Security and fire solutions under one roof

May 2016 News

Tackling crime head on requires a manifold approach that encompasses the involvement of various stakeholders including the government and its agencies, the private sector, the private security industry and the citizens of the country. A proactive mindset regarding monitoring and prevention of criminal activity remains a priority and a challenge.

Sourcing the services and technology required to alleviate and mitigate risk is often complex and extremely time consuming, resulting in frustration and exasperation. Securex, Africa’s leading security and fire exhibition, brings the best brands in industry, along with a large number of knowledgeable industry spokespeople together in a common venue over a concentrated three-day period.

Hosted at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, from 24 to 26 May, Securex 2016 is the ultimate meeting place for technology/service providers and industry professionals. “The interactive platform allows visitors to pose challenging questions to the over 150 exhibitors in a concerted effort to find cost effective and tangible solutions. These interfaces are complemented by a very comprehensive and thought-provoking free-to-attend educational programme held at the Securex Seminar Theatre,” says Joshua Low, Securex Event Director at Specialised Exhibitions.

Other attractions

Visitor attractions at Securex 2016 include a New Products Display, the Ideco Networking Lounge and the Business Matchmaking Service sponsored by Ideco, which allows visitors to be pre-matched with relevant exhibitors. This initiative provides the opportunity for meetings to be arranged in advance of the exhibition, thereby maximising the visitor’s time at Securex 2016. The InFiRES seminar, hosted by FPASA will be run once again.

Débuting this year is the SAIDSA Tech Man Competition. The event involves 20 of the top certified technicians in South Africa competing to wire up an intruder alarm system within a specified time, according to strict criteria. They will be judged on neatness, correct standards and installation techniques.

Securex is aligned with a number of industry bodies that include ASIS, ESDA, FFETA, FPASA, ISS, PSiRA, SAIS, SAIDSA, SASA and SIA.

Securex will again be co-located with A-OSH EXPO, Africa’s leading source for occupational health and safety (OHS) products and services. The exhibition, now in its sixth year, covers all aspects of OHS risk analysis and alleviation.

Visitors can pre-register online at www.securex.co.za to avoid the queues at the exhibition. To book a stand or discuss a sponsorship package, prospective exhibitors are encouraged to contact Sven Riddle or Zelda Jordaan on: svenr@specialised.com or zeldaj@specialised.com or visit www.securex.co.za

Finding solutions

“We have a very diverse range of products and services at this year’s event, resulting in the guarantee that visitors from all walks of industry will be able to find a security and fire solution best suited to their specific threats and risks,” says Low.
