History & Success Story

Higher – faster – further

Perimeter Protection has been on a continuous growth course since it began in 2010. While the trade fair started out with 47 exhibitors at that time, it reached a record high in 2023 with 198 exhibitors  99 of them international. The high proportion of international exhibitors in particular highlights the global importance of perimeter protection in the security sector.

In 2014, NürnbergMesse GmbH took over Perimeter Protection completely into its exhibition portfolio. This has resulted in valuable synergies in the Electronics and Security Cluster with the other trade fairs Enforce Tac, Feuer Trutz and it-sa to date. The enormous growth potential of the security exhibition finally prompted a move from Hall 12 to Halls 1 and 2 in 2023. With this innovation, NürnbergMesse made the exhibitors' wish for larger areas possible. Because: the international exhibitors in particular had more than doubled their space in 2023 compared with 2020. The overall exhibitor statements also reflect the growth: due to the unexpected rush of visitors in 2023, some companies would have needed larger stands to better serve the enormous crowds. To date, Perimeter Protection has also achieved the unique position among security trade shows internationally and remains the undisputed meeting place for the security industry in Europe.

  • Perimeter Protection made its beginnings in 2010 with 47 exhibitors, 11 of them from abroad, and 1,620 visitors.
  • In 2023, the trade fair reached a new record in its history with 198 exhibitors, 99 of them international, and almost 5,400 visitors from 55 countries.
