The exhibition is one of the traditional projects organized by INCHEBA PRAHA and it is currently the leading event held in the Czech Republic in the area of security equipment, systems and services. The structure and focus of PRAGOALARM/PRAGOSEC 2011 allows exhibitors to present the latest innovations, products and services at the beginning of the season, and, at the same time, provide security professionals with comprehensive information on contemporary trends in the area of security equipment, systems and services, fire protection and safety equipment.

Despite the difficult situation, this year’s 18th exhibition managed to maintain interest from industry professionals, who again visited the event in large numbers. Thus, a majority of the exhibitors were satisfied with the outcomes of the event. As the exhibition was held in parallel with the Pragointerier New Design and Home exhibitions, exhibitor stands were viewed by approximately 15,000 visitors from Thursday to Saturday, of whom 4,513 came to see specifically Pragoalarm/Pragosec.

There was an attractive accompanying programme for the visitors to Pragoalarm/Pragosec, prepared in cooperation with the event’s expert partners, which met with great interest. All partners reported full capacity and a success of all accompanying events.

On the first day of the exhibition, the AMBO Association, in cooperation with the Union of Building Entrepreneurs, prepared a specialized conference titled Security Systems and Fire Protection in Building Construction, the main topics being the integration of security and control systems as well as modern fire protection of buildings and constructions; Tomáš Baťa University opened a discussion on a topical theme during a workshop titled Protection of Czech Republic’s Critical Infrastructure under New Legislation. On the second day of the exhibition, the Czech Ministry of the Interior, along with the Association of Technical Security Services Grémium ALARM (AGA), organized an international conference on the theme of Municipal Camera Surveillance Systems and Personal Data Protection; The Czech Club of Security Services again organized the Meeting of Central Alarm Station Manufacturers and Operators.

This year, the exhibition included a section titled Panel Houses and Flats, focused on the revitalization of panel houses and flats, lift reconstruction and installation of insulation systems. As part of this section, the 4th edition of the competition for university students of architecture and building construction was held under the titled The Panel House in the 21st Century. This competition was organized by the Architecture and Building Foundation (ABF) and the State Housing Development Fund in cooperation with INCHEBA PRAHA and other partners.

Grémium ALARM (AGA), in cooperation with the Czech Ministry of the Interior and other partners, presented to the public “The Year of Vehicle Security”, a property crime prevention project focused on vehicle security. At their joint stand, partners of the project provided interested participants with advice on how to protect their cars from theft.

There was also a competition for volunteer fire fighters, providing an opportunity to win an automated external defibrillator, Lifepak 1000, donated by by Physio - Control, a division of Medtronic Czechia s.r.o. The Association of Volunteer Fire Fighters of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, the Fire Brigade and the Prague Municipal Police jointly organized an accompanying programme for the general public, which was held on Saturday. In addition to presentations of fire-fighting and police equipment, there were dog and martial arts shows, a demonstration of rescuing a person from a crashed vehicle and a police operation involving an abseil, to name just a few examples.

Following a positive response from participants in the past years, the organizer of PRAGOALARM/PRAGOSEC 2011, Incheba Expo Praha, spol. s r. o., prepared a competition for the most attractive, interesting and illustrative stand, “TOP EXPO”. The jury consisted primarily of representatives of the media partners. The TOP EXPO award was granted to the stand of ATIS Group, s.r.o.
