Genetec to host virtual trade show after industry events postponed

In the wake of multiple security industry events being postponed due to coronavirus outbreaks, Genetec will host its first-ever virtual trade show, Genetec Connect’DX.
Pre-registration for the event, scheduled for April 20-22, is now open.

In an announcement, the company explains Connect’DX will be geared toward connecting physical security professionals from around the world directly to Genetec experts and industry leaders. In what would normally be a busy conference calendar including such events as ISC West, IFSEC and Intertraffic, all postponed due to COVID-19, the business wants to be sure to engage and support its customers as they normally do in-person, the announcement states.

“Our team looks forward to bringing Genetec solutions directly to the customer and we are happy to do so in a new way this April. Though we love connecting in person, we’re excited by the opportunity to bring everyone together online,” says Andrew Elvish, vice president of marketing. “We’re ready to showcase our portfolio of physical security solutions, discuss key trends and technologies that affect our industry and provide a preview of what is to come from our product teams.”

While the complete Connect’DX agenda and keynote speaker list is yet to be published, the event is shaping up to include:
Sessions on key trends and new technology
Keynotes from industry leaders, including Genetec President Pierre Racz
Product demos and Q&As with the product team
Panel discussions on industry topics including privacy, cybersecurity and Cloud
• Free training sessions led by the company’s training department
