FireWatch Residential User Conference – Sept. 11 + 12

Booking is now open! We look forward to welcoming all our clients to our annual residential FireWatch User Conference in Edinburgh.

The Future of Organisational Intelligence

At this year’s conference, we will demonstrate and discuss the transformative impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on fire and rescue operations, exploring a future where technology and human expertise can combine to create more efficient and effective resource planning and emergency response. As we take advantage of the latest Microsoft Azure Cloud Services and leverage its rich and integrated data across resource management, prevention and protection, our FRS systems can further drive efficiencies and reduce risk for fire & rescue and the public.

Some of the areas that will be covered at this year’s event:

  • The continued evolution of FireWatch as a Cloud SaaS platform integrated with the latest Microsoft Azure Services
  • An early preview of our new AI-driven chat functionality and how this will transform the way users can interact with the system and data
  • Our latest Microsoft 365 integrations, including automated user account creation and updates with Microsoft Entra (formerly Active Directory), as well as SharePoint, Calendar, and To Do/Task lists
  • New Working Time Directive (WTD) workflow and dashboard-based monitoring
  • Configurable rest and ‘periods of working’ rules in the self-rostering planners
  • Other new features – to be announced!
  • An update on our roadmap and forthcoming development plans, including our new reporting service implementation
The Venue

The event will take place at Norton House Hotel and Spa, Edinburgh, set within beautiful grounds on the city’s outskirts. We will host FRSs from across the UK in the Garden Rooms – a self-contained meeting centre with a private break-out area and outdoor terrace. The location is a short taxi journey from Edinburgh Airport and train stations. If travelling by car, free parking is also available on-site.

The Package

FireWatch user conference bookings are based on a standard 24-hour delegate rate @£335pp plus vat, including a 3-course formal dinner, overnight accommodation (on Wed., Sept. 11), a working/buffet lunch (on Thur., Sept. 12) and tea/coffee, biscuits, snacks and refreshments provided during the event, and use of the hotel gym, pool and spa facilities*.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Note: This event is strictly for current fire & rescue clients and is by invitation only.  A full agenda will be circulated in due course.

Additional Night/Private Room Booking

If travelling the day before the conference, the hotel is holding a limited allocation of rooms that can be booked for an additional night’s stay (on Tue., Sept. 10). NB: These must be booked and paid for separately/direct by calling 0131 333 1275/option 5 to speak directly to the hotel reservations team and quote ‘Info110924’. The rate is £255 pp BB (+VAT), single occupancy, and payable directly to the hotel.

There is a wide range of alternative hotels nearby with rooms at competitive rates. We advise you to book early due to the high demand for hotel bedrooms in Edinburgh during September.
