New venue for Securex

September 2002 News

Securex 2003, South Africa's international security, protection and safety exhibition, will be staged at the Sandton Convention Centre next year.

Reed Exhibitions' general manager, Lynn Chamier says Reed welcome the move to such a high profile centralised venue. In April this year, Reed Exhibitions South Africa, concluded a strategic alliance with Southern Sun Hotels and Sandton Convention Centre, whereby it was agreed that Sandton Convention Centre would become the exclusive venue for all Reed Exhibitions' Gauteng-based events commencing January 2003.

Chamier says one of the biggest drawcards of the venue for exhibitors is the centre's superb location in the business tourism hub of Gauteng. The link with Southern Sun is important as the exhibition industry is increasingly coming under pressure from exhibitors to provide a bigger draw of international guests, particularly from African countries. In the drive to attract these guests one of the caveats is the ability to provide quality accommodation in close proximity to the venue. As the preferred accommodation partner, exhibitors and visitors will now have access to preferential rates at nearby Southern Sun hotels.

For the local exhibitor and visitor the move to Sandton will provide access to free secure, underground parking. Chamier confirms that exhibitors will have underground parking on premise while visitors will have access to parking in Sandton City, which Reed has agreed to bulk purchase.

Meanwhile bookings for Securex, scheduled to take place from 5-7 March 2003, are progressing well. "We have already received support from a number of our traditional exhibitors as well as encouraging interest from potential international exhibitors. The security industry has become increasingly sophisticated and we believe the move to such a high tech fully airconditioned venue will now aptly showcase the high quality of exhibitors," concludes Chamier.
