E3S topics doubled

18 September 2018

THE FOLLOW-up to last year’s inaugural Event Safety & Security Summit (E3S) will feature more than twice
as many topics and presentations, say organisers.

Taking place on 30 October at the Congress Centre in London, E3S will feature more than 25 speakers, including deputy assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Lucy D’Orsi and Manchester Arena inquiry head Lord Kerslake.

More than 400 delegates are expected at the one-day meeting, which is organised by the team behind the International Live Music Conference (ILMC) in conjunction with MOM Consultancy and the European Arenas Association.

Kerslake is expected to reveal key findings and recommendations from the independent enquiry into the 2017 arena tragedy. Conference sessions include Protecting the Future of Live Events, and Learning Transferrable Lessons, a look at how the live music industry can learn from events such as the World Cup and state visits by foreign dignitaries.

“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,” says ILMC head and E3S organiser Greg Parmley.
