Thanks to covid, the last ST event was also at Birmingham, in February 2020. That did have hand sanitiser for coronavirus precautions – little did we know then that life in general and social gatherings in particular would be so changed by the pandemic. The Belfry is a new venue for ST because the previous Birmingham venue, the Metropole at the NEC, is shut for refurbishment until later in the year.
ST21 Birmingham (and ST21 Manchester, on July 20) will see some changes – there’ll not be a conference, just the exhibition. And the night before instead of a formal sit-down dinner, as it’s midsummer we are hosting a more informal barbecue in the grounds of the Belfry Resort. Like the rest of ST, attendees can network and mingle in a relaxed atmosphere.
Professional Security MD Roy Cooper said: “Registrations are going well, everybody seems to be wanted to get up there; we are having some extra bedrooms, because people want to stay over, after the barbecue. Everybody can’t wait to get back out there, and we are no different to anybody else.”
It’s free to attend , whatever your interest in private security, whether you are an installer, end user, consultant or specifier, someone from the police, or related sector, or just someone who wants to stay up to date with security products and services. To register to attend, visit the ‘events‘ part of the Professional Security website, or email Liz Lloyd – [email protected] She’s also your contact if you are interested in exhibiting.
