Initially planned for October 2020, Milipol Qatar has been rescheduled for March 2021
Organisers of Milipol Qatar, the leading international event for homeland security and civil defence, have announced the postponement of the event for six months or until March 2021 because of force majeure.
Over recent weeks and months, they have been in constant discussions with key industry authorities and partners to stay abreast of the challenges in the face of disruption due to COVID-19. In light of the latest developments of the health situation worldwide and especially in Qatar as announced by Qatar authorities, they are forced to postpone Milipol Qatar 2020.
According to Préfet Yann Jounot CEO of Civipol – the technical implementer of the French Ministry of the Interior – and President of Milipol events, the force majeure has been brought about by continuing global efforts to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is impacting international travel with varying restrictions being imposed on a regular basis by individual governments.
Organisers are confident that the postponement will ensure a well-attended event when the show opens at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre in March 2021. Online registration for exhibitors and visitors for the event remains fully open. Milipol Qatar team will put the coming months to good use to prepare an even more inspiring and efficient Milipol Qatar 2021 for the 200+ exhibitors and 8,000+ visitors expected.
Milipol Qatar, an industry-only event, is under the patronage of HH the Amir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani. It is organised by Qatar’s Ministry of Interior in partnership with the Paris-based international event organiser Comexposium, on behalf of the GIE Milipol headed by Civipol, the technical implmenter of the French Ministry of the Interior.
Milipol Qatar 2021 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 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
