Fire and Security Matters Awards 2024: Entries now open!
04 December 2023
THE FIRE and Security Matters Awards 2024 – organised by Western Business Media and its dedicated magazines serving these sectors, namely Fire Safety Matters and Security Matters – are now open for entries.
Following on from the tremendous success of last year’s Fire and Security Matters Awards, for which there were upwards of 280 entries, it’s time to once again celebrate excellence and innovation in the fire and security sectors.
The winners of the Fire and Security Matters Awards will be revealed at a gala dinner and ceremony to be held at the CBS Arena in Coventry on 12 June 2024. The 2023 gathering was attended by 700-plus industry professionals.
This time around, the evening will be hosted by celebrated comedian and presenter Jason Manford, a team captain on the hugely popular Channel 4 programme 8 out of Ten Cats from 2007-2010 and, more recently, one of the four Judges on ITV’s talent-spotting series Starstruck.
It only takes a few minutes to enter the Fire and Security Matters Awards and it’s the perfect way in which to gain much-deserved recognition for either yourself, your team, a colleague, your organisation, a product/service or a project.
