BSIA to move British Security Awards to an online broadcast for 2020
The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) is moving its British Security Awards event to an online broadcast for 2020.
Due to the uncertainly of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, the Association’s British Security Awards flagship event, which was due to take place on 1 July in London, will now take place as an online Broadcast event for this year only, and will be going live to over 12,000 active participants from across the industry.
The live event will feature the announcement of the winners of 15 categories, covering security personnel and business achievements, with each winner being announced by the award sponsor. The awards will also feature special guest, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick who will be presenting awards in the bravery category.
Winners will be sent their trophies after the event and finalists will also receive a medal of recognition.
Mike Reddington, Chief Executive, BSIA, said: “The British Security Awards is a major event in the industry calendar and due to the unforeseen circumstances of the last three months, we will now be hosting this event online.
The British Security Awards Online 2020 promises to be a fantastic showcase of talent and expertise from the industry, and we are honoured that the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick will also be taking part in the proceedings.
Despite the most challenging issue of our lifetime, our members have still managed to present us with a large number of award nominees, and it is only right that we continue to honour both their commitment and the achievements of their employees in the most fitting way we can.”
Sponsoring the Awards are: Texecom (Installer of the Year), Optex (Best Use of Technology), Innovise (Business of the Year), NSI (Apprentice of the Year), Camberford Underwriting (Security Personnel), SaferCash (Industry Bravery)
