Exhibitor line-up includes major industry players from across the world
Milipol Qatar, the Middle East’s leading international event for homeland security and civil defence, returns to the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center in October, attracting an international exhibitor line-up and global sector heavyweights.
The latest exhibitor list for the biennial event shows confirmation from organisations across Scandinavia, Europe, the UK, Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East, Far East Asia, and Indian Sub-continent.
Milipol Events Director Marie Lagrenée said that many leading names from the homeland security and civil defence sectors are among the first ones to confirm, covering a wide breadth of equipment, systems, product and consultancy offerings.
Confirmed exhibitors include: fire and protection infrastructure support product and engineering systems suppliers; services and safety training consultants; manufacturers of access control, personal protection equipment manufacturers; authentication and cyber-security systems; risk assessment and crisis management advisors; fibres and fabric suppliers; producers of measurement and analysis, mobility and optronic equipment; communications and transmission systems as well as weapons and ammunition suppliers.
Major players in the confirmed line-up include:

- MC2 Technologies (France)
- Boole Server (Italy)
- Alpinter SA (Belgium)

- Haix Schuhe Produktions Und Vertriebs (Germany)
- Covidence A/S (Denmark)
The staging of the 13th Milipol Qatar is in line with Qatar’s master plan for the gradual lifting of COVID-19 prevention restrictions which allows the staging of business gatherings, including exhibitions and conferences from 1 September.
The event is under the patronage of The Amir of the State of Qatar, HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, and organised by the country’s Ministry of Interior in partnership with Paris-based international event organiser Comexposium, acting on behalf of the GIE Milipol headed by Civipol, the consulting and service company of the French Ministry of Interior.
Milipol Qatar is shaping up to be a window into a Middle East security market which is undergoing rapid transformation driven by technological advancements and by increased homeland health and safety requirements following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lagrenée said the public can expect a host of new cross-border health protection technologies to provide heightened national health and safety and address concerns which have arisen as a result of COVID-19. She said that these concerns need to be addressed as the Middle East is to realise its ambition to stage a major international event, such as the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™.
Milipol Qatar will be the first post-pandemic homeland security event to be staged and the first forum to ably address these concerns.
A powerful Milipol Qatar knowledge-sharing programme will feature dialogues, case studies and debates on the industry’s expanding challenges and opportunities. Milipol Qatar 2020 is expected to welcome over 200 exhibitors and close to 8,000 visitors.
The event’s online registration platform for exhibitors and industry visitors, who can enter free-of-charge, is now open at milipolqatar.com.
