Zug, Switzerland: With little more than one month to go, the speakers at the Euralarm Symposium 2017 have been announced. It will take place at the Kensington Close Hotel in London on May 8th, 2017. The event will gather fire and security professional installers, system integrators, manufacturers, end users, facility and property managers and certification bodies.
The first session of the Euralarm Symposium will focus on the new European services standard. This standard will ensure that all players across Europe answer to the same requirements and quality customer experience. During this session an overview will be given of the EN 16763 Services standard. Both end users' and installer's perspectives will be presented, together with plans on cross border certification.
Speakers during the first session are Mr. Lance Ruetimann, Senior Manager Industry Affairs, Siemens, Mr. John Battersby, Managing Director at Sunfish Services, and Mr. Alex Carmichael, Chief Executive at the Security Systems and Alarm Inspection Board.
The focal point of the second session will be the already existing Fire and Security digital market, bringing answers to the question of how companies can make the most out of it? During this session an overview will be given of remote Services in Fire and Security and the end users' perspective will be presented together with that of monitoring centres (MARC) and installers. Speakers during this session will be Dr. Rolf Sigg, CEO at Sigg Security Consulting, Mr. Bob Bantock, a Heritage Fire Safety Specialist at The National Trust, and Mr. Rob King, Head of Strategic Engagement at Kings Security.
