Key security industry events of 2015

The importance of physical security in the business world will likely grow through 2015 and the years to come, thanks in no small part to recovering economic health around the globe.

Many formerly struggling sectors are now seeing firms expand and therefore spend more on premises, equipment and other assets that need to be secured, while countless big events and infrastructure projects over the next half-decade will also see demand for trained security personnel increase.

For the average facilities manager, an appropriate response to these trends might be to reassess their firm's existing security arrangements, or at least to refamiliarise themselves with the key issues being faced in the industry today. Otherwise, they risk losing their proactive edge in the security stakes and leaving themselves open to a potentially damaging incident.

Fortunately, these professionals will have countless opportunities through 2015 to brush up on their security knowledge and expand the range of their expertise, network with thought-leaders, and hear the success stories of other firms from around the world. Here's a round-up of some of the key events on the security industry calendar scheduled over the next 12 months.

The Manchester Security Exhibition and Conference

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) hosts its first event of 2015 on March 26th, when local businesses, police forces and private security providers will congregate for the Manchester Security Exhibition and Conference at the Bridgewater Hall. Supported by the Greater Manchester Police and Manchester City Crime Prevention Panel, the event will comprise a packed programme of seminars as well as an expansive exhibition floor.

Last year's edition of the event, in which it celebrated its 20th year, attracted more than 200 delegates representing both the public and private sector in the north-west and beyond.

The Total Security Summit

The next edition of Forum Events' Total Security Summit will be held on March 16th and 17th at the Radisson Blue Hotel, London Stansted. Some 5,000 delegates have attended past events from the series, which comprise networking opportunities and seminars but also the ability to arrange one-to-one business meetings - an excellent chance for facilities managers to seek help with upcoming projects and make new connections.

ASIS 14th European Security Conference & Exhibition

International industry body ASIS is set to descend on the Messe Frankfurt Congress Centre in Frankfurt between March 29th and 31st for its 14th annual European Security Conference & Exhibition. Over the three-day programme, delegates will be invited to attend networking events as well as keynotes, case studies and panel discussions, with physical security, cyber security, due diligence and internal theft and fraud among the topics on the agenda.

ASIS invites a wide range of stakeholders from the length of the supply chain to participate, including security professionals, facilities managers, law enforcement, academics, and government and military personnel.

Security Twenty 15

Professional Security Magazine is set to continue its series of Security Twenty regional conferences and exhibitions this year, with events in Nottingham (February 3rd), Bristol (April 15th), Newcastle (July 9th) and London (October 28th) planned so far. The summits are designed to provide experts and business decision-makers with a platform to network and share knowledge, bringing together some of the best minds in the industry to discuss the latest developments impacting security today.
