NSI announces 2019 Summit in partnership with IFSEC International organiser UBM

The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) has announced that the NSI Summit 2019 will be held on Thursday 21 March at The Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham. The event will be supported by IFSEC International’s organiser UBM.

The NSI Summit creates a mutually beneficial business forum in which approved companies and key industry stakeholders can gather to access informative and tailored education sessions with direct relevance for their organisations, connect with like-minded security professionals and meet face-to-face with a range of exhibitors, all of whom are critical to delivering service excellence.

The Summit brings together a vibrant exhibitor community and an industry-leading speaker programme. The latter is designed to emphasise that the key to successful outcomes in security and fire safety lies in strong partnerships between stakeholders, security and fire service providers and their customers in the private and public sector.

NSI-approved companies form an integral part of the national security infrastructure protecting business owners, organisations and, indeed, the community at large.

UBM’s commitment to the security sector 

As a Summit partner since the event’s inception four years ago, UBM’s increased commitment to the sector is reinforced in taking on the full logistics and organisation of this defining event in the industry calendar, truly leveraging its expertise for the benefit of all participants, delegates, speakers and exhibitors alike.

Richard Jenkins, CEO at the NSI, commented: “This one-day NSI Summit is an intense, value-packed and must-attend event bringing together the UK’s elite security and fire safety professionals. It’s a valuable, convenient and highly enjoyable opportunity for approved companies to keep up-to-date with the latest thinking and innovation in their marketplace.”

Jenkins went on to state: “We’re looking forward to delivering an enriched experience for all delegates and exhibitors whatever their areas of expertise and interest and, with UBM’s support and industry insight, I’m confident that the 2019 Summit at The Vox Conference Centre will be the best ever.”

UBM’s Gerry Dunphy, event director responsible for IFSEC International, observed: “As an organisation, the NSI is in a unique position thanks to its long-standing relationship with the installer community. The organisation has the ability to provide this exclusive annual opportunity for buyers and suppliers. The Summit is the perfect event for a qualified audience of approved companies and their customers to join forces for a relaxed and purposeful day of education and discovery. It’s a great example of where the NSI family congregates to provide a rich and rewarding opportunity for participating delegates and exhibitors.”

The Vox Conference Centre is located next door to the NEC with excellent transport links for maximum convenience.
