The FIA Autumn Seminar on 14th & 15th October 2021:

At Whittlebury Hall, near Northampton, was the best-attended event for many years! It was a great opportunity to meet face-to-face, to renew acquaintances and enjoy in-person time together.

This year’s presentations included some departures from the norm, with focus on hot topics in our industry, including the challenges of installing Fibre to the Home, issues and benefits experienced with undersea cabling, and a fresh departure, an overview and demonstration of the use of drone technology in scouting and identifying suitable cable routes in various environments, both above and below ground, all kept the attendees both engaged and amused.

A special big Thank You to our sponsors for the event, Fujikura Europe Limited.

 A photo gallery of the event can be viewed here. 

Presentation slides can be found here.

FIA NEW Logo

 Fibreoptic Industry Association

The FIA logo and brand colours were nearly 30 years old and were appearing dated, so we decided it was time for a refresh. Hive Creative gave us several options and we finally agreed on the logo you see above and the colour palette seen here.

The new look was launched at the recent FIA Autumn Seminar.

We’ll soon add downloadable copies of versions of the logo to the FIA website but if you need a logo immediately, contact jane@fiasec.co.uk.
