Risk UK announced as Official Media Partner for Cortech Open Innovation Events 2016

Cortech Developments – the specialist in mitigating risk in relation to workplace safety, security and building efficiency – has announced the appointment of Risk UK as its Official Media Partner for the 2016 schedule of Cortech Open Innovation Events (COIE).

The COIE series provides a showcase for some of the latest advances in security, fire and building control technology and a platform for demonstrating how interoperability between systems can reduce risk and cost, improve operational efficiencies and provide greater situational awareness for end users including risk and security management professionals.

The events aim to challenge us all to think about the ways in which we manage infrastructures and buildings with a view towards enhanced safety, security, interoperability and sustainability.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with such a high profile and reputable media organisation,” explained Paul Spence, marketing and communications manager at Cortech Developments, when discussing the collaboration with Pro-Activ Publications. “The partnership will add real value to the events moving forward, and allow us to reach a much wider audience of end users and consultants. Importantly, the COIE series and Risk UK are perfectly aligned when it comes to educating the market around risk mitigation.”

Published by Pro-Activ Publications, Risk UK is the UK’s premier monthly security management and fire safety journal dedicated to addressing all aspects of risk faced by today’s business community, in turn assisting those responsible for the security, business continuity, safety and risk management of the UK’s largest companies with their day-to-day operations.

Commenting on the new Media Partnership with Cortech Developments, Brian Sims (Editor of Risk UK) stated: “This is a great opportunity for Risk UK to be part of a growing and well-respected event brand. Building, security, safety and IT systems demand careful consideration if the benefits they offer are to be fully realised by host organisations. On that basis, it’s absolutely vital for end users managing and mitigating risk to fully understand the threat landscape and be conversant with the latest solutions.”

Sims added: “The COIE series centres on this very requirement, with the events providing a thought-provoking and educational insight into how the smart integration of technology actively reduces risk.”

The next Cortech Open Innovation Event is to be hosted at Cortech Developments’ headquarters in Knutsford, Cheshire on Tuesday 12 July 2016. This will involve four collaborating manufacturers: Bosch Security Systems (CCTV), Commend (Intercoms), Intech Solutions (Control Room solutions) and Harper Chalice (perimeter intrusion detection and deterrent systems).

All manufacturers present will be available for ‘one-to-one’ discussions with delegates on the day of the event.
