As I look towards a new year and decade, the successes of 2019 are fresh in my mind. It has been a busy year, with notable milestones (!) that have set us up well for 2020.
The UK’s Innovation Hub
Our new UK office and Innovation Hub will enable Milestone to achieve ambitious goals over the next few years: to further build our partner network, training consultants in emerging trends and providing valuable learning experiences for the community, to help clients and prospects better understand the value of Milestone’s open platform.
Our Continuous Professional Development courses also have a dedicated space within the office, to create engaging and interactive course content. We offer a range of classes that cover breaking developments and best-in-class thinking within the industry, such as cybersecurity and metadata.
Market-leading events in Northern Europe
The launch of the Innovation Hub has been complemented by Milestone’s 2019 events, specifically the Power of Video in the UK and Sweden, and a Milestone Platinum Dinner that was held in London. ‘Power of Video’ saw leaders from retail, transport, logistics and city management discuss their video-empowered future, where organisations gain a powerful way to ensure public safety, grow business, improve customer experience and boost operational efficiencies.
Meanwhile, the Platinum Dinner offered the opportunity to network and discover the latest trends impacting video surveillance: Aggregation, Automation and Augmentation.
All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of Milestone’s teams across Northern Europe. They have been working hard behind the scenes to drive growth in EMEA through end-user and consultant engagement, supporting Milestone resellers.
Looking to 2020
This brings us to 2020. A year to build on the momentum generated in 2019. MIPS 2020, Milestone Systems’ prestigious annual event, will focus on ‘The Power of Open’ and the opportunities enabled by the Milestone video management software open platform.
We will continue to be a consistent presence in the security industry, leading the way through our solutions, thought leadership, marketing, community relationships and events. 2020 will be a monumental year for Milestone and its Partners!
