- Women in Security
Having organised events for several years now, we are often asked by suppliers, manufacturers, buyers and the like if we can arrange to put people together in one room at one time. As a provider of security products and services, you genuinely want to meet new people and network with potential customers – people who genuinely are in the market for things new and innovative and have (if not right now) the budget to spend. You don’t, however, want time–wasters. In a word, you need a filter, to get to know just those potential customers that you want to know. So we bring you a special event that does just this. It will be for a handful of exhibitors to meet a carefully selected group of industry related people that either buy or recommend products and services; some will know each other whilst some will not.
We appreciate that this needs to be a memorable and enjoyable experience for all concerned with a bit of work thrown in, so we chose a venue that can meet all expectations, deliver all of our needs and make the event special – that being the award-winning Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales.
Day 1 will start on the evening of Wednesday the 27th of March 2019 where all of us will meet for a very informal drinks reception and barbeque. We have secured the Barbecue Terrace which is enclosed and has a large fire pit and heaters but more to the point, is exclusively for our use.
Day 2 starts after breakfast where we will arrange a morning of 30 minute appointments where you can discuss needs and solutions. We will then break for lunch after which those that wish to can play golf and if you are not a golfer there are a number of other activities available such as laser clays, laserquest and crazy golf that we will organise for you. Likewise, if you would like to spend the afternoon catching up with work, that can be arranged.
On the evening of 28th March, we will hold an exclusive black tie Gala Dinner where we will meet for drinks and then sit down for a relaxed networking dinner.
Day 3 again, after breakfast, we will arrange a further morning of appointments finishing at lunch time where you will be free to stay for lunch, go home or even stay on and enjoy more of the facilities.
For your exhibition space, you have a private and enclosed room with no distractions and can engage in secure discussions. What you put in that room is up to you – either equipment demos or presentation on laptop and banners etc.
All of our attendees will be high level decision makers and influencers who have been specially selected. We want this event to be a great success for all our attendees so won’t be wasting anyone’s time! The plan is that even if you don’t have an appointment with every delegate you should go away from the event knowing everyone who attended and hopefully having made some firm business connections.

Thank you very much for a very enjoyable and useful couple of days at The Celtic Manor. It was good to meet the suppliers in an informal setting and socially at the Barbeque and dinner. I have arranged follow up meetings with three suppliers to discuss specific project requirements in more detail. – Ken Graham, Instrom Independent Security Consultants
Liz, Thank you to you and Roy for a great event last week. This was my first event of this type and I felt it was very well organised and offered us as an exhibitor a great opportunity to meet with the right type of decision makers. Thank you again for the opportunity. – Dean Kernot, Vista
It’s very difficult trying to keep up with how manufacturers are embracing new technology at the speed they are so when an organiser like Professional Security invites you to an event with a number of manufacturers to meet it is worth taking the time to attend. With approximately 4 meetings per morning, for 30 mins each, you get a taste of what is being offered by the companies you have been scheduled with. The networking opportunities that also present themselves over the 2 days are excellent with a good all round selection of people attending. – Warren Collins, Bridge Technical Consultants
On behalf of the Pelco team we would like to thank you for a great event! The organisation of the event was very slick, well done Liz. The scheduled meetings, we believe, will bring us a good return. Thanks to Roy for his guidance on some of the meetings. Looking forward to the next one! – Tony Burns, Pelco
Many thanks for your kind invitation for my participation at this year’s Celtic Manor event. I thought the event was excellent and most enjoyable with good focussed business meetings and great social networking. I’ve already had a follow on meeting with one vendor and have arranged to see another in a week or so’s time. – Simon Whitehouse, SGW

Please can I say a big thank you to Roy and yourself and everyone involved in organising the event. It was very useful as well as being thoroughly enjoyable. – Chris Harrison, North Somerset Council
The format is very good. The quality and calibre of the candidates was very high. A great mix of consultants, end users and integrators made for a very valuable event. Finally the event was very well organised and everyone we spoke with said it was of value to their business. One to rebook – Vicky Brewin, Gallagher
Thank you both for two really good days and nights. It was a good and beneficial Networking event. Everything was superb and as usual brilliantly organised. – Malcolm Dawson, Leeds University
We laid our trust in the hands of Professional Security Magazine & we are delighted with our decision. The event was by far the best we ever attended. – John Gibson, IC Realtime
Roy & Liz, I just wanted to thank you both for an enjoyable few days last week. David and I actually found the format very useful and it was good to see some new and interesting products. It was hosted expertly and your hospitality was exceptional as always! Thank you once again and we’d certainly be interested in getting involved in future, similar events should you do them. – Jon Roadknight & David Fisk, Cornerstone
Really nice to meet you and I really enjoyed attending. Great organisation and very informative. – Ian Pugh, Intu Retail Centres
Thanks for a very well organised event. I enjoyed the format and felt the quality of delegates was very good. – Matt Jones, Flir
I thoroughly enjoyed the event and meeting the team from Professional Security Magazine. I know you were all working extremely hard but hope that you also found time to enjoy the social activities as we did. It was a great venue and very well organised. I found the meetings with the suppliers extremely useful and well planned, allowing enough time for introductions and an overview of their products and services. – Graham Turner, Turner Broadcasting
Big thanks to Roy Cooper and Liz Lloyd for an excellent 3 day event at the Celtic Manor. Some high quality end users, consultants and integrators at the event with a nice mix of manufacturers. I enjoyed every minute and I’m looking forward to working on some exciting opportunities with new partners off the back of it. I’m sure everyone who attended got something from it and I look forward to next year. – Daniel Bishop – Vicon
Thank you very much for the invitation to the Special Event. The opportunity for networking and the structured 1-2-1’s were spot on, some real positive meetings from my point of view. Despite the cold, the golf was lovely, all the more so because of the excellent company that made up our 4-ball. Tragically we didn’t ‘stalk’ any celebrities around the course, but there’s always next year. Well done on splendid event. – Eamonn Murphy, TIS
