IFSEC SA is here

June 2012 Conferences & Events

While the security market is continually putting choices in front of customers, technology or humans, IP or analogue, in-house or remote, once a year it is time for the industry to put its money where its mouth is and prove it can deliver. IFSEC SA 2012 will be held at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand from 19 to 21 June 2012.

IFSEC is a chance for end users to meet their security providers face-to-face, while the channel can see what else is on offer in their areas of expertise. In other words, it is a smorgasbord of security options where visitors get to see the full spectrum of technologies and solutions applicable to their needs under one roof.

And if you look at the various companies and technologies in this year’s Hi-Tech Security Solutions’ IFSEC SA Preview, you can see there will be no shortage of choices at this year’s show. From the smallest to the largest companies, competition is the order of the day and the event is a must-attend for buyers – not to mention those who need to make educated decisions on security solutions.

After its launch at last year’s event, IFSEC SA will once again be adding the Interactive Theatre at the SAIS (South African Institute of Security) Pavilion, to its list of educational events. The three-day educational programme includes speakers from a wide range of the security industry, both local and international, all aimed at engaging delegates in sessions of information sharing and debate.

Additionally, supporting the security show, the Facilities Show Africa Zone will reflect the importance of the facilities management portfolio, featuring the latest products, services and technology. This zone will spotlight the latest in green facilities management, estate management, waste management, energy, signage, refurbishment, air-conditioning, ergonomics, heating, IT, office supplies and storage.

A new feature at this year’s event is Homeland Security and Safety Africa, which will be a dedicated exhibition zone aimed at delegates representing various government departments in Africa. This component of the show will include a conference with international speakers, including Tarique Ghaffur, former deputy commissioner in London’s Metropolitan Police, special agent Willie Rattingher (FBI), international sniffer dogs and drug detection expert, John Greyvenstein and piracy expert, Annelie Botha.

And of course, OSH EXPO Africa 2012 will provide occupational safety and health professionals with all the latest industry news, trends and the opportunity to view and source the most innovative products and services available locally and abroad. Just one year after launching, the event has attracted a number of international exhibitors, including: Ansell, DuPont, Brady, Jesbra Group, and Honeywell Gas Detection and more.

Recently UBM Montgomery Africa and McNaughton and Associates joined forces to hold the NOSHEBO (National Occupational Safety, Health & Environment Board) conference and exhibition concurrently with the OSH EXPO at the same venue. With industry experts and top speakers, the 2012 NOSHEBO Conference will cover the opportunities, challenges and advances in the occupational safety and health market in South Africa. The two-day conference covers a host of topics across the sector including the latest legal implications for the industry.

Montgomery has also clinched a partnership with SpiderWebb, a manufacturer of equipment for the prevention of falls. The SpiderWebb Working at Height Theatre and demonstration zone will offer visitors a daily free-to-attend seminar, which will run from 11:00 to 15:00 daily at OSH EXPO.

The following pages preview a few of the products you will see at the show. And when you have had enough walking around, stop at the Hi-Tech Security Solutions stand, we have coffee.
