Securex - the key to personal marketing
December 2002, Conferences & Events
Over the past seven years, Securex has firmly established itself as the premier security show in the country focusing on security, fire protection and asset management technologies - all critical components of effective business management.
This year, over 4900 visitors attended the show and 123 exhibitors - local and international - participated in Securex. Reed Exhibitions - the organisers of the show - is expecting another bumper show next year with the relocation to Sandton Convention Centre which is ideally situated in a booming business hub.
"As a leading exhibition organiser, Reed hosts its shows in venues which offer advanced facilities and equipment as exhibitors and visitors are increasingly demanding only the best. We aim to provide manufacturers and distributors with facilities and amenities which will add value to their product/service displays. Sandton Convention Centre meets our requirements in this regard," says Lynn Chamier, general manager of Reed Exhibitions SA.
Recent studies show that the South African security market is showing steady growth. The industry boasts a significant degree of innovation based on this country's historical 'security orientated' mindset and its relatively harsh operating environment. "What better medium to continue to promote the security industry than Securex," adds Chamier. "Not even the flood of information on the Internet can kill off the power of exhibitions and the human interaction it offers."
It is interesting to note that around the world marketers are increasingly looking to exhibitions as an integral part of their marketing action. Among the nine marketing approaches used by American companies with annual sales greater than $50 million, exhibitions are now in third place, only 1,4 percentage points behind sales promotions with advertising ranking first.
"As South Africa's leading business-to-business security, protection and safety exhibition, Securex offers an ideal marketing platform to assist you in targeting a broad spectrum of influential local and international buyers and decision makers. Our track record speaks for itself," says Chamier.
The show provides an opportunity to:
* Market products.
* Offer personal selling to potential buyers.
* Build prospect databases.
* Build and maintain relationships with existing customers.
* Build brand awareness.
* Educate the market.
* Test the market.
* Launch new products.
* Obtain leads.
* Support existing sales channels.
* Reinforce a company's market position. According to the organisers, exhibitions are at the cutting edge of new business and professional concepts as value is derived from sharing technology, new products and developments in various sectors of the industry.
Bookings for Securex 2003, which takes place from 5-7 March 2003, are progressing well with 65% of the show already booked.
