The Security Event 2023, one of the most anticipated European security conferences of the year, was held in Birmingham from April 25th to April 27th 2023. The event brought together over a thousand professionals from the security industry to showcase the latest innovations, share best practices, and discuss emerging trends in the industry. This year’s event featured exhibitors from various industries, including physical security, cybersecurity, access control and much more. And Tapkey was in the midst of it.

Tapkey as Part of the Access Control Executive Brief Theatre

The Access Control Executive Brief Theatre was organised and hosted by no other than Lee Odess, a thought leader in the industry. It was developed to unite the global access control and smart lock community, and foster discussions on the most critical security questions. 

It featured a series of keynote speeches and panel discussions. Together with other ground-breaking companies in the access control industry, including LenelS2, Wavelynx and Sentry Interactive, Tapkey was part of its educational programme that covered a wide range of global observations, trends, and theories.

On his Linkedin account, Lee Odess emphasizes: “Thrilled with how this all turned out at The Security Event! The Access Control Executive Brief Theatre has been busy 🥳”

One of our presentations was about how to be future-proof with mobile access standards, ensuring seamless interoperability for integrators and solution providers. By embracing these standards, we empower integrators to deliver efficient and versatile solutions to their clients.
