The exhibition has grown in stature and renown in the intervening years and is today the largest security and fire trade show of its kind on the continent.

We will be taking an in-depth look into today’s Public Relations (PR) campaigns ranging from media, to politics, to launching new products; and how we are able to gain public trust in an otherwise distrustful world.This Symposium will beg the question, what sort of digital mediums are taking precedence in communications and how can we incorporate them for maximum effect? Culture is changing, generations are changing, and attitudes are changing. So, how do we cater to such diversity in communications when the communications field is rapidly evolving not just in technology but, also in psychology with an ever-more aware public? We will explore these different facets over the course of two days to intrigue and inspire those working in different fields of communications through idea sharing, networking, and innovation.
