About this event

'Pitch on the Ship'

(Please note that we will be vetting attendees to ensure our sponsors deliver to the correct audience and confirmation of your place will be confirmed 2 weeks prior to the event)

HQS Wellington, River Thames,

Thursday 9 Sep 2021

FREE FOR ISSA-UK MEMBERS (6.5 CPEs on attending) 

It's time for the annual co-branded ISSA-UK and 2|SEC - 'Pitch on the Ship' event - where security software/solution vendors battle it out for Best Product, Best Service Provider and Best Speaker prizes, as voted by you, the audience. Of course to top that off we continue our tradition of excellent keynote speakers throughout the day and then onto the evening reception with fish and chips and drinks on deck.

How does it work? We offer each vendor a 15 minute speaking pitch to tell us what makes their product the best, in a fast-paced and lively environment (let's get them a few questions this year too!).  This unique format enables delegates to understand exactly where the provider or technology is in the market, and each vendor will have a stand so you can find out more about their solutions.  Interspersed you have our keynotes, lunch, and plenty of networking with peers. It's always a great day! 

After hours, we will enjoy a networking drinks reception and entertainment on deck, kindly sponsored by 2|SEC, sampling the autumnal weather at it's finest (we hope - there are canopies if needed until the worst is over!)
