Securex postponed to August 2020 due to COVID-19

Issue 3 2020 Editor's Choice

Specialised Exhibitions has taken decisive action following developments in the COVID-19 national state of disaster. The organisation has opted to reschedule its Securex South Africa, A-OSH Expo and Facilities Management Expo trade shows to 18 to 20 August 2020. The three co-located shows will still take place at Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg.

“Measures declared by the President on Sunday evening 15 March included a ‘ban on mass gatherings of more than 100 people’, as well as social distancing,” says Gary Corin, managing director of Specialised Exhibitions. “We fully support this pronouncement, and in consideration of the safety and wellbeing of our exhibitors, suppliers and visitors – and indeed the industry as a whole – as top priority, have decided to postpone the expos to later in the year.

“Specialised Exhibitions looks forward to hosting a strong showing for the safety, security and built environments later this year, and appreciates the support of all stakeholders.”
