Organisers of the Event Safety & Security Summit (E3S) have revealed the agenda for the second edition of the conference, more than doubling the number of discussion topics and presentations from last year’s debut.

The invitation-only event takes place on 30 October at the Congress Centre in central London, with over 400 delegates expected to attend, and brings together leading international venue, festival, touring, sport and security professionals.

Highlights from the 2018 agenda include:

Other panels focus on topics including flexible solutions to in-work training, while presentation topics include the threat to crowded spaces, prioritising risk to events, integrated safety and security planning, the crowd as participatory threat sensors, working with group psychology in emergencies, trends in behavioural detection and the revolution in event incident logging.

“This year’s agenda builds substantially on last year’s sold-out event,” says ILMC head and E3S organiser Greg Parmley. “With 20 topics announced and more to come over the coming weeks, E3S sits at the centre of where safety, security and live events intersect.”

E3S is produced in close collaboration with the MOM Consultancy, European Arenas Association (EAA), National Arenas Association (NAA) and Association of Event Venues (AEV), with input from leading live event security companies, theatre and festival organisations.

The full agenda, and further event information can be viewed online at www.e3s.world.
