Save the date for A-OSH EXPO 2024 — Africa’s largest health & safety expo
With a record number of 4 005 industry professionals attending A-OSH EXPO 2023, and a record combined 11 465 visitors to the four co-located shows — Securex South Africa, Facilities Management Expo, and Firexpo — the stage is set for a highly successful A-OSH EXPO 2024. Being held at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, from 28 to 30 May 2024, A-OSH EXPO will benefit from an additional exhibition hall to cater to the demand for more floor space.
“A-OSH EXPO continues to make headway as Africa’s largest and most comprehensive occupational safety and health expo. The feedback we receive from exhibitors and visitors is that it is the ultimate interactive platform, where important and enduring connections are made, positive networking is enabled, and product and service solutions are found,” says Mark Anderson, Portfolio Director at Specialised Exhibitions — a division of Montgomery Group.
“It’s important for us to establish our name in the market. We want people to have the name ‘Pinnacle Welding & Safety’ foremost in their minds when they think of PPE. A-OSH EXPO and the three co-located expos allow us to do this.” Kenny Bing — Pinnacle Welding and Safety.
“We have a very niche offering with our chemical exposure treatment product, and A-OSH EXPO provided us with a lot of new potential customer leads. This was our first time exhibiting at the expo and we believe that it is an extremely cost-effective way of reaching a large potential customer base over a concentrated period of time.” Gary Dollman — Prismia Chemical Safety.
Bringing the industry to the expo
“We have found that visitors generally come to A-OSH EXPO with a dual purpose in mind. Firstly, they come to network with peers and at the same time view, source and select products and services pertinent to their organisation’s needs (89.2%). A further 10.2% come to hear industry experts and thought leaders discuss the latest trends, challenges, and legislation in the industry. We maintain a subtle balance between these two distinct needs by presenting cutting-edge solutions from our exhibitors, and by offering learning opportunities with our two free-to-attend A-OSH EXPO seminar theatres,” says Anderson.
The free-to-attend Saiosh Seminar Theatre and the Working at Height and Safety Seminar Theatre are both populated with topics that cover the full spectrum of OSH issues, including PPE, training, statutory requirements, working at height safety, first aid, employee wellbeing, and management and analytical tools.
A-OSH EXPO exhibitors gain from an ongoing intensive marketing campaign that begins months before the expo, ramps up as the opening date approaches, and continues after the expo. A large database, gathered over years and complemented by data extrapolated from other successful Specialised Exhibitions expos, like Electra Mining Africa, ensures they stay top of mind with past and potential visitors.
“A-OSH EXPO on its own has gained a reputation as being the preferred launchpad for all things OSH. Adding strength to this achievement, is the additional footfall that derives from co-locating the expo with the 31-year-old Securex South Africa, and the rapidly-growing Facilities Management Expo and Firexpo. There is a great deal of synergy between these four expos, and we find that many visitors who came to visit one specific show, ended up buying products and/or services from one or more of the other shows,” says Anderson.
