Safety in Action Show heads to Darwin

Safety In Action is spreading its wings to the Northern Territory, with shows planned for Darwin every four years.

Organisers Informa Exhibitions Australia (formerly AEC) announced the move as part of a name change and major revamp of safety show schedules.

The rescheduling follows feedback from visitors and exhibitors.

And from next year, all safety shows across Australia will be re-branded.

Known formerly as the QLD Safety Show, the WA Safety Show and The Safety Show Sydney, they will now come under the Safety in Action umbrella.

The new two-day regional show in Darwin will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre, Darwin from March 19-20.

Tony Francis, Exhibition Director of Safety in Action Australia-wide, says the expansion of the trade show to Darwin was driven by an increase in demand for an event in the Northern Territory.

“The whole thing was driven by the industry there. We had companies based out in Darwin wanting to be a part of the trade shows, he says.

“Darwin is a booming economy and we’ve received support from the Northern Territory government and NT Worksafe to go ahead and launch a Safety in Action event in 2014. Already we’ve received so much interest from companies wanting to be a part of the show.”

Scheduling changes would allow visitors and exhibitors nationally to get the most out of the exhibition.

Visitors registered to attend Safety In Action in their city will have access to any co-located events happening alongside the show.

This year, visitors to the Queensland Safety Show also had access to the Advanced Logistics & Materials Handling and CleanScene shows.

This meant they could network with industry specialists and inspect the latest safety-related products and services.

Safety In Action is a highlight on the Australian Safety industry calendar.

It began in Melbourne and has since spread to QLD, NSW and WA under different names such as Queensland Safety Show and The Safety Show Sydney.

Under the new schedule, one major three-day show will run in September each year, alternating between Sydney and Melbourne.

This follows the successful model of the Queensland and WA shows, which feature 2-day shows in Perth and Brisbane held in June and April across alternating years.

The next Informa safety show will be held at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park, Sydney from September 3-5.
