An expo by any other name …
“It’s been gratifying to see IFSEC South Africa and OSH Expo Africa build reputations as world-class events that cater specifically to the South African and sub-Saharan African markets,” says Damion Angus, managing director of Montgomery.
“We are encouraged by the success to date of both shows, and we believe that, under their new brand names, they will remain the most important expos in their respective sectors in the African market going forward.”
The security, safety, fire and protection exhibition – IFSEC South Africa – is set to re-launch under the well-known Securex brand for this year’s show.
The Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Expo will be rebranded as African Occupational Safety and Health (A-OSH) Expo, and will run concurrently with Securex.
“It was an opportunity to reposition OSH Expo Africa under a new name to include a growing focus on environmental issues affecting safety and health professionals, and to grow the brand in Africa,” explains Gary Corin, managing director of Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery.
This popular expo is aimed at the African occupational health, safety and environmental markets and offers professionals and business operators, from across a broad range of industries, the opportunity to source new products, hear keynote seminars and take part in exclusive networking events tailored for the African market.
Securex and A-OSH Expo will run from May 12 to 14, at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg.
