Defence and Security Strategy

Fire and security business representatives are being urged to attend the Fire & Security Association’s 10th birthday celebrations next month during the IFSEC and FIREX International conference.

The industry-leading FSA will be hosting a free drinks reception on its stand (C230, within the FIREX area) on Wednesday 21 June from 5-7pm. There are speeches planned from FSA Chairman Pat Allen and Head of the FSA Steve Martin about the trade body’s achievements since its formation in 2007.

In addition, Steve Martin will be giving a presentation on ‘Connected buildings – disconnected people?’ on Thursday 22 June at 2pm. The seminar will focus on the commercial and social opportunities associated with smart technology.

Head of the FSA Steve Martin said: “IFSEC and FIREX International is undoubtedly one of the biggest occasions on the fire and security calendar. The FSA is delighted to be celebrating our 10th birthday at this year’s show and we look forward to welcoming attendees to the FSA stand to recognise our achievements.

“In addition, the FSA seminar on the commercial opportunities associated with smart technology should provide engineers and installers with some new ideas on how to grow and diversify your business.”

IFSEC – which is aimed at security professionals from across the supply chain – and its sister event FIREX International, devoted to the fire industry, are being held from Tuesday 20 to Thursday 22 June at ExCeL London.

Some of the keynote speakers during the three-day event include: rock star physicist Professor Brian Cox OBE, Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes, and Falklands War hero Simon Weston OBE.
