Tackling topics that matter

Our collaboration with Saudi Arabia’s security pioneers will result in an informative and forward-looking agenda, tackling the most pressing issues that need to be addressed.

Through a mixture of keynote speakers and expert-led panel discussions we’ll be covering sustainability, women in security, security training programmes and the evolution of smart cities. Our aim is to be at the forefront of advancing the security industry not just in Saudi Arabia but in the wider Middle East.

To do this we are developing an agenda and speaker list not to be missed, all with the help of our advisory board. Craig Ross, Senior Safety & Security Manager, Diriyah Gate Development Authority, who took part in one of our panel sessions at the 2023 event, said: “Events like the Security Middle East Conference are hugely important in developing our networks and sharing ideas on best practice.”
