How does it work?

·         Before the exhibition,recruit and and/or intermediate users: a project detection campaign is conducted with more than 2,500 decision-makers, end and/or intermediate users. Exhibitors highlight the specificities of their products and/or solutions. Clients and intermediaries describe their projects and needs.

·         The choice of appointments: on the basis of these presentations, each participant selects the interlocutors they wish to meet during the exhibition.

·         The appointment schedule: the appointment schedules are edited according to the choices and time constraints of each participant (with priority given to principals and intermediaries). This schedule is sent to you a few days before the exhibition to allow exhibitors to prepare their appointments.

·         During the exhibition: the decision makers and intermediaries are welcomed at the entrance of the exhibition by our dedicated team, present on site to ensure the smooth running of the appointments. They arrive at the stands of the exhibitors with whom they have an appointment at the time indicated in the schedule.

Conference and workshop program

 Several formats: conferences, round tables, workshops, training and feedback.

4 main cycles: trends and innovations, professions and training, regulations, feedback.

APS 2019 Awards

Once again this year, the most innovative products and solutions in the safety and security market will be rewarded at the APS 2019 Innovation Awards.

Find out what the winners of previous editions have to say about this emblematic ceremony!

"Our APS Trophy gave us a great visibility throughout the event but also, upstream, through the media. Some visitors came specifically to discover the award-winning parking management solution. Some referencing us in the field, others going so far as to consider a future investment. Overall we are delighted with this second participation in APS. In addition to the traffic generated by the trophy, we received a large number of visitors, some of them end customers, our target. Finally, the workshop on which we involved the CNIL alongside us was very educational and appreciated by the audience. In addition, it showed that Horoquartz attaches real importance to regulatory requirements in the development of its products. We are already considering our participation in the next edition." Maude Baudrand (Marketing Project Manager) - HOROQUARTZ, APS Bronze Award

"Overall over the 3 days of the show, we are satisfied. This is indeed our first participation in APS and we have met many of our clients. They have come to us and this allows us to meet each other in a different way. Many customers but also several prospects and not the least since we were able to establish a real dialogue with the City of Paris, the Paris Fire Brigade or the Ministry of the Armed Forces. The presence of our Exosphère mobile PC has enabled us to reference Onet in all safety/security professions and this was our objective on APS. We will repeat the experience." Anthony Malot (Sales Manager) and Lionel Ktorza (Business Development Manager) - ONET SECURITY

"We have been participating in the APS exhibition for several years and we are still very satisfied. Meetings with integrators and end customers (banks, ministries, industries, services, etc.) seem to be conducive to quality projects. In addition, our APS 2017 trophy gave us a good visibility before and during the show for our range of access control readers. We will be pleased to participate in the next edition of the APS exhibition", Maé Tholoniat (Marketing Product Manager) - Stid - APS Silver Award.

"We observed a good attendance and we received people on a regular basis on our stand during the 3 days of the exhibition. We mainly welcomed installers but also French and foreign end customers. These contacts were of high quality and we believe that some projects will be able to materialize in the coming months", Arnaud Blachère - Communications Manager Francofa Eurodis.

Startup Village

"It was 3 days of quality trade show, especially the first and the morning of the second. We were delighted with the visit of the TF1 team... and the immediate result that boosted the traffic to our website, if not just our presence at the show. Overall, we had a good attendance, half of whom were security operators. The contacts established corresponded perfectly to our expectations and allowed us to meet our objectives of testing the appetite of integrators, installers and distributors of security solutions." Emmanuel Aucouturier Manager at ABCD INNOVATION.

"We were surprised by the number of visitors, especially during the first two days, and for our first participation in the start-up village, we were very satisfied with the quality of the people we met and their interest in these new technologies. APS is more oriented towards security professionals and it was very important for us to test the reaction of these actors to this system, which is totally new to them. Our only regret is that we did not really have any visits from investors or business angels to support our development, but we did appreciate the press service, which relayed our messages well." Norbert Ducrot, Founder and CEO of CORBOT ROBOT ROBOTICS

"APS was very positive for the visibility of our innovation among new clients but also to identify new short-term projects.

The success depends a lot on the support of the Show's teams, and even if it was costly to invest so much time and budget upstream, the results are beyond our expectations." Mathieu Destrian President of INTELLINIUM

"The 3 days were very intense and the visits were spread over the entire duration of the show. We spent between 15 and 45 minutes per visitor. Very few came by chance. The market lacks digital and mobile solutions, and we have noticed a great interest in our solution. Customers (company security managers, local authorities), with some very short-term equipment projects or potential partners (manufacturers and integrators or consulting / training in security plan and crisis management), we have obtained very satisfactory initial contacts. We were not sure, but the event allowed us to meet the targets we are addressing. Depending on the evolution of our solution and our schedule, we may wish to return to APS in 2019." Boris Berger, President of WARY ME
