April summit to focus on planning security at major events

Reed Exhibitions is teaming up with local company, Major Events International (MEI) to put together a summit for those involved in the security of major events.

The Major Events Safety & Security Summit, an event covering implications of security for major
events and all crowded places will be held at the Sofitel Dubai the Palm Resort, from 25-27 April 2017.

Planning for major events today requires as much attention to security as it does to traffic and crowd control. There is a heightened awareness that these events can be a target of premeditated attacks of a terrorist nature as well as petty crime.

The format of the summit will be based on an business networking format, offering a unique interactive platform to share and connect on key challenges & opportunities under the themes of crowd management, public safety & resilience.

Various representatives from key agencies such as Dubai Police, Interpol, Yas Marina Circuit, Dubai Parks and Resorts and Abu Dhabi Airports will be on hand to discuss their needs and requirements when planning for events going forward.
