IFSEC South Africa Securex 2010 is eventually here and it's all guns blazing for the 31st August launch.

Following a successful event in 2009, South Africa’s premier security exhibition, incorporating the broadest range of security companies, products and services in Africa under one roof, IFSEC South Africa Securex 2010 will once again be shaping the industry from 31 August 2010 to 2 September 2010 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
This year’s show promises to be even better with the event attracting attention from South Africa, our northern neighbours and even the Far East. In addition, visitors to the show can streamline their entry to the event

The IFSEC SA Securex 2010 Business Matchmaking Programme is a new, proactive pre show platform enabling conference delegates, exhibitors, pre-registered visitors and sponsors to view profiles of participants and select who they want to meet at the event. As soon as you are confirmed to attend the event, the IFSEC SA Securex 2010 Business Matchmaking Team will profile your company and provide access to the online matchmaking programme.
The Business Matchmaking Team works four to six weeks in advance of the event, pre-profiling all confirmed participants creating individual matching reports, encouraging meeting selections and pushing meeting requests into confirmed interactions that take place at the event.
This programme enables you to be proactive before arriving at the event maximising the networking experience. By searching through event profiles, you can select exactly who you want to meet, send a meeting request and confirm all the meetings that will take place at convenient times for the meeting invitee. Online diaries allow you to track your meeting requests in a real-time environment providing up-to-date information through your private online matchmaking account.
All meetings take place in the IFSEC SA Securex 2010 Business Matchmaking lounge, at meeting tables or on relevant exhibitors stands.
