More success with Securex 2017
Securex 2017 proved, once again, to be the premier exhibition for fire and security solutions in Africa. The 5 048 visitors were spoiled for choice with 121 local and 53 international exhibitors. Visitor feedback was extremely positive with many citing high-quality products and knowledgeable personnel as highlights.
Eduan Beetge of Evenflow noted: “There were a number of exhibitor stands that really blew me away.”
Similar high levels of satisfaction were expressed by exhibitors. Naomi Sekae from Pabalelo Security commented: “Last year Pabalelo Security exhibited at Securex for the first time and as a result we won a large contract to provide a maintenance service on the X-Ray inspection equipment at a number of sites for a large South African parastatal.”
While Securex is characterised by predominantly local content, two new overseas exhibitors were particularly happy with the response they received to their brands.
“This was our first time at Securex, promoting our desk wall system. We have been inundated with the interest from visitors wanting to either distribute or buy our products. We have no doubt that we will return to Securex again as the market penetration into Africa is clearly evident here,” said José Garcia from Gesab in Spain.
Martine Billmann from Genetec in Canada pointed out: “We felt that Securex would be the ideal platform to present our offerings to the African market and we have not been disappointed.”
Apart from the wide array of local and international security and fire offerings, Securex’s value–added visitor attractions again drew in the crowds. Speaking at the ESDA breakfast, Emma Sadleir drew a very sobering picture of the legal issues that can arise from social media and added that there is evidence that we are chemically addicted to social media on our mobile devices.
Bookings to exhibit at Securex 2018 can now be made by visiting the Securex website.
