Securex West Africa

February 2018 News, Conferences & Events, Training & Education

Securex West Africa is the most established security exhibition in West Africa, encompassing fire and rescue, commercial, homeland and cybersecurity. In 2017, the event saw 1935 industry visitors and 55 exhibitors take to the floor to showcase their products and discuss new business opportunities. For the 2018 edition, the expectation is that these numbers will be eclipsed with 2500 visitors and over 80 brands expected to congregate for the seventh edition of the regional event.

The event is held in Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria and, indeed, West Africa. It takes place at a purpose-built exhibition venue, The Landmark Centre, on Victoria Island from 20–21 March 2018.

Alongside the exhibition, a high-level conference programme will run with presentations, technical classes and panel discussions from the leading minds in the sector from across the region and around the globe. The conference is being constructed in close collaboration with the leading industry associations, commercial partners and ministries so that it focuses on the issues that are most pertinent for West Africa.

As well as the more conventional conference programme, 2018 will also see the return of the West African Cyber Security Summit (WACSS), which launched in 2017 to a full audience of cyber and security managers all wanting to understand better ways to protect their organisation from the growing threat posed by the Internet of things.

And, for the first time, 2018 will see Firexpo West Africa launched as its own event within Securex. It concentrates its attention on the fire and rescue industry and will have its own dedicated marketing campaign to galvanise those in the industry to meet at the maiden edition of the regions only focused industry event.

2018 will host the seventh edition in West Africa of this continent-wide exhibition, with sister shows in South Africa and Kenya and it promises to continue its place as the paramount platform for discussing business propositions and sharing initiatives within the sectors.
