The 2021 Barnes Buchanan Conference, set for Feb. 4 and Feb. 5 in a virtual format, is now cancelled.

“After additional thought and consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Barnes Buchanan Conference,” the Barnes Association said. “Meeting virtually allows the opportunity to share content, but it is impossible to replicate the person-to-person networking and deal-making that is the hallmark of the conference.

Although the conference is cancelled, Barnes Association is still providing virtual content for its alarm industry and market overview.

“Even though we will not hold the Conference this year, Barnes Associates is still working on its annual Alarm Industry and Market Overview. This presentation, together with a 1-2 hour Mike Barnes' video, will be available through the conference sometime in March. We will follow-up with more details on how to access the video and written materials once they become available,” the Barnes Association said.

The 2022 Barnes Buchanan Conference is scheduled for Feb. 10-12 at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Fla.
