Fostering Innovation for Future Security Challenges
INTERPOL World is a strategic platform for the public and private sectors to discuss and showcase solutions to evolving global security challenges. The biennial exhibition and congress event aims to connect law enforcement agencies, government bodies, academia, international security professionals and buyers with security solution providers and manufacturers.
The event fosters mutually beneficial collaboration, information sharing, innovation and solutions to ensure faster and more accurate responses to security threats. INTERPOL World is an event owned by INTERPOL, supported by Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Singapore Exhibition & Convention Bureau (SECB), the World Economic Forum (WEF) and managed by MP International PL.
In its second edition, a key challenge in the organization of INTERPOL World 2017 was garnering the support of exhibiting companies in the midst of tight budgets and more competitive events.
Through a consultative approach, visiting delegations and pre-event appointment scheduling were introduced to bring in quality visitors to the event. An online business matching system was implemented to match different groups of participants with mutual interests so as to pre-fix meetings at the event. Facial recognition and an e-gate system was showcased at the Congress this year to allow the audience to experience the technology.
