India - The organiser of the Global Security Asia exhibition series is taking its show on the road to three cities later this year to drum up interest for Global Security India 2010.
Global Security Road Show India 2009 will kick off in November, tapping into the current demand for homeland security that followed the Mumbai attacks, which according to organiser GSI Exhibitions, created an opportunity for the international homeland security industry “to assist the Indian federal and state governments to further boost and strengthen their security infrastructures to counter terrorism throughout the nation.”
GSI Exhibitions is a sister company of UK-Singapore joint venture GSA Exhibitions; the company that the biennial GSA series in Singapore in March 2005.
The organiser says it is planning the road show, which takes place in Mumbai (23 November) Bangalore (25 November) and New Delhi (27 November) as a “prelude to the main event” in New Delhi from 28 to 20 April, next year.
Global Security India 2010 will be modelled on the GSA Series in Singapore, focusing exclusively on India where the national and state budgets for homeland security have increased and will continue to do so “exponentially” over the next five years, according to organisers. India’s current homeland security budget is US$28.3 billion, to be spent by the state and federal governments this year.
