies & Security – Enforce Tac offers an interactive networking concept for exhibitors, visitors and associations.
In view of the rising crime rate, terrorist threats and the associated increasing challenges for security forces, there is greater demand than ever for security solutions. At Enforce Tac, trade visitors with appropriate credentials from the police, judiciary, border protection, customs, military police or armed forces will find everything they need for their professional work, such as police equipment, security requirements or tactical solutions. The wide range of products includes equipment, information and communications technology and scopes for firearms.
Accompanying supporting programme
But Enforce Tac doesn’t just provide information about the latest innovations and trends; it is above all a platform for international dialogue and professional development. As well as the demonstration area with exciting live demonstrations, there are also high-calibre professional events like the European Police Trainer Conference (EPTK) hosted by Police Trainers in Germany (PiD) – a combination of lectures and professional training for members of security agencies and organisations (police, judiciary, customs etc.) and professional soldiers. The two-day symposium has been taking place since 2006 in the run-up to the IWA OutdoorClassics, and since 2012 has been held concurrently with Enforce Tac in Nuremberg. PiD – Police Trainers in Germany – hosts the EPTK conference in collaboration with NürnbergMesse.
U.T.SEC: drones and their future impact
Since 2017, the issue of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) has had its own platform: The “U.T.SEC” Summit, consisting of a conference and expo, covers the important topical issue of unmanned vehicles, particularly their use by official security agencies. The focus is on the technical, legal and above all practical options for improving security, with particular emphasis on drone use and countermeasures by official security agencies. In the Flight Zone, an outdoor area in the loading yard of hall 12, several companies like DJI and Globe UAV will partner with the Nuremberg fire brigade to present a live demonstration of how the work of emergency and security services can be supported by unmanned aerial vehicles. Visitors will be able to experience, for example, how drones can be safely guided outside the line of sight using mobile telephony from a great distance e.g. from a control room. Once again, the premium partner to this year’s U.T.SEC is ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik GmbH. Trade visitors can use their Enforce Tac ticket to access U.T.SEC free of charge.
Bavarian Minister for the Interior to be patron of Enforce Tac and U.T.SEC 2020
This year, the event will enjoy the patronage of the Bavarian Minister for the Interior, Joachim Herrmann. In his opening address he will stress the necessity for global networking, because guaranteeing homeland security is presenting new challenges to security agencies in Germany and Europe on a daily basis. “So make the most of the specialist expertise of the security specialists here at Enforce Tac and U.T.SEC to obtain comprehensive information at first hand about the latest technical developments,” the Minister says.
