Prioritising event security in 2021
September, the government announced that there will be a further six month hiatus before venues, stadia and arenas can fully open their doors to the public.
In light of this, there has never been a better time to thoroughly examine safety and security protocols, implement new technology and revise the risk management strategies needed to securely open up the events industry again in 2021.
Some of these key security questions and relevant issues were discussed in length at the CTB365 ‘Event Management Security’ online interactive event on 8 October.
We were proud to invite Figen Murray, mother of Martyn Hett, and former National Counter Terrorism Coordinator Nick Aldworth to discuss the progress being made with Martyn’s Law, something that the whole industry agrees needs implementing. We also heard from Rick Mounfield, chief executive of the Security Institute, and Paul Jeffrey, chairman of the Perimeter Security Suppliers Association, amongst others.
If you missed the event, I strongly encourage you to visit the CTB365 platform to watch it on demand.
