Securex South Africa, A-OSH and Facilities Management Expo postponed to 2022

Issue 6 2021 Editor's Choice

Specialised Exhibitions, a division of Montgomery Group, has made the difficult decision to postpone Securex South Africa, A-OSH Expo and Facilities Management Expo.

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 Securex, A-OSH Expo and Facilities Management Expo, planned for 2021 at Gallagher Convention Centre, to 31 May - 2 June 2022 at the same venue.

“Measures declared by the President on 12 September 2021 to move the country to Adjusted Alert Level 2 with a ban on mass gatherings of more than 250 people, as well as social distancing, led us to the decision to postpone the events,” says Gary Corin, managing director of Specialised Exhibitions. “Even with the shows being 80% sold out and minimal cancellations, we had no choice but to postpone the shows.

“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 this range of shows to 2022.

“We remain confident that with the vaccine rollout strategy that we will host the shows in May next year and look forward to a strong event for the security, occupational health and safety, and facilities management industries.

“Our exhibitions provide a platform for our exhibitors to engage face-to-face with their clients, launch new products and stay up to date with industry trends. We as humans crave socialisation and networking with new individuals. Face-to-face events provide countless opportunities to connect with others in a way that cannot be achieved online. It’s our human nature to congregate with each other, people have slowly and safely started re-engaging, and it’s time for business to do that again in the events and exhibitions environment.

“We demonstrated our ability as an industry to do this under COVID-19 health protocols during our ‘Restart Expo’ in November 2020. We look forward to our industry opening and taking a leadership position when delivering business-to-business exhibitions.

“We appreciate the input, engagement and support of all industry stakeholders.”
