“In the age of smart technology and budget constraints, digital transformations, refurbishing of the security strategy and discussion about the measures to improve occupational health and safety have been the need of the hour in the professional establishments. Moreover, they continue to face bottlenecks associated with enabling a remote workforce, a significant percentage of whom have dealt with stress, overcoming supply chain disruption, or embracing new digital platforms,” said Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India, while speaking at the successful conclusion of IFSCE India and OSH India Virtual Expos.
“The Security market is expected to grow at a 4.3 per cent CAGR globally by 2025 which will be fueled by creation of additional infrastructure like industrial complexes, public infrastructure, residential complexes, etc. and the humungous opportunity presented by government initiatives like ‘Smart Cities’ and ‘Make in India’. Also, it is important to spread awareness in focused areas such as occupational safety and health for working women, people working at heights or working with hazardous substances, workplace ergonomics, and very significantly, employee wellness when morale is at a low in the ongoing pandemic,” Yogesh Mudras added.
“IFSEC India and OSH India be it offline or virtual have been established for professionals in the safety and security space across the globe. Our second tow-day virtual editions attracted over xx relevant buyers and visitors for the expo and attendees for the conference altogether from over xx countries. The shows have also been significant contributors to our Super September – Virtual B2B Celebrations initiative that has catered to different industries and target buyer communities to amplify business opportunities,” he further added.
