February 2003 News

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.

These critical components of effective business management have earned Securex the reputation for being the only comprehensive exhibition of its kind for South Africa's security, safety and protection industry.

Quality exhibitors will come together under one roof to showcase the necessary tools to ensure the safety and security of a business. Securex is also the perfect place to source the best quality products and prices, meet new and existing suppliers, keep abreast of new developments and make new contacts. The show clearly offers an opportunity to foster new relationships and adopt innovative ideas. Securex is a must for visitors in the following industry sectors:

* Training.

* Utility services.

* Warehousing/distribution/transport.

Other highlights at the show include the ESDA Village where smaller ESDA members will be showcasing their expertise as well as 12 workshops organised by The Security Association of South Africa (SASA). Topics that will be covered in the workshops include:

* Corporate Governance.

* How compliance with the OHS Act can increase productivity and enhance profits.

* Statement analysis - a most powerful and significant tool.

* Firearms legislation - an update.

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.
