Nigeria is the perfect place to host the ISFEC West Africa in 2012, being a country rich in economic potential and the new face of an emerging African continent, according to Ross Cullingworth, director of sales and marketing of Montgomery Africa. With a security market valued at US$3.5 billion and a GDP which has increased year-on-year, businesses can no longer afford to overlook West Africa as a prime security market.
As such, IFSEC West Africa is strategically positioned to address the developmental needs of this emerging and economically viable region.
IFSEC West Africa 2012 will be held from 6-7 March 2012 in Lagos, the very nerve centre of the fast-growing West Africa region. Once again it is poised to become the definitive event for this emerging security market; it will cover aspects of the commercial and government security, as well as the fire and safety market. The 2012 itinerary includes the free-to-attend IFSEC West Africa Conference, hosted alongside the exhibition. High-level speakers will deliver keen insight into the security market to an audience of senior management and decision makers from some of Africa and the world's top companies.
Variety of security issues will be addressed
Speaker themes at the conference will include strategic crime prevention and policing in the region, including private security partnerships with law enforcement. The conference will also look at the critical importance of protecting the region's national oil and gas pipeline. Furthermore, it will look at how the industry can integrate technological advancements with physical security components. Speakers will also look at strategies to improve aviation security, especially in regard to counter-terrorism measures across West Africa. Most importantly, it will also look at the future of private security in this rapidly-developing region.
The benefit of attending IFSEC West Africa 2011, Cullingworth adds, is that it will give a clear view of the Nigerian and West African security markets. "It will not only show you the current security landscape but will give you insight into the future - what the needs and requirements will be going forward. This will give security brands an opportunity to tailor their security products and installations, maintenance and training offerings," he says.
Exhibitors at the event include a wide range of various security providers that specialise in electronic security, CCTV, Access Control, physical security, vehicle and personnel tracking devices, armoured vehicles, scanners and guarding services.
