A fifth Information Destruction Conference and Exhibition is being run by the BSIA (British Security Industry Association). The one-day event will run on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at the 2012 location, the National Motorcycle Museum, by the NEC in Birmingham. The event’s aimed at key decision makers in organisations that carry out the secure destruction of confidential material.
Anthony Pearlgood, chairman of the BSIA’s Information Destruction section, pictured, describes the event as “a fantastic opportunity for members of the information destruction industry to learn about best practice, meet with relevant suppliers from the shredding industry and network with their peers in the industry.”
The 2012’s conference, as featured in the July print issue of Professional Security Magazine, heard a variety of speakers discussing topics including how businesses within the industry can prosper during the current economic climate and the trends and future of the paper market.
Next year’s event plans to cover the environmental issues around information destruction, the procurement perspective of buying information destruction services, and how to invest for growth.
The exhibition itself will give delegates the chance to see products and services from exhibitors. The day is also an opportunity to network with other professionals, including a drinks reception, with lunch and other refreshments. A networking dinner is planned on the evening of the event for which attendees can register their interest in through the online booking form.
The BSIA surveyed those who attended the event last year and received positive responses. Some 90pc of delegates rated the time available to network with other exhibitors and delegates highly, along with praising the format and organisation of the event. All respondents said that they would attend the event again next year.
Richard McIlwaine, of DiskShred, found the event to be an “informative and interactive exhibition” along with being “a great opportunity to network with peers and see some of the latest technology first hand.”
The price for members is £100 and £120 for non-members. To find out more details or to book your place as a delegate or exhibitor visit the online booking form here.
