Securex South Africa 2018 celebrates 25 years

February 2018 News, Training & Education

Securex South Africa 2018 is returning to the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand from 22 to 24 May 2018. Securex 2018 is set to be a bumper edition, as the expo celebrates its 25th year, explains Sven Smit, portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery. “Securex was originally established in 1993, for the country’s private sector to support government-owned police and defence forces, and since then, the exhibition has grown from strength to strength, entrenching itself as the largest trade show of its kind on the continent today.”

Co-located with A-OSH EXPO, Africa’s leading occupational safety and health trade exhibition, the two shows drew in more than 7600 visitors in 2017 – with 5048 visitors attending Securex 2017 alone.

The 2018 show is set to feature more than 160 exhibiting companies, showcasing a full range of security-related products and services, including access control, biometrics, CCTV, cyber and IT security, fire detection and prevention systems, perimeter fencing and protection, retail security, training, vehicle and personnel tracking devices, X-ray scanning and screening equipment and more.

“And while we commemorate Securex’ quarter century anniversary, we can also confirm that the South African Intruder Detection Services Association (SAIDSA) will be honouring its own 50th birthday milestone at Securex 2018,” says Smit. “SAIDSA will once again be running its Tech-man competition at Securex 2018, where SAIDSA-certified technicians will compete against one another in a practical challenge.

“In addition, not only will the free-to-attend Securex seminar theatre keep attendees abreast of the latest in security trends, but they will also be able to see live demonstrations, conduct direct discussions with specialists, network with peers, and learn about new technologies and legislation,” Smit adds. “The show’s New Product Display area will also be front and centre, presenting the latest and greatest in security-focused products.”

Visitor entrance to both Securex South Africa 2018 and A-OSH EXPO 2018 is free.
