The Event Safety & Security Summit (E3S), the ILMC’s one-day meeting dedicated to security in the live events sector, returns for its third edition this autumn.

E3S launched in 2017, moving from the Intercontinental hotel at the O2 to London’s Congress Centre for its successful second outing the following year. E3S 2019 will take place on 8 October, again at the Congress Centre, and will feature a range of practical workshop-style sessions, quick-fire presentations, keynotes and conference panels.

The E3S 2019 agenda will be published in the coming months, and the event is welcoming input on speakers and topics that should be covered. “Over the coming weeks, the ILMC and E3S teams will be working hard on the conference agenda, and we’re keen to hear from you,” say organisers. “Is there a good topic, speaker, presentation or workshop you would like to see? Or perhaps you or a colleague would like to get involved? If so, please email e3s@ilmc.com.”

E3S welcomes delegates from companies including AEG Worldwide, BBC, England & Wales Cricket, Feld Entertainment, Festival Republic, FKP Scorpio, Gatwick Airport, G4S, Live Nation, Manchester Arena, NEC Group, Roskilde Festival, Showsec International, the O2, the Walt Disney Company, Wembley Stadium and WWE.

E3S 2019 will invite leading industry figures, security experts and authorities to contribute to an open dialogue on a variety of related topics

It is organised by the International Live Music Conference (ILMC) in close collaboration with the European Arena Association, the UK’s National Arena Association and other leading theatre and venue organisations and security companies.

The format of E3S 2019 will mix practical presentations from security experts and showcase the latest concepts and tools to protect audiences, staff and infrastructure, while panel discussions will invite leading industry figures, security experts and authorities to contribute to an open dialogue on a variety of related topics.

A limited number of super discounted earlybird passes are available for the event, priced at £125 (including VAT). For more information, or to buy tickets, visit www.e3s.world.
