Decision taken to postpone Securex, A-OSH & Facilities Management Expo to June 2021
JOHANNESBURG – May 12, 2020 – Specialised Exhibitions, a division of the Montgomery Group, has taken decisive action with its portfolio of exhibitions following developments in the COVID-19 national state of disaster and various levels of lockdown.
In consultation with the Security, Occupational Health and Safety and Facilities Management industries and allowing for the negative effects of Covid19 on public health and the economy , the organisation is POSTPONING the Securex, A-OSH & FM Expos slated for August 2020 at Gallagher Convention Centre – to June 1 -3, 2021 at the same venue.
“Measures declared by the President on Sunday the 15th of March included a ‘ban on mass gatherings of more than 100 people’, as well as social distancing, & subsequently has enforced a complete lockdown of South Africa exempting only essential services” says Gary Corin, Managing Director of Specialised Exhibitions. “We fully support this pronouncement & measures taken by Government in instituting a country wide lockdown (currently Level 4). The safety and wellbeing of our exhibitors, suppliers and visitors – and indeed the industry as a whole – is of paramount importance, hence the decision to postpone this range of shows to 2021.
“Specialised Exhibitions looks forward to hosting a strong Post-Covid 19 event for the Security, Occupational Health and Safety and Facilities Management industries in 2021. We appreciate the input, engagement and support of all industry stakeholders.”
