SEN’S CCTV test target and technical adviser, Norman from Tavcom, says SAGE pre-regos have now passed the 400 mark and attendees need to pre-register to ensure they don’t experience delays at the Realm Hotel in Canberra from 12-6pm next Monday, November 12.

“I wouldn’t say the Realm Hotel isn’t a great environment to wait in,” said Norman. “But if you’re as keen to get your hands on the latest security technologies as I am, make sure you pre-register here now and keep the waiting to a bare minimum.”

According to Norman, he and Ronnie Rotakin were subjected to an excruciating wait when they attended an automation show in the U.S. recently.

“By the time I got into the hall I was completely exhausted and had no energy left to visit the 1500 exhibits at the exhibition centre,” Norman said. “All I could do was go back to my room and ring for a foot rub.”

SAGE 2018 gives government security managers and facilities managers, security installers and integrators, and security consultants, the perfect opportunity to get a look at the latest security technologies in their home town with no travel and no need to negotiate over expenses.

There are 33 exhibitors at SAGE 2018, including Honeywell, HID, Saab, CIC Technology, Gallagher, Geutebruck, Milestone, Chase, LSC, Mega Fortris, eka, CyberLock, EVVA, Gunnebo, Future Fibre Technologies, traka ASSA ABLOY, OZtime, Panasonic, Sektor, Sunell, Bridgewater MultiDoors, SRA Solutions, Protective Barriers Australia, Axis Communications, Perimeter Systems Australia, Pelco by Schneider Electric, FSH, VSP, C.R. Kennedy, Ezi Security Systems, Mobotix, Inner Range, EnviroCam and Smiths Detection.

Pre-register for SAGE now, advises Norman.
