THE BAFE Fire Safety Register has been confirmed as the headline sponsor of the Fire and Security Matters Awards 2024. BAFE has been the trusted independent register of quality fire safety organisations for the UK since 1984 and this announcement marks a key part of its 40th Anniversary celebrations.
Organised by Western Business Media and the publisher’s market-leading titles Fire Safety Matters and Security Matters, the Fire and Security Matters Awards are now in their third year and celebrate innovation and significant achievements in the fire and security sectors. This remit absolutely aligns with BAFE’s passion for promoting quality and competence within the fire sector.
The Fire and Security Matters Awards elicited upwards of 280 entries last year and a sold-out attendance of 640 guests for the ceremony.
The Fire and Security Matters Awards 2024 will take place at the Coventry Building Society Arena on 12 June. That’s the same day and location as the Fire Safety Matters Live one-day conference and exhibition and an all-new BAFE conference, with the first edition of the Security Matters Live conference and exhibition running on 13 June (again at the same venue).
Speaking about the announcement of BAFE becoming headline sponsor of the Fire and Security Matters Awards, BAFE Group managing director Justin Maltby-Smith stated: “The BAFE Fire Safety Register is pleased to be the headline sponsor of the Fire and Security Matters Awards 2024. This will form part of several events planned to celebrate and promote BAFE throughout its 40th Anniversary year. We look forward to working with Western Business Media in celebrating key achievements in the fire and security sectors, while in parallel celebrating our own milestone year in operation.”
Western Business Media’s CEO Mark Sennett (the founder of Fire Safety Matters magazine) responded: “We are proud to confirm BAFE as our new headline sponsor for the Fire and Security Matters Awards. These awards continue to capture the imagination of the fire and security sectors with a record number of entries and tickets selling out in record time last year. BAFE and the Fire and Security Matters Awards share the same core value of wanting to shine a light on – and celebrate – excellence and quality in these sectors.”
Sennett continued: “We are truly honoured that BAFE is trusting us to be a core element of its 40th Anniversary celebrations by being the main sponsor of these awards and hosting its first-ever conference with us on the same day. We’re extremely proud to support BAFE’s key work in the sector and cannot wait to help the organisation celebrate 40 years of making a tangible difference.”
