The Security Event Announces Partnership with the Access Control Executive Brief for "The Forum"

Birmingham UK, November 6, 2023 - The Security Event is thrilled to announce its deepened partnership with the Access Control Executive Brief for the upcoming 2024 edition taking place from 30 April to 02 May inclusive at the home of the UK security industry, the NEC Birmingham.

Building upon the enormous success of last year's inaugural Access Control Executive Brief Theatre which featured thought leadership sessions and a tech showcase, the extended 2024 partnership has evolved to introduce "The Forum." This enhanced activation will include a standalone stage with a larger seating capacity for engaging presentations and thought leadership sessions on various topics such as digital transformation, enterprise software, best practices, cloud and mobile computing, and much more. Additionally up to eight innovative companies will have an unique opportunity to showcase their products and services within the hub.

This exclusive collaboration aims to unite industry leaders, showcase thought leadership, and highlight business innovations in the access control and smart lock industry through presentations, round table discussions and creative storytelling.  With the support of the Access Control Executive Brief and TSE, participating companies will have the chance to create compelling content and engage with attendees before, during, and after the show.

The Security Event has rapidly become the major destination for the UK security industry and has now caught the attention of the global security market attracting attendees from across Europe, Middle East, North America and beyond. The exclusive participation of the Access Control Executive Brief reaffirms its commitment to delivering the best possible experience for industry professionals.

"We are excited to deepen our partnership with The Security Event and introduce 'The Forum,'" said Lee Odess, CEO of the Access Control Executive Brief. "This event will provide an unparalleled platform for thought leadership and collaboration within the access control and smart lock industry."

Peter Poole, Sales Director of The Security Event added “it’s a privilege to be working with Lee to develop and  activate such an integral part of our show.  For TSE to gain the recognition from someone as globally recognisable as Lee is awesome.  The Access Control market is rapidly evolving and it is truly great that TSE can play its part in bringing together global influencers to challenge, debate and innovate”
