Build your brand at Securex 2017
Securex 2017, Africa’s largest security and fire exhibition, returns to Gauteng on May 30 and runs to June 1. Hosted at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, it offers a platform from which products are launched to receptive target audiences. Joshua Low, Securex event director, says customers are keen to acquire information on best practice and seek out accessible ways to contact suppliers.
“Securex is the ideal interactive medium for the market to connect with leading manufacturers and suppliers of security and fire products and services,” he comments. The organiser expects 6 000 visitors and more than 160 exhibitors representing 13 countries. “Securex 2016 was extremely successful, with a 20-percent increase in visitors achieved over the three-day period,” Low says.
In preparation for this year’s event, new exhibitions have been added based on market research survey results, while popular exhibitions are due to return. “In order to remain as comprehensive in our technology coverage as possible, we continually review the security and fire sectors,” Low explains.
CCTV and surveillance equipment, fire-protection products and systems, retail security as well as X-ray and body-scanner equipment are some of the many solutions to be showcased.
Visitor attractions at Securex 2017 will include a display of new products situated at the entrance to the exhibition, the Securex Seminar Theatre, the Fire Protection Association South Africa (FPASA) half-day workshop, the Electronic Security Distributors Association (ESDA) breakfast and the South African Intruder Detection Service Association (SAIDSA) Techman Competition.
With less than four months to the expo, and only 35 percent of planned stand space available for interested exhibitors, Low urges those interested in exhibiting to book their stands soon.
