IFSEC Seeks Top 40 Security and Fire Industry Influencers
As IFSEC approaches its 40th year, the IFSEC team would like to know who you deem the 40 most influential players in the global security and fire industry today. From the hottest conference speakers, to the most followed tweeters, we want your help to compile a global list of the top 40 leading thinkers and innovators.
With a plethora of exciting developments taking place in these innovative industries, we're asking you to nominate the individual you think is the most influential person in the security and fire markets today.
Rob Ratcliff, Web Content Manager on the IFSEC Digital portfolio, comments:
"This is the first time anyone has ever tried to produce such an extensive list of the most influential people in the global security and fire industries. This list is not just another awards programme but a chance for us to find some of the true innovators of the industry whose work is shaping the future of the security and fire world.
"I would ask people to think hard about some of the less well known individuals who are instrumental in changing technology. We want this list to represent the most comprehensive and complete one compiled to date - for this we'll need nominations from all around the world."
The top 40 will represent the entire security buying chain from manufacturer through to distributor, installer, integrator, consultant, trainer and end user.
We're also looking for nominations of key industry stakeholders so don't rule out police chiefs, politicians or trade associations.
Nominate your top influencer, together with their company, and a short explanation (up to 100 words) of why you feel this person is one of the most influential players in the global security and fire industry today. Visit www.ifsec.co.uk now to submit your nomination.
