As the key event in the security industry’s calendar, IFSEC International provides an important focal point for industry practitioners to gather and exchange best practice, and provides us with the valuable opportunity to network with new contacts, while revitalising existing relationships.
Here are the top 5 aspects of the show that we’re looking forward to this year:
• Surveillance Camera Commissioners Code of Practice: Ensuring Effective Regulation.
On Tuesday 17th June at 1pm, Simon Adcock of ATEC Security Ltd, Chairman of the BSIA CCTV Section, Pauline Norstrom of AD Holdings, Vice-Chair of the BSIA CCTV section and Alex Carmichael, Technical Director of the BSIA, will be joining newly-appointed Surveillance Camera Commissioner, Tony Porter, to debate the future of CCTV regulation in the UK.
• Export Council 20th Anniversary
On Tuesday 17th June at 3pm, we will be hosting a celebration to mark the 20th anniversary of the BSIA’s Export Council, a dedicated forum established in 1994 to provide a focal point for UK security companies looking to secure a foothold in overseas markets. We’re marking this milestone with a glass of bubbly and a slice of cake at the BSIA stand, where we’ll hear from a few notable figures from the world of security exporting. Join us to meet fellow exporters and overseas contacts at this informal gathering. You can sign up to attend the event at http://eepurl.com/TIsw9
