As an avid security enthusiast, chances are you’ll want to know what new technology is on offer in this arena, what innovations are making waves and which people are exerting influence. Fear not, weary traveller, for the information you seek is contained within these very pages!
CENTURION is fortunate enough to have participated in a number of these prestigious events in the past – and will certainly continue to do so in the future – and we hereby submit for your reading pleasure a small sample of what you can look forward to in the year ahead.
This relatively new entrant to the world of security conventions was held for the first time in Harare, Zimbabwe in March of 2012. SecurExpo, which saw a very successful launch at the Royal Harare Golf Club last year, draws participants from all sectors of the economy and focuses on all facets of security including cybercrime, cable theft prevention, computer forensics, etc. If SecurExpo 2012 was anything to go by, this event is sure to become Zimbabwe’s premier showcase for integrated security solutions.
Venue: Harare, Zimbabwe. For more information contact Conrad Chibanda, [email protected]
The official Secutech website bills the event as “The business platform for global security manufacturers to demonstrate corporate values”. Sounds good to me!
Venue: Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center in Taiwan
With Africa holding the world’s largest producer of platinum and one the largest producers of gold, it is only natural that integrated security solutions would be such an important factor when it comes to the safeguarding of our valuable subterranean resources. Of course, access control is also important from a safety perspective as it is imperative that the identities of all employees engaged underground at any given time are known and easily accessible. And so, the Mine Site Security Conference was born.
Dates: 28 to 29 January 2013
As far as security expos go, this is the biggie. This writer, for one, cannot help but succumb to almost juvenile excitement when thinking about the row upon row of hi-tech gear. Last year saw the event play host to almost 6000 visitors and some 200 exhibitors – will these numbers be exceeded at IFSEC 2013?
According to IFSEC SA’s website “IFSEC South Africa is the leading Commercial Security, Homeland Security and Fire exhibition on the African continent”.
Venue: Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand
