Over the years, the exhibition has earned a high reputation among domestic and foreign experts. It has become a prestigious forum and traditionally attracts attention of leading manufacturers of special equipment and armaments both in our country and abroad.
The conferences, workshops, business meetings, which are held within the framework of the exhibition business program, will greatly contribute to the development of new scientific ideas in the sphere of creation of advanced models of armaments and special technical equipment.

I have pleasure to welcome all the participants of the NSS "Safe Capital" Forum!
In a situation where we constantly face problems that no country, no society, does not avoid: natural cataclysms, man-made accidents and catastrophes, the threat of terrorist acts, new challenges of the present - information risks - the need for modern effective methods and measures of protection against them is more urgent than ever.
Improving inter-ethnic relations, work with young people, interfaith dialogue, use of the media, the Internet community, strengthening civil unity on the basis of patriotism are some areas, which permit to counter national and religious extremism.
The discussions that will take place within the framework of the Forum will allow to discuss a lot of important problems, and I am sure, to find some ways to their solution. Particular attention should be paid to the prospects of improving situational centers, creating smart city elements, as well as the problems of interdepartmental interaction, the development of communal urban infrastructure, and one of the main issues on the agenda is the development of security measures at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and other major international sports, political, cultural events that will take place on the territory of our country.
I am sure that developed within the framework of the NSS "Safe Capital" Forum proposals on the introduction of management systems for all types of risks, monitoring, receiving and processing citizens' appeals, warning and informing the public, making and supporting decisions will be able to improve the effectiveness of management, ensure coordination of actions of government officials, operational services and non-state security structures.
