BANGKOK, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Thailand will be the proud host of the first ever ASIAN DISASTER RISK REDUCTION EXPO (ADRE) which will be held in Bangkok at the IMPACT exhibition Center, from 4-7 November. ADRE is fully supported by the Bangkok Administration and Bangkok Fire.

Economic losses from global disasters have now exceeded $100 billion for three consecutive years, from 2010 to 2012 - the first time this has happened, according to the U.N. Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR). The financial cost of from disasters is projected to grow, making prevention all the more urgent. By 2100, even without climate change, damage from weather-related hazards may triple to $185 billion annually. Climate change can add another $28-$68 billion from tropical cyclones alone. According to the report, property damage between 1970 and 2008 totaled $2,300 billion with earthquakes and droughts causing most of the losses. As a result Asian governments are currently investing billions of dollars in disaster risk reduction programs.

ADRE will focus on rescue and disaster management products and services in these and other areas. The show will showcase equipment and technology in rescue and disaster management which is now becoming available in today's market. It will greatly help in Prevention/Mitigation, Detection, Response, and Recovery from man-made and natural disasters including earthquakes, typhoons, major floods, fires and droughts.

General Sumpun Boonyanan (Former Minister of Defence, Kingdom of Thailand & Special Advisor) said, "ADRE's objective is to diminish risks through technology and systematic efforts to analyze and reduce disaster factors. ADRE 2014 will provide unique networking and business opportunities for manufacturers in the industry and policies & decision makers in rescue and disaster management from Asia Pacific and Thailand."

ADRE 2014 is projected to host more than 200 exhibitors from 15 countries and will feature national pavilions from mainland China, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, and numerous other countries. The exhibition will be trade-only and is set to be internationally recognized as a must- attend event for world leading companies. Over 8,000 quality trade visitors from both public and private agencies are expected to attend the premiere event.

One of the highlights of ADRE 2014 will be an outstanding program of Seminars and Conferences that will be delivered by top international experts. Discussions will cover policy, lessons learned, best practices, along with forward planning, resulting in the mitigation of loss of life and property when catastrophic events occur.

ADRE 2014 is co-located with The International Security, Safety, Expo & Forum 2014 (ISF) - Thailand's Leading Commercial & Homeland Security Exhibition. ISF will feature both commercial and internal security products that have been specially designed for private companies along with state enterprises including airports, maritime facilities, borders, banks, retailers, schools, hotels, and more. Both events are managed by GML Exhibition, the organizer of Defense & Security.
