East Africa’s largest expo on security solutions is in the offing.
The expo, now slated for the 31st to the 2nd of February was initially scheduled for November 7-9th but was later changed due to Kenyan Presidential elections.
In a statement to the press, the exhibition’s Regional Director, Alexander Angus said “Elections always contain an element of uncertainty. We had originally hoped the election would not affect the exhibition at all, however, in light of the unprecedented decision to re-run it entirely 10 days prior, we have no choice but to postpone Securexpo East Africa 2017.” “After consulting with a number of partners and exhibitors, we feel that these events could impact the exhibition considerably. We have exhausted all options and have therefore taken the decision to move the event.” He said.
The expo will be held at the Visa Oshwal Centre in Nairobi, Kenya, one of Africa’s leading nations for emerging technology and a recognised gateway to some of East Africa’s smaller markets such as Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
One of the major factors driving the security industry for Kenya is the Government’s interest to significantly improve confidence in its security measures. This has uncovered a significant opportunity for growth for the security market to expand into developing regions like Kenya.
“Kenya is a country with a great deal of potential for development, especially for security. Securexpo brings together thought-leaders to share insights, network and to establish quality business leads. The show also provides an educational opportunity where interested individuals can get up-to-date market information such as regulatory changes, economic tendencies and trends.” Alexander Angus, Securexpo Exhibition Director.
With over 80 exhibiting companies and 3,000 visitors expected to attend, this January will see the largest exhibition of its kind in the East African region to date. Securexpo serves both the Government and private sectors for commercial security and is the most established trade show in the region for potential buyers, distributors and end-users.
The exhibition will also be comprised of a co-located, free-to-attend Conference where expert representatives from key institutions and businesses will lead compelling sessions across the three days. The programme for the Conference will be announced in December 2017.
