SSAIB to Exhibit at FIM Expo 2019 in Sheffield

SSAIB to Exhibit at FIM Expo 2019 in Sheffield

SSAIB are delighted to confirm our attendance at this year’s Fire Industry Manufacturers’ (FIM) Expo, which is taking place on Wednesday October 16, 2019 at Bramall Lane; the home of Sheffield United FC.

SSAIB will be attending the event – which is open from 8:30am to 2:30pm and is free to attend - alongside BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment), so any registered firms for our fire schemes – or any firms looking to join SSAIB for these certification schemes - will be able to discuss any queries that they have with our team at the event and get the answers to any questions they have there and then.

Organised by the Fire Industry Association (FIA), FIM Expo features many of the UK's leading fire detection and alarm manufacturers and focuses on showcasing the latest products and developments in this sector of the industry. With an average of 25 exhibitors over the last few years, FIM Expo has also grown to become the best local expo for the fire industry.

With a wide range of exhibitors confirmed so far, FIM Expo is for anyone working in this area - whether as an installer or maintainer of fire detection and alarm systems, a manager of such systems in commercial premises or as an architect or person specifying what type of fire protection systems should be installed in a building.

The FIA will also be hosting two free CPD-accredited seminars at the Expo. The subjects for both sessions are yet to be confirmed, but they will focus on key topics affecting the FD&A world.

The Fire Industry Association will also have a stand, so that those interested can meet the Membership Manager and enquire about the benefits of FIA membership (which includes discounts on fire protection training and qualifications, and the possibility of a stand at future FIM Expos.)

Finalists Announced for SSAIB-Hosted Women in Security Awards

Finalists Announced for SSAIB-Hosted Women in Security Awards

The shortlist has been announced for this year’s Women in Security Awards, which SSAIB are proud to be hosting in London next month alongside our own SSAIB 25 celebrations.

The sold-out black tie event, which is being held aboard the Dixie Queen riverboat on the River Thames on Thursday September 12, will see five Women in Security Awards presentations taking place for the first time ever – after WiS organisers Professional Security added a new Contribution to Industry category to the list of awards that recognises the achievements of females working in the security sector.

With nominations having closed just one week ago, the awards team have wasted no time in announcing the three finalists for each category; Security Manager, Frontline, Business Manager, Technical and Contribution to Industry.

SSAIB Forced to Cancel Belfast Regional Meeting

SSAIB Forced to Cancel Belfast Regional Meeting

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, SSAIB has had no option but to cancel the planned regional meeting in Belfast next month.

The scheduled meeting was due to take place on Wednesday September 4 at the Crowne Plaza in Belfast, but we have now been made aware that this meeting is unable to go ahead at this time.

SSAIB will still be making the trip to the Northern Irish capital 24 hours earlier though, with the leading certification body for the security and fire industries being in attendance at Security TWENTY 19 Belfast at the Europa Hotel on Tuesday September 3. This is then quickly followed by a quick jump over the border for Security TWENTY 19 Dublin two days later (Thursday September 5.)

We would welcome any of our registered firms that had previously registered for our Belfast meeting to visit us at either of the Belfast or Dublin shows that week, where our team will be happy to discuss any enquiries or feedback you may have.

SSAIB can only apologise for any inconvenience that this cancellation has caused.
