The Enforce Tac 2024 security trade fair is a key player in the industry when it comes to internal and external security. What can trade visitors expect?

Isabelle Teufert from NürnbergMesse is the Exhibition Director of Enforce Tac 2024.

Let's start with an important new event: Enforce Tac 2024, which has been conceptually further developed and expanded in terms of space, is strengthening its commitment to security and cooperation with the premiere of the Scandinavian-German Defence Symposium .

The team headed by Exhibition Director Isabelle Teufert has announced another premiere for Enforce Tac 2024. “We keep a close eye on developments within the industry and adapt to new needs by developing pragmatic solutions,” explains Teufert. “In this case, we are focussing on international procurement processes, especially between Scandinavia and Germany, in line with the current increased procurement needs.”

NATO enlargement to include Finland and Sweden brings initial consequences

Norway and Germany currently have one of the largest partnerships for defence and economic projects in Europe. At the same time, NATO is welcoming Sweden and Finland, which further strengthens the alliance. These developments are enough to underpin the thematic focus set for Enforce Tac 2024 in collaboration with initiators David Faller (Solid Ground) and Dr. Christian Wildhagen (Nordisk Konsult). In addition to Faller and Wildhagen, stakeholders from the German Armed Forces Planning Office, the International Chamber of Commerce Norway, MIDSEC Norge and the Federation of German Security and Defence Industries (BDSV) will also be in attendance. “The aim of the symposium is to promote and intensify closer relationships, provide insights into the future requirements of the armed forces, highlight challenges and explore opportunities for cooperation in procurement processes,” Teufert concludes, emphasising the central importance of the event and the Enforce Tac 2024 platform for the industry.

Enforce Tac 2024: 9,000 visitors expected over three days

The new Enforce Tac Village: a realistic training area where exhibitors' products are presented in realistic law enforcement and military scenarios. Everything will also be transmitted to the halls via video.

“The number of exhibitor enquiries remains at a high level. Halls 7A and 7 are fully booked,” says Thomas Mahler, Sales Manager of Enforce Tac, reflecting on current sales. Visitors can therefore look forward to an unprecedented variety of exhibitors. The highly specialized products and services offered by the 680 exhibitors already registered for 2024 (2023: 544) will be complemented by the multifaceted supporting programme at this year’s Enforce Tac. In addition to the Enforce Tac VILLAGE, Enforce Tac TV and the Enforce Tac BLACKBOX, Enforce Tac 2024 has a whole raft of high-quality items on its programme.

These are the new Enforce Tac 2024 events:

Dom, author, photographer and editor of the magazine, will be available for a meet-and-greet throughout the event in the walkway area of Hall 7A.
  • DHPol organises specialist conference "Weapons and protective equipment"
