With a record-breaking 2,344 attendees and at 696 Square metres of floor space, the previous edition of Securex West Africa was the largest to date. Attendees increased by 24 percent from the previous year and that trend is expected to continue into 2019. Positioning itself as a truly international event, the exhibition attracted visitors from 17 different countries, the top five of which included Nigeria, Benin, Cameroon, Senegal, South Africa and Togo.
Following the enormously successful event in 2018, this April will see the eighth edition of West Africa’s largest security, fire and safety exhibition. With an already substantially full floor plan, the Regional Director for Afrocet Montgomery, George Pearson had this to say: “With the Nigerian Elections just around the corner, we are confident that this year’s show is well-positioned to bolster the market requirement by providing a much-needed industry overview with new products and technologies on display from leading brands, both Nigerian and International.”
Brands already confirmed to showcase their products and services include Assa Abbloy, Centurion Systems, Hytera Communications, Kontz Engineering, Mobiak S.A., Optex Europe Ltd, Turnstar Systems and many more. You can view the full list of exhibitors and their products on the show’s website.
