The safety show proves a big draw
Monday, 29 December, 2003
The inaugural Safety Show, Sydney, held at the Sydney Showground during October, recorded 5600 visitors - far in excess of the 4000 visitors predicted by the event's organisers, Australian Exhibitions & Conferences.
"Safety is too important to simply tack on to a broader manufacturing or engineering show - you can't do it justice because matching that market awareness is a substantial sector of increasingly sophisticated suppliers," said Marie Kinsella, Managing Director of Australian Exhibitions & Conferences.
Kinsella said that The Safety Show, Sydney, 2004 would be held next year at the Sydney Showground from 13-15 October and was already 25% booked. The Safety Institute of Australia-NSW Division will present a two-day conference running alongside the Trade Show.
"The Show had grown by 83% and we anticipate at least 250 exhibitors and a substantial growth in visitation," she said.
Visitors at the first event represented a broad range of industry sectors, including corporate, government, transport, utilities, warehouse/distribution and mining.
WorkCover NSW says that the organisation was proud to be principal sponsor of the inaugural Safety Show, Sydney.
"Through the show, we were able to provide advice and publications to thousands of people who visited the WorkCover stand and hundreds of people who attended the organisation's Small Business Seminars," Rob Seljak, Assistant General Manager, WorkCover NSW, said.
