Success for Securexpo East Africa 2018
April 2018, News, Conferences & Events, Training & Education

The Nairobi-based exhibition, Securexpo East Africa, has reported another successful year with a 28% increase in attendees from 2015 over the three days (31 January – 2 February 2018).

Visitors came from all over Africa with 23 countries represented. Kenya made up the majority of the show’s audience, with other notable countries present being; Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Somalia and the DRC.

With over 80 brands on display, visitors saw technical demonstrations and live equipment from companies such as Ambient System, Axxon Soft, Bristol Fire, Centurion Systems, Connectel Inc, Dahua, Hikvision, Hytera Communications, Idemia, Matrix and Smartworld. The results from the exhibition appear to be extremely good with over 50% of the exhibition signing up for the next event.

Investment was a prominent theme at this year’s show, with 46% of visitors attending with the intention of purchasing new equipment or establishing new market suppliers. The collective audience budget reflected this at over US$350 million. 75% of attendees were decision-makers or involved in the decision-making process, and over 57% were senior management or business owners.

“The results from the show this year are extremely positive. Despite the Kenyan market having gone through a turbulent six months politically, Securexpo grew again this year welcoming new companies to Kenya. This certainly demonstrates that the local industry is keen to pick up where it left off. The feedback has been superb and we are incredibly excited about next year,” says Alexander Angus, regional director at Securexpo East Africa.

Taking place alongside the wider exhibition, the Securexpo Conference saw 18 industry speakers take to the stage to provide exclusive market insights, trend analysis and technology observations. Topics at this year’s conference covered commercial security, fire and safety. Focused cybersecurity sessions proved particularly popular, confirming the region’s increased demand for protection against rising cybercrime rates.
