Faced with industry innovation and evolving technologies, security professionals are being urged to to attend the 2015 Security Exhibition & Conference, Australasia’s premier security industry event.
With just 10 days to go until the event, which returns to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from July 15 to July 17, Security 2015 Event Manager, Alanna Phillips, encouraged anyone looking for an edge in the industry to register now or risk falling behind on the latest business security solutions.
“The Security Exhibition presents a yearly opportunity to connect with the best in the industry while discovering and experiencing the latest products and innovations to hit the Australian marketplace relevant to access control, surveillance, fire and safety, biometrics and IP networking,” Ms Phillips said.
Now in its 30th year – a testament to the event’s unmatched success – Ms Phillips said, the 2015 event was expected to be the biggest yet.
“With more than 4,500 attendees set to connect with 140 leading suppliers in the security industry, including industry heavyweights Interlogix, Chubb, Central Security Distribution, Hills and Honeywell, the Security Exhibition should be a fixture on every security professional’s calendar,” Ms Phillips said.
Learn from the best at a choice of two educational programs
As well as featuring leading suppliers, the 2015 event gives attendees the chance to hear from industry experts through two seminar programs – a conference program hosted by the Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL), and the free educational Security Seminar Series.
The ASIAL Conference Program, which is a two-day conference for security end-users, features a world-class line-up of experts including Bryce Blythe, Chair of Crisis Management International in the US, and Dave Komendat, Vice President and Chief Security Officer of the Boeing Company.
The free Security Seminar Series, which is designed specifically for security installers and integrators, will provide practical advice and education based on current key industry trends.
Discover award-winning innovations
The three-day event will also look at the future challenges and opportunities for the industry, and feature the best new products to tackle these challenges – some of which are in contention for the Best New Product Awards at the Security Cocktail Reception on 16 July. These products include:
· The Pyronix CLOUD app by Alarm IP Australia, which enables users to control their home security from anywhere in the world using their smart phone
· The Protrac ID by TourTrac, a real-time reporting and recording device to track tour rotations of security guards, cleaners and maintenance personnel
· The Gallagher mobile app by Gallagher Security, which means a site can have a greater physical security presence for no additional labour cost by enabling security guards to remotely monitor the site
· The JustIN Mobile Key Technology by Salto Systems, which allows users to use their smartphone as a key to unlock doors and access areas
· The Solar Cam by Spectur, which is a solar-powered, high-definition security camera system, providing a security solution for remote sites with no power or internet access such as construction sites and mine sites.
These products and more will be on display over the course of the event.
World renowned security expert, Jason Brown National Security Director of Thales Australia & New Zealand, reiterated the importance of the event to the Australian security industry:
“For 30 years now the Security Exhibition and Conference has delivered an event for our industry that is not to be missed,” Mr Brown said.
“It’s paramount we seize opportunities like this to connect with fellow industry members to keep abreast of the latest happenings and future plans.
“This is especially important in this complex modern environment, where security practices and technologies are evolving at such a rapid rate.”
At the 2015 ASIAL Conference Mr Brown, in his additional role as Australia’s Head of Delegation on Security and Resilience to the International Standards Organisation, will address the current national and international standards for security, business continuity and crisis management, and outline future directions.
