New York, NY (PRWEB) September 15, 2015
After a successful introduction of dedicated sessions for residential and commercial companies at Securing New Ground (SNG) 2014, the Security Industry Association (SIA) will again present specialized tracks for SNG 2015, scheduled for Oct. 28-29, 2015, at the Millennium Broadway Hotel in New York City.
These specialized tracks empower security companies in the residential space and security companies in the commercial space to get the most out of the conference during three sessions each that run parallel to each other during one afternoon of the conference.
“The sessions dedicated to residential companies received a very good reception last year,” said SIA Chairman V. John Stroia. “Attendees were eager to assess market conditions and network in forums designed to address their specific needs. Likewise, companies that participated in the commercial sessions also reported getting very high value from those discussions. Outside of the dedicated tracks, residential and commercial companies were able to network and share information during the rest of Securing New Ground.”
