Event Safety & Security Summit (E3S) agenda goes live

The provisional agenda for the Event Safety & Security Summit (E3S) has been revealed. Mixing detailed presentations and illuminating panels led by the finest minds in the business, it’s shaping up to be an unmissable day…


With input and active involvement from renowned specialists in each field, the series of dedicated presentations cover a range of topics from behavioural detection and crowd dynamics to search and screening and advances in festival security.


Meanwhile, the four key E3S panels run chronologically through an event’s security efforts. The day kicks off with The 3 Ps: Preparation, Planning & Prevention which considers terror methodologies, variation in protocols, communication channels and risk assessment.


Then, Rings of Steel: Securing Your Event looks at practical operational measures to secure events, new available methods and technology, security perimeters, and internal security measures.



In the afternoon, The 3 Rs: Reaction, Response & Recovery examines the aftermath of an event, timeline for recovery, emergency planning exercises and questions whether there is a shortage of trained personnel and resources.


And finally, The Show Goes On: Moving Forward Together asks what sort of future venues and event organisers should be preparing for, who’s going to pay for it, and what shape a collective industry response might take.


Presenters and chairs who’ve stepped up to drive E3S forward include: Simon Ancliffe (Movement Strategies), Roger Gomm (Roger Gomm), Chris Kemp (MOM Consultancy), Ian Kerr (ID Resilience), John Langford (The O2 Arena), Carl A H Martin (cahm.uk) and Andy Palmer (Gatwick Airport).
