SSAIB Celebrate Another Successful Installers Forum at BT Tower

SSAIB are once again celebrating a successful Installers Forum event – after our registered firms continued their fantastic support for annual meeting in the capital.

Demand was high for the BT Redcare-sponsored event – as the prestigious guest list was filled in just a few hours after registration opened, meaning that the auditorium at the prestigious BT Tower in London was packed out for the company’s 2019 showpiece occasion.

Those in attendance heard from SSAIB chief executive Alex Carmichael, who discussed the progress that had been made in the last 12 months – as well as looking back over the course of SSAIB’s 25 years, in celebration of our silver anniversary.

There was also an interesting panel session on IP transformation and its effect on the industry, where Alex was joined by BT Group’s senior product manager Phil Cain, BT Redcare general manager John Ware and a representative from the IASME Consortium. The latter followed up with an overview on Cyber Essentials and how it can help secure registered firms and their businesses, before BT Redcare’s account director Baz Choudhury informed the audience of the event host’s latest developments.

Lunch then took place upstairs in the revolving restaurant, which stands at 189 metres high – allowing our guests to enjoy unparalleled views of London as they ate.

SSAIB sales and marketing manager Andrew Brown was delighted with the event and the support it had received from SSAIB firms.

Andrew commented: “It’s great to have held yet another successful Installers Forum at the BT Tower. The success of these events really does depend on our firms and the turnout for this year’s event was fantastic to see.

“I’d like to thank every single person that attended, all of our speakers and our brilliant hosts at BT Redcare. The BT Tower isn’t open to the public, so it’s great to be able to give our guests an almost exclusive visit to the revolving restaurant that has some magnificent views of London.

“We always try to give firms help and advice whenever we visit them, be it here or during our regional meetings throughout the year. So, we hope we’ve given them something to think about with regards to apprenticeships and cyber security – as they’re aspects of business that sometimes get overlooked.

“If we can continue to help and support our firms, then these events are more than worth it.”
