Hugely Successful Event Brings Together
IP UserGroup Members New and Old

The Oxford Belfry Hotel Thame played host of the latest in the series of IP-in-Action LIVE roadshow events that have criss-crossed the country over the past year.

Having visited Cambridge, Newcastle, Birmingham Oldbury and now Oxford it is clear that there is still an appetite for these type of events and despite the pressure of the current economy attendances have been good and this was further born out by the quality and numbers attending the Oxford event.

The programme for next year is in an advanced stage of planning and we expect the events to offer the same “Quality Time with Quality People” that we strive for. The  IP UserGroup relies upon the support of the exhibitors, speakers, delegates and guests to make IP-in-Action LIVE events successful and would like to thank all who have participated in 2011.

The Oxford Event started the evening prior, with a networking dinner when ten of the exhibitors and guests enjoyed the hospitality of  “The Hatch” in Thame High Street, where much fun was had by all.

The Event proper started with a brief welcome from IP UserGroup’s Paul Hennings and was followed by an extremely interesting and thought provoking programme from your seminar presenters (details below). Prior to the seminars and during the mid-morning and lunchtime breaks the Exhibition and Workshop areas were extremely busy and there was a buzz about the venue that indicated that much business was being done.

Paul Hennings commented, “The hotel did us proud, the two exhibition rooms and the lecture theatre were busy throughout the day and the number of mini-meetings going on around the place was very gratifying”. “Despite a tough year for the industry at large, the security market is in a far better place than many other sectors and it is important that we continue to bring together manufacturers, developers, consultants, integrators and end-users at this type of event”.
