Allegion UK Offers New Meeting Hub facility for Building & Architectural Industry Professionals

Allegion UK, global pioneers of door hardware plan to use their central Birmingham HQ as an industry meeting hub for door, building and architectural professionals.

Based in Aston, Birmingham, the offices house what they call their ‘Security and Safety Learning Centre’. Capable of holding up to 24 people at any given time in the meeting space, the aim is for the centre to be used as a hub for learning and discussion. 

Launched in October shortly after relocating from Walsall, the Centre has already held a function for industry body the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers, and the Door Hardware Federation has chosen the venue for an event in January. Plans are now in place to host more regular networking events, with the aim of improving dialogue amongst industry professionals.

The Centre was developed after Allegion recognised that many of their customers and trade partners would benefit from a centrally located and serviced meeting area to discuss industry issues.

“Choosing Birmingham as our UK headquarters was a strategic decision meant to help unite professionals working within the industry,” said Suzanne Taylor-Turnbull, Allegion marketing, communications & brand leader in the EMEIA region. “The central location is key for us to bring together industry leaders and businesses for regular networking events, and by doing so we’ll be improving the relations between vendors, users and suppliers. It’s our hope that collaboration and knowledge across the industry improves overall, in turn helping to ensure the safety and security of building occupants.”

The Security and Safety Learning Centre offers a suite of around-the-doorway safety and security solutions set out by market sector, and contains working models of Allegion’s latest innovations and most successful products. Catering can be arranged for guests wishing to host a meeting or event.
