National Security Inspectorate highlights new feature areas for 2019 Summit

The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) has announced brand new feature areas for the forthcoming 2019 NSI Summit on Thursday 21 March at The Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham. The exhibition area will be enhanced with an Exhibitor Presentation Zone and an Apprenticeship Hub. 

The Exhibitor Presentation Zone will be a series of quick fire product or service demonstrations in an in-hall seminar area. This will be an opportunity for delegates to hear about new products and services in a presentation setting.

The Apprenticeship Hub – which is sponsored by CSL, Pyronix and Texecom – will feature further education colleges from across the UK that offer security and fire safety apprenticeships. Delegates will be able to discuss their own requirements with dedicated course representatives and learn more about the mechanics of how the apprenticeship scheme works.

Richard Jenkins, CEO at the NSI, commented: “This latest announcement is another step towards making this year’s NSI Summit the most enriching yet for delegates, exhibitors and sponsors. Our curated expert seminar programme includes a session on Best Practice working between a college and security systems installer. We hope this is an enlightening session for any approved company contemplating different approaches to managing skills gaps within their organisation.”

Jenkins concluded: “With dedicated content streams on fire safety, guarding/security services and electronic security, we look forward to welcoming all delegates and exhibitors whatever their areas of expertise and interest.”
