It’s show time

May 2016 News & Events

Securex 2016 is upon us. It’s been almost a year of hard work for the organisers as they rushed to get everything ready, as well as a lot of planning and preparations from the exhibitors as they decide how to display their companies and products, who will be on the show floor and what the goal of their stands are.

For some it’s a matter of reinforcing their position and brand in the market, while others use Securex as a launchpad for new products or services. Whatever they do, it’s hard work culminating in three days of being “on” – and maybe a party or two.

Of course it doesn’t end there. No matter what your reasons for staking your claim at Securex may be, the ideal for everyone is to have more work to do once the show is over. Whether it’s following up on new leads, building new relationships, or even addressing concerns expressed at the event, most find themselves with a long to do list once the doors close.

For visitors to the show, it’s a question of where to go and what to see. Most would like to get an overview of what’s happening in the industry, but there are also those who need to find out more on a particular subject related to something they or their companies are planning. Both types of visitors are important as those with plans are ready to learn and (hopefully) make a quick decision, while others will take what they learn and use it in future as they get involved in different projects.

Hi-Tech Security Solutions will be there again, so be sure to stop by the stand. If you haven’t received it in the post by then, you will be able to grab a copy of the CCTV Handbook 2016, which is being posted at the same time as the May issue. Even though we have a large CCTV section in this issue (we couldn’t fit everything into the handbook), it’s nothing compared to the handbook itself. Be sure to check it out and, as always, comments and criticisms are welcome.

Enjoy the May issue and the CCTV Handbook, and here’s to a successful Securex 2016 for everyone.
