Now in its 17th year, the event recognises the skill and often bravery of professionals who play a role that can be life-saving and yet unsung, serving as the Oscars of the security and fire industries. It is also an opportunity to network and is, of course, a great night out.
Gerry Dunphy, event director- IFSEC & FIREX International said: ‘We are very much looking forward to hosting the industry in November and recognising the hard work and dedication of those working within these industries alongside celebrating the new innovations that are shaking up the market.’
Many of the finalists exhibited at IFSEC and FIREX International, including MorphoWave by Morpho, which made the cut in the Access Control Product of the Year category; Cirrus Hybrid by Protec Fire Detection in Active Fire Innovation of the Year; Sony’s 4k camera, the SNC-VM772R (CCTV Camera Equipment of the Year); SleepSafe (Combined Security & Fire Solution); and Kings Security (Large Security Installer), whose installers won prizes in the Engineers of Tomorrow competition.
This year’s charity partners are the Ghana Education Trust and Suzy Lamplugh Trust. The event has in the past raised funds for the Children’s Burns Trust, ActionAid and Victim Support among others.
