Why You Should Attend

Public Venues and Events Safety and Security

Safety and Security in the Middle East has always been on a medium to high alert status. This is due to age old territorial fights and also due to more recent conflict in the region. Amongst all of this there are major developments in the events and the hospitality industry that is attracting tourists from all over the world to experience what the region has to offer.

 At the upcoming Public Venues and Events Safety and Security conference we will be gearing you up for the upcoming major events such as the Expo 2020, the FIFA world cup in 2022 and preparing civil security staff for any threats that may come their way. Here we will be examining the current state of security in the region and how it affects the overall security level of your event and public venues. We will be sharing unique cases studies on how to balance safety, risk and how to respond to emergency situations. Open discussions will focus on the current legislative changes like the Security of Sports Facilities and Events Federal Law and the Fire and Life Safety Codes. Key focus areas will cover crowd management and control to influence how your crowd will react in an emergency. Fire Safety measures will be discussed to curtail fires especially in high rise buildings. This conference will address terrorism and methods of how you can counter it and the various types of alert levels your country, event and public venue falls under.

 By attending this highly sought after conference you will be equipping yourself with methods of enhancing your customer experience, risks response plans and developing effective business continuity plans to handle risks if it does arise.
