IFSEC SA starts on 6 September this year and it looks like it is going to be the biggest show ever. Not only will we see the traditional security component, but also an occupational health and safety, as well as a fire component to conform to the international events.
Last month we published a review of the UK event, which was a great place to be to understand what is happening in the security world globally. The local event will provide insight into our local and African market.
To give you a taste of what is in store for you, Hi-Tech Security Solutions asked a few of the exhibitors to tell us what they will be doing at Gallagher Conference Centre. Below, in no particular order, is a very brief summary of what to expect from only a few of the exhibitors. Keep reading to see a brief listing of the products to look out for at this year’s IFSEC.
