Farpointe at TSE 2023

Farpointe in the United Kingdom

Farpointe Data exhibited at The Security Event (TSE) in Birmingham, UK, 25-27 April. This three-day event hosted a great line-up of electronic security companies from the UK and European markets, including a strong showing from North American manufacturers.

In review, TSE provided an excellent opportunity to meet with our existing partners and new professionals alike. The show was attended by dealers, integrators, specifiers, distributors, VARs, and, of course, manufacturers from around the security industry. Birmingham is a convenient destination in the region and the show drew from the UK, Ireland and Western Europe.

If you missed this year's event, you can register your interest for TSE 2024, which will be held 30 April - 2 May 2024.
