Registration now open for 2018 NSI Summit at Birmingham’s Vox Conference Centre

The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) has announced that the 2018 NSI Summit will take place on Thursday 22 March at the Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham. NSI approved companies are now invited to book their attendance. The Summit, which is now in its fifth year, continues to go from strength to strength, attracting hundreds of delegates and exhibitors at the inaugural Vox Conference Centre gathering held last year.

This year’s Summit theme, entitled ‘Strengthening Partnerships’, celebrates the success of the contribution of private-public sector partnerships in delivering improved security over many years and asks how forging even closer working partnerships can build on this for the future.

The one-day event offers an exclusive opportunity for NSI approved companies to meet and keep up-to-date with the latest industry developments, learn about innovations within the electronic security, guarding and fire safety sectors and benefit from exclusive offers. It promises to be an informative day providing bite-sized sessions presented by high-profile speakers, as well as an exhibition whereby many of the industry’s suppliers and technology companies will be on hand to share their knowledge.

The extensive conference programme has been designed to deliver three concurrent elective content streams. The sessions will include a focus on sectors that have particular security systems, guarding and fire safety challenges such as retail and further education, as well as specific sessions featuring Case Study examples of how the private sector is increasingly working closely with law enforcement.

There will also be an opportunity for attendees to gain an insight into specific standards-related updates and to meet with the NSI’s technical experts.

Richard Jenkins, CEO of the NSI, commented: “The NSI Summit is a valuable and enjoyable opportunity for NSI approved companies to keep abreast of the latest thinking and innovations in our fast-changing sectors. This year, we’re extending a personal invitation to individuals from the guarding services and fire safety sectors as we broaden the content of the event to include all NSI approved companies and industry stakeholders. Our aim is to deliver an enriching experience for all delegates, whatever their areas of expertise and interest.”
