A clear sign that 'IP' has come of age has been confirmed as end users and consultants now represent almost half of the registered visitors to attend IIPSEC 2008.
With arrangements for IIPSEC 2008 well underway and visitor registration at unprecedented levels, some trends are emerging. The team behind IIPSEC, the IP People, are reporting that there has been a considerable swing towards End Users and consultants registering for the event now representing nearly half of the registrations (48%), Installer/Integrators close behind with 38%.
Event Director, Kevin Fagan, stated, "The shift towards interest from end-users and consultants in-line with global market trends as IP is no longer a 'black art'. The major change this year is we are seeing more and more Security and IT Managers register to attend as they are keen to see for themselves the benefits of the technology".
More interest in Integrated solutions
When looking at the areas of interest there is a clear leader with Integrated solutions out ahead with 31% followed by Video-over-IP at 25%, and Access control at 13%. Converged solutions, network technologies, biometrics and analytics represent a further 23%.
With its structured exhibition, education and product approach, IIPSEC 2008 will be the most time-efficient way for installers, consultants, end-users and stakeholders to gain a valuable in-sight into the latest developments within the security and BMS market place.
The organisers are expecting more than 4,000 visitors to this year's event. With the increase interest from End-Users it is clear that there will be a substantial amount of business done at Stoneleigh Park in January.
