Security Sales & Integration Summit to Launch in 2016
New hosted-buyer event for installing security contractors, co-located with the CE Pro Summit, will focus on revenue growth, more.
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – EH Publishing and AE Ventures are partnering to launch the Security Sales & Integration (SSI) Summit, a new hosted-buyer style event for security dealers and integrators that will be co-located with the long-standing CE Pro and Commercial Integrator Summits in Atlanta, Nov. 2-4.
SSI Summit will focus on sales and integration, highlighting the products, services, technologies and techniques that contribute to rapid revenue growth and the integration of security products and systems with other technologies in homes and commercial/institutional buildings.
Nearly 100 senior executive guests will be hosted in VIP style, with the Summit covering and arranging air travel and hotel accommodations and providing food and refreshments throughout the events. The participants will take in a program including informative and inspiring general sessions and keynotes, idea-sharing roundtable sessions, social events and small group presentations and scheduled one-on-one meetings with sponsors. Sponsors will have the opportunity for high quality engagements with the biggest, best and most progressive players in electronic security.
Additional benefits will accrue for both guests and sponsors from the co-location and assimilation of the SSI Summit with the CE Pro and Commercial Integrator Summits. In the joint showcase exhibits and social functions, SSI Summit guests will connect with suppliers in adjacent categories like home and building control, lighting and A/V and with potential allies and merger/acquisition partners at the integrator level. SSI Summit sponsors can connect with custom and commercial integrators that are adding security to their product mix and find their own alliance partners in adjacent product categories.
The three co-located Summits (hosting 300+ elite integrators and dealers and featuring more than 150 sponsoring suppliers) together make up the Total Technology Summit, a VIP mega event that reflects the increasing connectivity at both the technical and business level across A/V, control and security.
“We’re excited to be adding this third leg to the stool,” says Jason Knott, EH Publishing vice president, Consumer Electronics & Security. “The Summit format and purpose is delivering great value to custom and commercial integrators, and we’re certain we can deliver more of the same to bigger, better security dealers and integrators.”
AE Ventures President John Galante says the SSI Summit guests can expect to be treated to a results-driving program.
“Working with Jason, and SSI Editor-in-Chief/Associate Publisher Scott Goldfine, we’ll showcase the innovations and best practices that are driving sales growth and the beyond-security integration opportunities that are doing the same,” Galante says. “It will be an awesome opportunity for vendors to connect with dealer business leaders at the moment their minds catch fire with strategies for growth.”
