IFSEC South Africa 2013

June 2013 News

After two decades and having entrenched its reputation as Africa’s largest commercial security, homeland security and fire event, IFSEC South Africa 2013 looks set to exceed both visitor and exhibitor expectations when it opens for this annual three-day event at Gallagher Convention Centre in June.

Running from 18-20 June 2013, IFSEC South Africa is the quintessential event for local and global security professionals and senior decision-makers looking to source the latest security innovations from a wide range of world-class exhibitors in an information rich environment filled with networking opportunities.

“We are delighted with the continuous growth of IFSEC South Africa,” says Charlene Hefer, event director, UBM Montgomery. “Our team has worked hard to offer a world-class show that not only draws a growing number of visitors but ensures that all of our exhibitors experience maximum return on their marketing investment.”

With more than 6000 visitors expected to attend this year’s event, IFSEC South Africa 2013 will present a multitude of networking opportunities. The show will have more than 200 exhibitors in attendance, including leading industry names such as Elvey Security Technologies, Hikvision, Muvoni, NEC and Bruker.

Hefer adds that the IFSEC South Africa team has worked diligently to form strong relationships with the leading local security associations, select the most appropriate media partners to help promote and market the show, as well as include a host of new features that will add significant value to the event.

IFSEC South Africa’s educational component includes an Interactive Seminar that runs throughout the show alongside the exhibition. It features top local and international speakers addressing topics such as the local security landscape and how to source the most appropriate solutions for even the most challenging security applications.

Launching the Firex Pavilion

Having recognised the steady growth of the Fire Detection and Fire Prevention market, UBM Montgomery is pleased to launch the Firex Pavilion at IFSEC South Africa 2013. To ensure that this new component of the show adds great value to both visitors and exhibitors, the show organisers have partnered with leading industry associations, including the Fire Protection Association of Southern Africa (FPASA).

The Homeland Safety and Security Africa Conference and Exhibition Zone, will once again provide a platform for national security stakeholders who want to learn more about the most progressive technology for cyber security, national resilience, counter-terrorism, airport and border security, surveillance services, mining security and policing issues.

The show, Hefer goes on to say, is ideal for those buyers looking to source the latest products in a wide range of categories, including access control, biometrics CCTV, CIT, guarding, integrated security and IP and network security, as well as retail risk and money handling solutions. “We ensure that every aspect of the industry is covered,” she says. “A visitor can cover months of market research in just one visit – providing the best solutions for protecting people, property and premises.”

IFSEC South Africa has also partnered with Redi Laser to present an electronic laser simulator shooting competition. This is open to all our exhibitors and visitors and the sharpest shooter will walk away with the R10 000 prize.

“IFSEC South Africa has established a reputation as Africa’s leading security and fire event,” says Hefer. “With a brand new host of features, we expect even greater trade interest this June,” she concluded.
