The desire to have great events and to make them safe is strong in Asia. Crowd management, risk assessment, counter terrorism, and crisis and emergency management are obligatory, crucial concerns for professionals who manage the security and safety of the patrons and spectators who enjoy their venues and events.
With cities in Asia planning more and more global-profile fantastic events, safety practices and records in Asian countries are capturing the world’s attention in the coming years. In response to this, Marcus Evans is proud to present the Public Venues & Events Safety & Security 2017 to be held on the 27th February – 1st March, 2017, in Singapore. The conference gives attendees the opportunity to connect with their industry colleagues and share knowledge in an interactive setting where experts will demonstrate their best practices test attendees’ readiness and preparation on the spot.
