Event Overview

Crisis Management and Preparedness Conference - Mitigating risks, preparing for crisis

The Middle East region has witnessed rapid urbanisation, with a large influx of expatriate workforce and growing tourist numbers. Being a hub for major events, large shopping centres, tall skyscrapers and amusement parks, makes it vulnerable to crisis and disaster situations.

These circumstances demand better tools, state of the art technologies and expertise in fire safety, emergency response, crisis management and disaster preparedness.

The Crisis Management and Preparedness Conference will bring industry experts and relevant stakeholders to address challenges pertaining to Crisis Detection and Suppression, Emergency Response Planning, Role of Social Media, Crowd Management, Evacuation and City Resilience.

The speakers will discuss and share ideas, best practices, techniques, and technologies in crisis management and emergency response. The event will discuss topics such as crowd modelling simulation, emergency evacuation tools, advanced early detection and warning systems, firefighting products and gear.
