The accompanying program of SECURITY EXPO is interesting and varied. Leading companies will present integrated video surveillance and access control system solutions. Sony Video Security will exclusively offer its new 360-degree hemispherical camera without blind spots, the latest discrete video camera and an exclusive promotional program just for the show.

HIKVISION Demonstration Truck will be available to SECURITY EXPO visitors from the entrance to Hall 5 of Inter Expo Center, where the exhibition will be located this year.

A number of demonstrations will intrigue the professional audience of all sectors – from security, construction, finance, transport, telecom, tourism, to agriculture. With the launch of the Italian electric truck brand ALKE, visitors will see how it works perfectly under any conditions. Sirena's innovative fire extinguishing module and sirens are suitable for any vehicle.

SECURITY EXPO will feature leading companies in the security, video surveillance, access control, fire extinguishing, and fire alarm sectors, representing nearly 100 global brands and products. SECURITY EXPO is traditionally organized by Inter Expo Center and the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Sofia Municipality and the Ministry of the Interior also support the exhibition and showcase the security policies they apply. Sofia Municipality will present a mobile command vehicle, which has radio control equipment for video surveillance. Apart from that it will also organize a presentation on emergency aid and crisis prevention.

In recent years, we have seen growing interest on part of companies in the software industry and fintech companies too. It is therefore no accident that the Bulgarian Association of Software Companies (BASSCOM) and the Bulgarian Fintech Association support events organized in the field of digital and information security.
