Securex - the country's premier trade security show taking place from 5-7 March 2003 at its new home, Sandton Convention Centre - will once again focus on security, fire protection and safety.

According to Lynn Chamier, general manager of Securex, it was a strategic move to take Securex to Sandton Convention Centre, which is ideally situated, in the economic heart of Gauteng. "No one understands the importance of good location better than Reed Exhibitions. It was our primary motivator earlier this year when we concluded a strategic alliance with Southern Sun Hotels and Sandton Convention Centre." A recent study conducted by the Exhibition Association of Southern Africa (EXSA) also confirmed that location is an important deciding factor for organisers.

Visitors to Securex 2003 also need not worry about parking. With the move to Sandton Convention Centre free visitor parking has been allocated in the Sandton City shopping complex near the Convention Centre.

For visitors' convenience, on-line registration facilities are also available on the Securex website at www.securex.co.za. By pre-registering a bar code which will be provided and can be handed to a receptionist at the entrance of the exhibition hall upon arrival, thereby eliminating long queues.
