Doha: Brigadier Nasser bin Fahad Al Thani, (pictured)President, 2014 Milipol Qatar Committee, has announced that preparations are underway for the 10th edition of the region’s most influential trade exhibition dedicated to internal state security – Milipol Qatar 2014 — on October 20-22 at Doha Exhibition Centre.
Organised by the Ministry of Interior in partnership with Comexposium Security from Paris, Milipol Qatar has, since its inception in 1996, established itself as the main platform for Qatar and the region for internal security requirements due to the professionalism and quality of exhibitors and visitors. 
It also provides Qatar-based internal security professionals and suppliers access to latest industry techniques, technology and procedures, security markets in the region and international product and service providers to meet a fast-developing environment that offers medium to long-term economic and strategic projects. “The issue of internal state security is a rapidly evolving concern,” said Brigadier Sheikh Nasser. “Existing and potential threats and risks are getting more sophisticated in today’s fast-paced and technologically advanced societies, including Qatar. 
“Such sophistication must be addressed by the most advanced internal security hardware and software, as well as knowledge and expertise. All preparations, arrangements and procedures for Milipol Qatar 2014 have been in accordance with plans developed by the committee since 2012-end.
“The panel has taken part in many international security exhibitions to market the show and invite the largest number of international companies to Milipol Qatar 2014.
“Through Milipol Qatar, all professionals in Qatar and the region involved in internal state security will be kept up-to-date, not just on latest threats and risks, but also the most effective way of preventing them. We are honoured to be hosting the event again and believe that the record-setting, biggest and most popular edition of the event in 2012 will be surpassed this year.” 
A survey by organisers on the 2012 event showed that 97 percent of exhibitors were satisfied with their participation, 78 percent intend to exhibit at Milipol Qatar 2014 and 96 percent of visitors were satisfied. The Peninsula
