The world-class security, safety, fire and protection exhibition IFSEC South Africa, is set to relaunch under the well-known and highly respected Securex brand for its show in 2015.

Damion Angus, managing director of Montgomery, said: “It’s been gratifying to see IFSEC South Africa and OSH Expo Africa build reputations as world-class events that cater specifically to the South African and sub-Saharan African markets.” He adds: “We are encouraged by the success to date of both shows and we believe that they will remain the most important shows in their respective sectors in the African market going forward, under their new brand names.”

Gary Corin, managing director of Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery said that now is the time for an exciting new chapter for South Africa’s leading security and safety event under the recognised and respected Securex brand name. “It was also an opportunity to reposition OSH Expo Africa under a new name, to include a growing focus on environmental issues affecting safety and health professionals, and to grow the brand in Africa. With the African security market poised for further growth, we believe there is a unique opportunity to further expand both shows.”

Securex will be the largest and most comprehensive show of its kind in Africa and the only show exclusively dedicated to the very latest developments in security, safety, fire and protection. It is aimed at all those in the trade who consider issues of business and personal security, protection and safety to be of paramount importance.

OSH Expo Africa will be rebranded as A-OSH (African Occupational Safety and Health) Expo, and will run concurrently with Securex. This popular expo is aimed at the African occupational health, safety and environmental markets and offers professionals and business operators from across a broad range of industries the opportunity to source new products, hear keynote seminars and take part in exclusive networking events tailored for the African market.

Securex and A-OSH Expo will run from 12-14 May 2015, at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg.
