Paris, 28 October 2015 – Major risks are one of the five major topics of the 19th edition of Milipol Paris. Ever since 2009 a distinctive area at the heart of the exhibition is dedicated to this particularly sensitive issue of Internal State Security.
The 50 exhibitors of this special zone will present innovations in all matters linked to prevention, protection, surveillance, detection, identification, analysis and crisis response.
As a privileged Partner for this exhibition, the French High Committee for Civil Defense (HCFDC) will be present on this segment and will be conducting talk shows on areas related to internal security, risk and major threats control as well as civil resilience.
A first this year, fire brigades, civil defence units and first responder divisions will be contributing to the show by leading workshops and roundtables.
In order to offer quality programmes for their conferences, the organisers have invited the top specialists in their area of expertise. On the Major Risk question, Emilie HOUGH, the founder and Editor in Chief of the Crisis Response Journal and Philippe NARDIN, Head of Mission for the French Ministry of the Interior for International civil security have currently joined the Committee of Experts for the 2015 edition.
