Event Overview

Fire Protection & Safety in Tunnels Tuesday 17th – Wednesday 18th November 2009 Newport Bay Club Hotel, Disneyland Paris, France

There is a consensus in the tunnel industry that efficiency in road and rail networks would be greatly increased if cross-border tunnel fire and safety standards were unified. However until this is achieved the industry has to ensure that all products and services meet individual country standards, which can be challenging.

The Fire Protection and Safety in Tunnels conference, to be held in Paris, 17-18 November 2009, will help you to comply with industry safety standards, optimise your risk management and achieve safety excellence.

This exceptional conference brings together road and rail tunnel professionals under one roof to discuss technological solutions to the problems of tunnel safety. And with road and rail tailored streams, individual legislation and issues relating to these separate areas can be discussed in-depth. We have enlisted the help of some of the leading figures in tunnel safety and operation to help you through these complex issues.

Tunnel safety experts speaking include:

  • Ian Prosser, HM Chief Inspector of Railways & Director, Railway Safety, Office of Rail Regulation (UK)
  • Hans-Peter Vetsch, Head of Rail Operations, Alptransit AG (Switzerland)
  • Arnaud Marchais, Head of Fire Safety, RATP (France)
  • Ahmet Ulas Aygün, Field Engineer, Avrasya Subway Group (Turkey)
  • Walter Steiner, Tunnel Manager, Gotthard-Strassentunnel (Switzerland)
  • Chris Bowley, Tunnel Safety Engineer, Le Crossing Co. Ltd. (UK)

National Security & Resilience Conference 2016

Organisational security and resilience in today’s climate of extreme threats

National Security and Resilience combines national security needs with an in-depth understanding of the design and implementation of resilience solutions. London sits at the epicentre of knowledge and resilience and is recognised globally as a centre of excellence, notably in national security and resilience.

The NS&R Conference will take place on 8th-9th November in the heart of London, bringing together a wealth of expertise which will entertain, inform and expand understanding. The leading conference programme is matched by its exceptional cast of speakers from across government and industry for one of the best programmes discussing organisational security and resilience.

The importance of organisational resilience

Global turbulence is expected. Competition, instability and uncertainty are constants in a changing world. Organisations face an unprecedented and growing number of potential disruptions to the status quo and the best laid strategic plans. As history repeats itself, prominent organisations will fail unless modern risk management and governance models incorporate scalable resilience metrics.

To survive and prosper in this new environment of heightened uncertainty and change, organisations must move past traditional risk and governance models and focus instead on resilience. Resilience applies at all levels: national, regional, organisational and corporate.

The NS&R Conference will deliver the latest issues and threats facing government departments/agencies, corporations and businesses, and thought provoking discussions on strategies and innovations to ensure you and your organisation meet these changing challenges., Copyright © Notting Hill Media Limited 2000 - 2016, all rights reserved.
