Security experts will discuss some of the implications of the risks of terrorism and ways to plan for large scale events putting public safety first and foremost.
About the seminar:
Major and mega events have always been vulnerable to a range of risk, security and safety issues. However, in the current environment, the risk of terrorism emerges as one of the most urgent and compelling issues facing event managers and practitioners on a daily basis.
This seminar explores issues and challenges related to the threat of terrorism and the need for industry practitioners to be aware of the implications of those threats, and respond accordingly. It has been designed for industry practitioners, academics, teachers, and students to exchange ideas and benefit from presentations delivered by experts in the fields of terrorism and counter terrorism. It also provides the opportunity for discussions and networking following the formal presentations.
