Increasing visitor value at Securex 2015

February 2015 News

Securex 2015 has a number of new features in store for visitors. “In addition to the name change we adopted in late 2014, we have also conducted market research to determine what the majority of our visitors would like to see at Securex,” says Joshua Low, Securex event director at show organiser Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery.

The Securex Global Academy Conference will provide visitors with access to up to the minute information on best practice, as well as pertinent industry-related and legislative issues. “Our free educational programme is always very popular with visitors. In fact, the demand is so high that often there is standing room only in many of the sessions,” says Low.

The Installer Workshop is being launched at Securex 2015 to address the gap in what is deemed a very important sector of the industry. This interactive educational platform, which will be run by SAIDSA, will provide installers with the latest technology trends and best practice from specialists in the field. Topping off the programme, an installer competition will be run on 14 May.

A New Products Showcase will be erected in a prominent area at the entrance to Securex 2015. This will allow visitors to preview the latest technology in a number of security and fire modalities before even entering Securex 2015.

A new service – known as the Global Meetings Programme – will see visitors matched up with companies that are best able to devise solutions to their apparent threats and risks. This will substantially reduce the time it takes to find a suitable supplier, allowing visitors to maximise their time at Securex 2015.

In addition to the extensive array of traditional security technology such as surveillance and access control, visitors to Securex 2015 can also look forward to more in-depth coverage of other security modalities such as cybersecurity and guarding services. Attention to the growing field of fire detection, monitoring and prevention will increase and the Fire Protection Association of South Africa (FPASA) will run a competition throughout the three days of the exhibition.

“We have a number of other exciting plans in the pipeline and we will be rolling these out over the months preceding the exhibition,” Low points out.
