Info-destruction day

by Mark Rowe

Register early for the annual Information Destruction Exhibition and Conference, asks the British Security Industry Association (BSIA).

The annual event – now in its fifth year – is organised by the BSIA’s Information Destruction section, and aims to provide a forum for information destruction people to share best practice and learn about recent developments in legislation, standards and technology.

Anthony Pearlgood, Chairman of the BSIA’s Information Destruction section, says: “This event grows in popularity each year; 75 per cent of delegates surveyed from 2012’s event had previously attended the exhibition, and 100pc of respondents said that they would be attending it again in 2013.”

The exhibition also gives delegates the opportunity to see products and services from exhibitors. Past exhibitors have included manufacturers of shredding machinery, makers of secure bags and a paper mill which buys paper products from ID companies.

Speaking about his time at 2012’s event, Richard Mcllwaine-Biggins, of member company DiskShred, described it as “a great opportunity to network with my peers and see some of the latest technology first hand. Any time out of the office has to be justified and this was time well spent.”

An early-bird discount is also available for delegates who book their places before February 28, 2013.

The conference is on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at the National Motorcycle Museum, near the NEC in Birmingham. This June’s event was also held here. The event will include a drinks reception, with lunch and other refreshments, allowing attendants time to network. A networking dinner is also planned for the evening, for which attendees can register their interest in through the online booking form.
