“The Bosch solution increases the effectiveness and efficiency of our security personnel by centrally coordinating their work. It enables us to work closely with other departments to make the right decisions at the right times to protect our visitors and exhibitors.”
Dimitrios Donis, Corporate Security Management, Messe Frankfurt

When required, officers stationed at the onsite police station can access a Bosch video monitoring system with around 300 networked IP cameras installed in all indoor and outdoor areas, without interrupting transmission of live images for all other users.

They have the use of a surveillance center with a video wall and 12 operator workplaces for the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS). This makes it easy to efficiently coordinate all field personnel, prevent crimes and investigate infractions while fully complying with all applicable data privacy and protection requirements.

Personnel in the control & security center keep an eye on the exhibition grounds around the clock, and the police station and security force facility are also staffed year-round. This core team is bolstered by contracted service providers during trade shows and events.

The capacities are scaled up or down depending on an event’s size. During the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), for example, when up to 100,000 visitors a day enter the exhibition grounds, between 100 and 150 members of Messe Frankfurt’s security service are on duty, reinforced by the security personnel of large exhibitors.
