Securex postponed to June 2021

Issue 3 2020 News

Following developments in the COVID-19 national state of disaster and various levels of lockdown, Specialised Exhibitions, a division of the Montgomery Group, has taken decisive action with its portfolio of exhibitions.

In consultation with the security, occupational health and safety and facilities management industries, and allowing for the negative effects of COVID-19 on public health and the economy, the organisation is postponing the Securex, A-OSH and FM expos, slated for August 2020 at Gallagher Convention Centre, to June 1 -3, 2021, at the same venue.

“Measures declared by the President on Sunday the 15th of March included a ‘ban on mass gatherings of more than 100 people’, as well as social distancing, and subsequently has enforced a complete lockdown of South Africa exempting only essential services” says Gary Corin, managing director of Specialised Exhibitions. “We fully support this pronouncement and measures taken by Government in instituting a country wide lockdown (currently Level 4). The safety and wellbeing of our exhibitors, suppliers and visitors – and indeed the industry as a whole – is of paramount importance, hence the decision to postpone the shows to 2021.

“Specialised Exhibitions looks forward to hosting a strong post-COVID-19 event for the security, occupational health and safety and facilities management industries in 2021. We appreciate the input, engagement and support of all industry stakeholders.”
