Speaking at the announcement of the IFSEC Virtual Expo and the OSH Virtual Expo, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India, said, "Businesses and workplaces are currently at a tipping point in their journey to recover from the pandemic. Although budgets are a constraint, sizeable investments in surveillance and digital transformation have been necessary in the professional establishments. Besides, commercial establishments continue to face complex challenges associated with enabling a remote workforce, a significant percentage of whom have dealt with stress, overcoming supply chain disruption, or embracing new digital platforms. These platforms will continue to serve in the future. For instance, the global electronic security systems market, estimated at US$45 billion due to Covid-19 is expected to reach $70. 4 Billion by 2027. It is therefore critical for the relevant businesses to leverage as well as understand trends and latest offerings which our shows offer."  

"The shows are also significant additions and contributors to our Super September - Virtual B2B Celebrations. The digital celebration caters to green energy, pharma, travel and tourism, packaging, occupational health & safety and security and surveillance along with a host of conferences. This year, with our strategy to implement a hybrid version of shows, the digital offerings in September will complement the physical shows," he further added.  

According to Mr. Pankaj Jain, Group Director, and Digital Head, Informa Markets in India, "While one cannot overstate the importance of physical expos, our virtual events enabled us to keep the community engaged. After all, digital consumption has grown substantially in the pandemic, and will continue to do so.
