More than 100 technicians and salespeople attended the seminar.

Global Ocean Security Technologies, a manufacturer of marine security, tracking, monitoring and video surveillance systems, held its annual dealer training seminar on August 3 at the Bahia Mar Hotel in Fort Lauderdale.

Attendance surpassed the 100-person mark with marine technicians and sales personnel learning about new products, technological updates, sales tools and an installation overview of the GOST line of equipment.

Company executives emphasized to its audience that it is listening to them. Product innovations were implemented based on feedback, including a redesigned Universal Control Unit that is now compatible for all GOST’s product add-ons and accessories. Attendees received information about the Apparition, Nav-tracker, Watch HD XVR camera system and Cloak DNA marker with an overview of sensor and sound-defense technology. They also got a preview of a mobile app that GOST will launch in 2019.

Additionally, product specialist Neil Clouse was recognized as the 2018 GOST Employee of the Year.

“For this year’s seminar, we really enhanced our presentation from the ground up to make it as valuable as possible for the technicians and salespeople that take the time to learn more about our evolving product line,” said Jay Keenan, president/CEO of GOST, in a statement.

Keenan added that ever-increasing maritime security demands have prompted the company to design and manufacture products that are on “the cutting edge” of security.
