A more than positive balance delivered the organizers of the 29th edition of the International Security Fair ESS+, an event that this year registered an expansion of its surface equivalent to 15%, managing to host 14,040 attendees, as well as 300 exhibitors from 36 countries.
Similarly, the organizers announced the surpassing of the historical record of attendance at the Corferias venue, which last year had 12,161 visitors.
"This edition culminates as a historic milestone in which the professionals of the guild have reaffirmed that this space is the meeting point par excellence of the sector. The fair demonstrates its relevance as the stage chosen by companies to present their launches and attract a highly qualified audience. This dynamic of business generation translates into a constant pace of renewal, with several companies interested in expanding their presence for the next edition," said Patricia Acosta, director of the ESS+ 2023.
The Fair, organized by PAYFC and Corferias, brought together in its commercial sample the most outstanding brands of the security industry, consolidating itself as a relevant epicenter of the sector in the region.
"The technologies and advances we have witnessed are moving us towards more modern and reliable environments. Without a doubt, we will get better protected cities. We thank all those who took part, because they bring us even closer to the realization of our philosophy and value proposition, focused on preventing insecurity instead of reacting to it," added Patricia Acosta.
