Be part of something special

Enforce Tac, the international security exhibition, experienced a fantastic 2022 show despite the difficult global circumstances at the time. Now, for 2023, the show is going to be even bigger, as Gun Trade World discovers.

EnforceTac 2022 took place in Nuremberg, Germany in March, a time when Russia had just begun its invasion of the Ukraine. This represented an uncertain time for buyers and sellers, nevertheless the exhibition displayed good numbers - 373 exhibitors as well as 4,071 professionals visited the event, held during the two days before IWA OutdoorClassics.

The history

The growing interest in an international, but above all discreet, exchange on law enforcement, security and tactical equipment led to the premiere of Enforce Tac in 2012 as an independent, closed special exhibition in the NürnbergMesse congress center. 

Since then, Enforce Tac has developed impressively. In 2022, 373 exhibitors as well as 4,071 visitors came to Enforce Tac in Nuremberg. The success convinced the trade of the shows’ relevance and importance. The EnforceTac team discovered that 96 per cent of exhibitors reached their most important target groups and 94 per cent of exhibitors made new business connections.

Record-breaking display area for Enforce Tac 2023

Recently it was disclosed that, as early as six months before the opening of trade fair for tactical solutions for internal and external security, the display area booked is 15 percent higher than at the record-breaking 2022 event. It’s a result that can be attributed to the high level of satisfaction among exhibitors and visitors.

“This represents a huge tick of approval for us and the work we are doing,” says the Enforce Tac organising team. “The participating exhibitors are fully supportive of the trade fair. The strict admission criteria and meticulous accreditation process ensure a high quality of visitors that is much appreciated.”

Expansion for 2023

In 2023, the professional audience at Enforce Tac can look forward to 17,520 square meters 

of exhibition space, much more than before (13,730 m2 in 2019). To get to the highly specialised product range on display, visitors will now use Mitte Entrance rather than West Entrance. The restricted exhibition area is complemented by practical workshops and high-calibre congresses. The programme also offers a blend of old favourites and new highlights. The trade fair’s response to the great diversity of exhibitors and products has been to expand the demonstration area. In 2023, alongside the exciting product presentations, Enforce Tac will also offer live demonstrations of practical applications to join the dots between theory and practice. Exhibitors are called upon to take advantage of this opportunity and even provide input for the design of this area. “For example, if an exhibitor needs a demonstration track to effectively showcase a vehicle, we can arrange this,” says Isabelle Teufert, Director of Enforce Tac at NürnbergMesse. 

Online, the sector will also benefit from the digital presentation of several product highlights. In 2023, the YouTube format Enforce Tac TV will go into its second round, bridging the gap between online and ‘on-demand’.

Excitement about reunion of the sector

There is a huge anticipation about the reunion of the sector that only an on-site exhibition can offer. Exhibitors are excited to be showing off their latest products in a vibrant and expanding exhibition. Isabelle Teufert commented: “At an in-person event, exhibitors, visitors and media representatives all get talking to one another. As an international platform, Enforce Tac offers the ideal venue for professional dialogue and a confidential atmosphere.” 

At the end of the first day of the exhibition visitors can look forward to a social get-together, participants can look forward to an incredibly special schedule to celebrate the 10th round of Enforce Tac.
