Protecting the safety and security of delegates attending business meetings and events will be the focus at the Meetings Industry Association’s (mia) latest event.
Taking place in October at Warwick Conferences, the mia’s Safety and Security Summit will explore the current and potential threats being faced by the sector and how technology and innovation can help create safer environments for all.
Ahead of the introduction of the Protect Duty in early 2023, ICC Wales’ Danielle Bounds will discuss the legislative obligations that have been designed to improve the safety and security of both staff and visitors in meeting and event spaces.
Representatives from ACC Liverpool, NEC Group, and Caffeine&Machine will share their inspiring venue safety strategies while innovative grant-funded Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) technologies emerging from the likes of Iconal and Metrasens to support safety across the sector, will be revealed.
Kerrin MacPhie, Chief Executive of the mia, said: “As the capabilities and tactics of terrorists and criminals continue to evolve and the Protect Duty is being introduced next year, there is a need to discuss the current and potential threats being faced by the business meetings and events sector.”
