Safety still a priority in economic downturn

The 10,276 visits to The Safety Show Sydney this year proved safety remains a priority for business in the face of global economic turmoil.

NSW’s largest workplace safety event, The Safety Show Sydney and Sydney Materials Handling trade shows, hosted more than 350 occupational health, safety and materials handling specialists across three and a half acres at the Sydney Showground, Homebush.

Organiser, Marie Kinsella of Australian Exhibitions and Conferences, said visitors were increasingly keen to participate in demonstrations of safety products and services. 

“People want to know how products feel, move and work as well as assessing potential suppliers,” Ms Kinsella said.

“Exhibitors who answer that need with great stands, engaging personalities an interactive demos are guaranteed to do well.”

The Safety Show Sydney and Sydney Materials Handling will return to Sydney Olympic Park from October 27 to October 29 in 2009.

Meanwhile, Victoria will host Safety In Action and Melbourne Materials Handling at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from March 31 to April 2, next year.
