The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) is launching its 2020 celebration of the industry’s finest, namely the British Security Awards, by kick-starting the regional rounds of the security personnel categories. Taking place on Wednesday 1 July at the Marriott Hotel on London’s Grosvenor Square, the British Security Awards will celebrate the achievements made by security officers and teams across the UK’s private security industry, as well as acknowledging innovations in technology and business and the career contributions made by industry stalwarts.
The first phase of the British Security Awards will be to identify the regional winners and national finalists of the five security personnel categories: Best Newcomer, Best Team, Security Manager of the Year, Outstanding Act and Service to the Customer.
Nominations are now open for all five security personnel categories. Finalists of each category will go forward to the national stage on 1 July. The regional winners will also be recognised prior to the finals at events around the country.
The industry will be recognised in 16 categories in 2020 including: Innovative Security Project, National and International Partnership, Entrepreneur of the Year, Business of the Year, Apprentice of the Year, Contribution to the Industry and the Bravery Award. Entries for these categories will open on 31 January 2020.
Mike Reddington, CEO at the BSIA, said: “The British Security Awards is the national event to recognise the talent and commitment of our industry’s finest. The scale of achievement from across each sector is quite remarkable and highlights acts of untold bravery, ingenuity in the application of new technology and the successful delivery of projects by forward-thinking self-starters.”
Reddington added: “We’re looking forward to recognising and rewarding exemplar professionals in the industry for their dedication to their chosen profession. We’re looking forward to welcoming stakeholders and colleagues from across the industry to share in this celebration of excellence.”
