Euralarm invites sector to join 2022 Industry Forum in Brussels in June

Euralarm is encouraging fire and security professionals to join the discussion at its 2022 Industry Forum, taking place on 21 June in Brussels.

This years’ topics are set to include the Euralarm Strategy 2019-2024, followed by workshops on ‘International Standards and Trade’ and ‘Is your business ready for the future?’

Euralarm-IndustryForum-22The event is open to both members and non-members, and the conference venue will be the Double Tree by Hilton Brussels City in Brussels, Belgium.

The Industry Forum will start with a Networking Lunch and will end with an optional President’s Dinner. In between, participants will have ample opportunities to mingle with Euralarm members, industry peers and MEPs, build relationships and exchange views on the profession and the future of the fire and security industry.

The forum will contain presentations from industry experts, representatives from the European standardisation organisations and representatives of the European Commission.

The provisional Forum agenda is as follows:

  • 14:00 – Welcome and opening, Jon Könz, President Euralarm
  • 14:05 – Update on progress of Euralarm strategy 2019 – 2024, Jon Könz, President Euralarm
  • 14:45 – Coffee and refreshments
  • 15:00 – Workshop I: International Standards and Trade, Workshop II: Is your business ready for the future? Questions and answers to follow.
  • 17:00 – Closing

The International Standards and Trade workshop will aim to cover the legal framework of the WTO agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade, as well as a discussion on the threats and benefits for the fire safety and security industry related to international standards.

Workshop II, on the other hand, will focus on cyber security, remote connections and remote services – all examples of evolving technology that fire and security businesses need to ensure they’re on top of. It will also include a discussion on how to work and implement standards on a local level, and how the standardisation organisations and industry associations can support the SMEs to be ready for the future.

Professionals who would like to participate in the Industry Forum can start their registration for this event at the Euralarm website, here.
