Mahalo! The 2024 CP Conference is a success!

Our annual channel partner conference at the Renaissance Cincinnati downtown is a wrap for 2024! Over 150 attendees were treated to a unique and engaging celebration of Hawaiian culture on Monday evening. The event, featuring dinner, interactive dance, and hula lessons from Hawaiian Island Entertainment, LLC, added a truly memorable touch to our annual conference.

The 7th of May was dedicated to fostering connections and expanding networks. We offered an insightful tour of our cutting-edge facility and hosted a delightful luncheon and showcased 15 of their esteemed vendors' products in the Flat Iron Room.

The day concluded with a delicious dinner and a fascinating museum tour of Cincinnati’s beautiful historic rail station built in 1931, now called Cincinnati’s Museum Center. Our keynote speaker, Don Erickson, CEO of the Security Industry Association, discussed the profound impacts of emerging technologies such as AI, cloud, and IoT on the security industry.

A special thanks to March Networks for sponsoring our Tuesday cocktail reception and dinner!

The day after, the 8th of May, Hamilton President John Stroia started the day with a review of US market conditions and insight on the company’s key initiatives. CEO Stefan Syrén then gave the audience a glimpse into Gunnebo's future expansion plans in India with new plants in Halol and Greenville, SC. He highlighted key areas for improving energy consumption and reducing global climate impact across all business units.
