ASIAL has cancelled the 2020 Australian Security Industry Awards following a second wave of COVID-19 infections.

“Following the resurgence in the number of COVID-19 infections and restrictions on interstate travel, the ASIAL board has decided that it would be irresponsible to proceed with the 2020 Australian Security Industry Awards,” said ASIAL general manager, John Fleming.

“As a result, the awards have been cancelled for this year – we look forward to seeing you all when the pandemic has been brought under control.”

The award night, which includes the OSPAs and Security Medals, is the industry’s foremost celebration of excellence in solutions, applications and individual achievement across the manpower and electronic security segments.
