Benchmark June 2022

by Benchmark Magazine

The much anticipated IFSEC International 2022, on its 49th edition despite the pause because of COVID 19, provided an excellent opportunity to see the latest technologies and most prominent players in the security industry under one roof. Visitors were a mixture of security installers and integrators, end-users, distributors, consultants, manufacturers and key security associations.

At IFSEC, leading security suppliers across access control, video surveillance, perimeter protection, cyber security and more collectively showcased the most innovative products launched since COVID-19.

This year there was a big focus on training. For the first time at IFSEC International, engineers and integrators were given the opportunity to attend 4–6-hour training sessions hosted by a mix of specialist training providers and leading vendors in security and fire. As an added value, attendees secured CPD points.

The shortage of trained engineers in the security and fire industries has worried the industry for a while. To bridge the gap, PSI Next Generation Events, held in June and September, will bring together apprenticeship candidates and companies to recruit the best.

The two-day events will comprise a day of presentations held under the guidance of fire and security apprenticeship provider Skills for Security and include a programme of in-depth technology installation and application demonstrations and a table-top exhibition area featuring key manufacturers, service providers and recruitment companies. This will be followed by a networking dinner in the evening and a golf day on the second day in which players will compete for the IFSEC Cup.

Here are the dates for your diary:
• Warren Weir at Luton Hoo on 22nd & 23rd June 2022
• Celtic Manor on 14th & 15th September 2022
