Milipol Qatar is the leading international exhibition dedicated to homeland security in the Middle East. It takes place every two years (even-numbered years) in Doha. The 11th edition of the show will be held from 31 October to 02 November 2016 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC).
The worldwide exhibition of internal State security – Milipol – has been organized for the first time in 1984 in Paris and occurs every odd-numbered year. In 1996, the State of Qatar chose the Milipol trademark for its international references to launch an event dedicated to homeland security in the Middle East.
The Milipol Qatar exhibition is being held under the authority of the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior H.E. Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al-Thani. A Milipol Qatar Committee is responsible for the organisation of the event in Doha.
Teams in Paris and Doha have been working in close relationship for 20 years to make Milipol Qatar the main international exhibition dedicated to homeland security in the Middle-East due to the professionalism and the quality of exhibitors and visitors. Milipol Qatar provides access to security markets in the entire region and enables key international industry players to meet in a fast-developing environment with medium- to long-term economic and strategic projects.
The event is known for showcasing the latest innovative products and services and for covering all fields of public and industrial security.
In 2014, the show welcomed 261 exhibitors, 6,583 security professionals and 146 official delegates.
