The Global MSC Security 2016 Conference and Exhibition took place on Tuesday 15 November at the Bristol Hotel
"“Despite always raising the bar of the exceptional standard of speakers every year, we always manage to attract a fresh, high calibre of presenters who are willing to share their security arena knowledge and expertise for the benefit of others. We are delighted that this year was no exception and we have received so many comments of the engaging and interesting subjects our presenters provided to the hundred plus delegates. Our exhibitors have once again been delighted with the end-users we were able to introduce to them to who have active projects they wish to procure equipment for. It’s a ‘win, win’ for everyone there!”

2016 Gordon McLanaghan award for Security Innovation
The winner of the 2016 Gordon McLanaghan award for security innovation went to Gloucester City Council. They picked up a cheque for £1,000 and a stunning piece of Bristol Blue Glass.
The project was to bring free outdoor public WiFi to the city by co-locating WiFi access points with CCTV cameras. Using this infrastructure the installation did not require expensive or disruptive works resulting in a rapid deployment. GloucesterCityWIFI now enables shoppers, workers, tourists and other visitors to connect to the internet easily and free of charge from their mobile devices and tablets whilst out and about in the city centre.
The project was supplied, planned and delivered with BT Redcare.
Strong nomiations were also received from North Somerset Council, Lancashire Constabulary and the Metropolitan Police.
