Finalists announced in GSN’s 2012 awards program

In spite of unfortunate business interruptions caused by power outages, flooding, loss of Internet services and other damages inflicted on the Northeastern part of the country by Hurricane Sandy, Government Security News has announced finalists in all three broad categories of its 2012 Homeland Security Awards Program. 

The annual contest celebrates the public-private collaboration that makes up the nation’s homeland security apparatus by presenting awards to leading vendors of IT and physical security products and solutions, and to federal, state, county and municipal agencies for notable achievements in government programs, projects, strategies and initiatives. 

The winners’ trophies will be presented at the 2012 awards dinner, which will take place on the evening of Thursday, November 29, 2012 at the Grand Ballroom, L Street Concourse, of the Washington, DC Convention Center. Individual seats or a table for 10 can be reserved on the GSN Website or by contacting GSN Publisher Edward Tyler at 212-344-0759, ext. 2001 or by email at etyler@gsnmagazine.com

Discounted rooms for awards dinner attendees can be reserved at the Marriott Renaissance Downtown Hotel, which is across the street from the Convention Center, by going to the hotel’s Website and using the group discount code: smasmaa. 

According to GSN managing partner, Adrian Courtenay, the 2012 awards program has a record number of entries relating to new IT and physical security technologies, and to significant programs from government agencies at all levels to enhance security in a year that saw presidential elections, thwarting of terrorist plots and heroic federal, state and local emergency responses to a series of natural disasters that occurred throughout the year.
