Securex West Africa opens Visitor Registration
Securex West Africa, leading exhibition and conference for professionals working across the security, fire and safety supply chain, opens Visitor Registration. The exhibition will take place on the 17th and on the 18th March at the Landmark Centre in Lagos (Nigeria).
Encompassing commercial, cyber, homeland and perimeter security, fire and safety, the two-day event will welcome industry members from across the region to share insights, experience and innovation.
Following the enormous success of Securex West Africa 2019 which saw 2,324 attendees and 75 exhibitors from 19 different countries, organisers have revealed they expect Securex West Africa 2020 to be the largest edition to date.
Visitors to this year’s event will have access to two full days of cutting-edge technology demonstrations and live equipment on display from over 85 brands in addition to daily free-to-attend conferences hosted by some of the industry’s most influential members, and all completely free.
The daily conferences will not only look to uncover industry growth areas and explore new technology in the sector, but also to address potential security, fire & safety threats relevant to West Africa. The theme for the 2020 conference will be ‘Border Security as an imperative for National Security’, with esteemed speakers from the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Nigeria Customs Service.
Further to the Securex daily conferences, the West African Cyber Security Summit will take place alongside the exhibition. Returning for the fourth year now, WACSS is a one-day senior level cyber security conference aimed to keep industry members abreast of new developments and insights. The theme will be ‘Building sustainable defence through information security’.
Among the keynote speakers at WACSS will be the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, Mr Osioke Ojior, Chief Risk Officer from Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement Systems PLC, Mr Zechariah Akinpelu, Manager, Information Security Engineering from First Bank of Nigeria, and more to be announced.
The Outstanding Security Provider Awards (OSPAs) will once again be hosted alongside Securex, with a lunchtime ceremony on Tuesday 17th of March 2020 announcing winners across eight categories.
Mr George Pearson, Regional Director for Afrocet Montgomery, the organisers behind Securex West Africa, says: “We are extremely excited to launch the tenth edition of this exhibition, from its inception the show has gone from strength to strength. With the steady economic growth taking place across West Africa at the moment, we are beginning to see huge infrastructural investments, brand new mega building projects and more being made by the Nigerian Government. We, as organisers firmly believe this year will be unmissable for industry members, and as our tenth anniversary, you can expect a surprise or two to be announced in the coming weeks.”
And the organisers’ invitation is: “Register online now, for free!”
