The Security Event 2021 Round Up!

As you’ll know, last month, we attended The Security Event, a three day exhibition consisting of all things security, held at the NEC in Birmingham. This was actually our first event as exhibitors and we wanted to begin by saying a huge thank you to the organisers for all the hard work and effort that went into making the event a success and ensuring everyone was safe – it didn’t go unnoticed! Secondly, it felt amazing to be back meeting new people face to face whilst showcasing what we have to offer and we can’t wait to attend more exciting events in the near future. 


Access Security Products is the only UK distributor of Farfisa, therefore, we were representing their brand as well as our own. It was an honour to have the opportunity to demonstrate the quality of Farfisa products which included; Farfisa UK DUO Alba, Hero, Solvo and Matrix as well as bespoke panels and internal stations to industry professionals and like minded individuals. In terms of our own products, we displayed an extensive range of maglocks and exit buttons in a variety of special finishes including red, grey, black, white and brass – receiving a particularly positive reception! 


Being amongst so many other great companies in the industry, we wanted to make sure we stood out and provided a valuable learning experience at our stand. Having real products plugged in and ready for passers by to have a play around with really boosted our set up and offered a practical demonstration rather than just an image or verbal explanation. We felt this worked really well for us and took our exhibit stand to the next level, giving our customers a real-life feel for our products and what they could expect.


Each day of the event brought new faces, with the highest footfall being Wednesday, and we got the chance to strengthen our relationships with new and current customers – we even acquired some potential new business with a strong interest in both our access control systems and as previously mentioned, our maglocks. 


Since the event, business has gone from strength to strength as we launched silver and gold levels of Farfisa install partners. This essentially means that the installation team members that have shown a particularly high level of skill and competence in installing Farfisa products in the UK will be awarded either silver or gold accreditation to demonstrate their abilities to customers. The criteria for achieving this involved;


  • Reaching a set number of Farfisa system installs in reduced and duo technology
  • Demonstrating sound programming knowledge (incl. Bluetooth) 
  • Completed training with our in-house Farfisa UK technical support 


We are incredibly pleased with the success of our first exhibition and the positive outcomes that have followed. Here’s to further growth and hopefully many more events to come, we’ll keep you updated!
