A month of travel and education

A month of travel and education

February, the month of love, captures the hearts of some with flowers, chocolates and cute stuffed teddy bears, but for me, it's travel that warms my heart and this month is shaping up to be what I call my “travel trifecta.” First it was New Orleans, now Grapevine, Texas and next is San Diego.

Having just recently returned from “N'awlins” from our show, SecurityNext, which was a huge success, I am currently in the midst of attending Milestone's MIPS 2020, focusing on the power of open. So far, I have learned that “open” gives security integrators choices, which empowers them to create exactly what end users want when it comes to security-related installs — experiences.

“The power of open offers flexibility, choices and possibilities,” Kenneth Petersen, chief sales and marketing manager, Milestone Systems, said during his presentation at MIPS.

As MIPS concludes today, I will continue to share juicy bits of knowledge gained (For example, did you know Milestone became a seller on AWS?) on my Twitter feed @SSN_Ginger, so be sure to follow me if you aren't already, and be on the look out for more on MIPS 2020 and Milestone in the coming weeks.

Wrapping up this week and into the weekend, I will be jet-setting off to San Diego for AMAG Technology's 20th Security Engineering Symposium (SES) 2020. This will be a time of learning, networking, developing relationships and interacting with distinguished end users, consultants and integrators with discussions about modern technologies, trends and how the real world of security in changing.

“AMAG Technology's Security Engineering Symposium brings together our community of end-users, consultants, integrators and technology partners to network, interact and discuss the industry's latest issues and trends," AMAG Technology, Director of Business Development, Kami Dukes, told Security Systems News. "It's important for our customers and partners to attend because we learn so much more when we collaborate and work together. AMAG gets inspired to do things differently by listening to the community's interaction and feedback. Their engagement is invaluable. The event remarkably contributes to our product vision and improved solution offerings to the market. I think it's the most valuable event of the year."

Be on the look out for “tweets de jour” from me during AMAG's SES 2020 and if you haven't yet booked travel to any security-related events this year, I highly encourage you to:

1. Do some research to find the perfect event that relates to you and your business.
2. Reach out to the event director with any questions or comments prior to the event.
3. Register and book travel.
4. To get the most out of your event, read my LinkedIn article about how to get the most out of a conference experience.
4. Go enjoy, network and learn!
