INEGMA and in collaboration with the Strategic and Security Services Company (3SCo) will be organizing the third edition of the Security Middle East Show (SMES) in Biel, Beirut, March 26-28, 2015. The trade show will be under the patronage of the Lebanese Ministry of Defense and Ministry of Interior, and with the support of the Lebanese Armed Forces and the Internal Security Forces. SMES will take place at a time regional militaries and security forces are undertaking efforts to bolster their capabilities to confront the growing threat of terrorism that has spread across vast parts of the Middle East. Some $5.6bn was allocated to arm and equip the Lebanese Armed Forces and the security forces, and billions more were pledged to arm Iraqi, Kurdish and Jordanian forces to combat terrorism groups like Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra Front and ISIS. SMES will gather defense industry and security officials and experts to address the threat of terrorism and display the latest technologies and systems that would help in the war on terror. SMES will become the focal point of interest for all international and regional defense and security industries. SMES organizers will work with the patrons to secure the participation of senior security and defense delegations from regional countries involved in the fight against terrorism. A dozen foreign delegations participated in the previous edition of SMES. Your participation in SMES will put you in direct contact with many regional and international official delegations, along with high-ranking officials from the Lebanese military and security community. SMES 2015 will be the optimum platform for showcasing civil, security and military solutions for contemporary emerging threats and to mitigate risks related to homeland security such as terrorism, coastal protection, border control, infrastructure security, civil defense and cyber security.
