SSAIB Embrace Technology Once More to Exhibit at Security TWENTY's Virtual Event

Having seen our events schedule for 2020 decimated due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, SSAIB are back on the exhibition trail once again thanks to an innovative digital event organised by the team behind Professional Security Magazine.

The Security TWENTY20 Virtual Event – which is live now – perfectly encapsulates the travelling roadshows that Roy Cooper and his team usually take to all corners of the UK and Ireland. From the latest industry updates to top security industry speakers, the Security TWENTY20 events are aimed at end users, purchasers and those who specify security products.

Once lockdown had seen both ST20 Glasgow and ST20 Manchester re-arranged for the winter of 2020/21, the show’s organisers got in touch with PR & Communications Executive Glen Maxwell to discuss the leading UKAS-accredited certification body for the fire and security industries’ participation in this pioneering virtual event.

Glen commented: “Exhibitions and conferences, such as the Security TWENTY events, are usually a massive part of the make up of our sales and marketing portfolio every year – as we visit all areas of the UK and Ireland to catch up with our registered firms, discuss certification opportunities with potential new customers and all of the other added networking benefits that come from events like this that allow us to meet face-to-face with people.

“Obviously, due to the lockdown, it’s been nearly five months since we were last able to attend any sort of event in person. That’s why, when Liz [Lloyd, event manager] rang me and explained the concept to me, I was eager for SSAIB to get involved.

“We’ve massively embraced technology at SSAIB since the announcement of lockdown, with our audits and our working practices switching over to remote working and being a tremendous success - as it has allowed us to continue to provide certification and support to our registered firms through what has been a very testing time for everyone.

"Therefore, it made perfect sense for our attendance of events to follow suit as well and it’s great that the Professional Security team have developed this concept into an immersive online event experience.”

In addition to being able to visit SSAIB’s stand for the event, field operations manager David Roscoe is also one of the key speakers in the video theatre for the event – as he gives a standards update for the industry, in which he considers some of the upcoming changes that may be incorporated into any new standards expected in the near future.
