There was a 28-percent increase in the number of visitors at A-OSH Expo 2015. The stage is set now for Africa’s leading occupational health and safety exhibition to bring the latest products and services to a discerning audience of industry professionals at the 2016 event.
“We introduced two new features this year: the ‘Business Matchmaking Programme’, that matched visitors up with the most relevant exhibitors; and the ‘Fire Hazard Identification Challenge’. This was based on a simulated office environment with six to eight fire hazards that had to be identified by participants,” Joshua Low, event director at Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, points out.
The Fire Protection Association of Southern Africa (FPASA) also ran its InFIRes conference alongside A-OSH Expo for the first time. “This is a CPD- accredited event, aimed at technical insurance people,” Low adds.
“The conference was a great success, attracting over 100 people from some of the leading insurance companies in South Africa. Based on the success of these events, FPASA has agreed to host the conference alongside A-OSH Expo in 2016.”
The educational programme at A-OSH Expo was lauded by visitors as being among the best in the market. In 2016, Noshebo Theatre seminar and the PASMA Working at Height Theatre, will provide industry-riveting content on trends, legislation and best practice.
The ever-popular South African Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (Saiosh) conference will, once again, feature strongly and visitors are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment …
A-OSH Expo 2016 is scheduled to take place between May 24 and 26, 2016.
“We can report that 54 percent of total stand space has already been allocated. We therefore encourage potential exhibitors to contact the sales team without delay to ensure they don’t miss out on this unparalleled opportunity to interact with the leading professionals in the safety, health and environmental sectors,” Low concludes.
