The biennial GPEC fair (General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference) is Europe’s biggest industry-only special trade fair showcasing police equipment and security technology. As an important industry and technology fair, this eighth GPEC event which runs from September 9-11, 2014, will provide a range of information for trade visitors from police and other public safety services. The last event, GPEC 2012, attracted more than 6,500 visitors from 59 countries and almost 500 national and international exhibitors from 29 countries and five continents.
This year, BMW is once again presenting a diverse range of practical and purpose-designed emergency and security vehicles that meet the standards not only of performance, functionality and safety but also of efficiency and fuel economy. At GPEC, BMW will be showing seven emergency and security vehicles and motorcycles, including the public authority versions of the BMW R1200RT and BMW F800GT motorcycle models. The GPEC exhibits further include a range of special-purpose rider accessories and safety equipment.
BMW will also be showing the new BMW X5 Security Plus (VR 6 – BRV 2009), as well as the latest, extensively revised BMW X3 xDrive. A helicopter stretcher in the BMW X5 Security (VR 4 – BRV 2009) will be shown for the first time. This BMW X5 Security model is suitable for a wide range of applications, and provides valuable assistance particularly in incidents where protectees require medical attention. Completing the range of car exhibits is a BMW 530d Sedan in an unmarked video pursuit vehicle version.
