The Indian chapter of NürnbergMesse, one of the fastest growing exhibition companies in Europe, will be bringing the it-sa – IT security expo and conference to India on May 24 and 25, 2018, at Mumbai.

The parent show in Germany, it-sa, is the leading show in Europe on the topic of cybersecurity with more than 620 exhibitors and over 9800 square meters of exhibition space.

it-sa India will provide a podium for industry experts and solution providers to showcase, discuss, and deliberate on latest technologies in the realm of cybersecurity.

Dr. Roland Fleck, CEO of the NürnbergMesse Group, organizer of the expo+conference, believes that the new event is the next logical step in NürnbergMesse’s strategy of internationalization. “The market for IT security is developing apace in South Asia, just as it is elsewhere. In view of the skills we have developed with the leading European exhibition, it-sa in Nuremberg, it makes sense to expand our presence in one of the most important industry centers for IT security.”
