Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery augments offering with acquisition of facilities management expo
JOHANNESBURG – October 31, 2018 – Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, the largest trade show organiser in southern Africa, has expanded its portfolio of world-class exhibitions with the acquisition of the Facilities Management (FM) Expo from TE Trade Events.
The FM Expo, which showcases products and services associated with property and building management and maintenance, will be co-located with Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery’s well-established Securex South Africa and A-OSH EXPO trade shows, from 14 to 16 May 2019 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
According to Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery managing director, Gary Corin, there are a number of synergies between the FM Expo and the organisation’s existing portfolio of trade shows.
“The FM Expo is an excellent fit with Securex, Africa’s leading security and fire trade exhibition, and A-OSH EXPO, the continent’s foremost occupational health and safety (OHS) show, as the three co-located events will provide visitors with a consolidated view of the entire supply chain – within one venue over a full three-day period.”
“The addition of a new show, but one that has a seven-year track record within the facilities management space, will also provide exhibiting companies with even greater traction through exposure to wider, and possibly new, audiences,” he adds.
With the purchase of FM Expo, Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery has also taken ownership of the associated Facilities Management (FM) print publication. The bi-monthly title targets owners and operators of properties and facilities, as well as facilities management solution and services providers and consultants, including mechanical and electrical engineers; architects and interior designers; heating, ventilation and air-conditioning; plumbing and sewerage; electrical, security and access control; and catering, cleaning and landscaping service providers.
Sven Smit, portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, explains that, as with Securex and A-OSH EXPO, the new FM Expo will include tailored content within its own free-to-attend seminar theatre, featuring topics covering the latest trends, initiatives and challenges the industry is currently facing.
“With the addition of FM Expo as the third co-located show, visitors will have free-of-charge access to four different, focused seminar theatres across the three halls.”
