Notice on CONSULT 2020

Notice on CONSULT 2020 Image
Each year SecuritySpecifiers hosts the highly anticipated CONSULT Technical Security Symposium. While this event adds immeasurable value to the industry, it is with deep regret that, due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we have decided to cancel this year’s event. We cannot foresee the health environment in late October, and it is unfair to ask our attendees to commit to being in an environment of uncertain risk. CONSULT 2020 was to be held October 24-27 in Nashville.
We look forward to a sensational CONSULT 2021 to be held October 23-26 at the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk in San Antonio!


The Prognosis for Large Security Projects

The Prognosis for Large Security Projects Image
Construction, architect billings, and security design work have all taken a hit during this pandemic crisis. Architectural and security design billings are leading indicators of security project work to come, or at least those projects which result from such design services. On May 20th, SecuritySpecifiers and SIA assembled a panel of noted security design consultants to participate in this important webinar and comment on their current design activity, outlook for the future, and suggestions for the industry. If you missed it, or just want to see it again, the recording is now available for your viewing pleasure.
