ICC Wales explores industry research about safety and security
A transformation in the way the events industry thinks about safety and security.
New legislation from the UK government is set to transform the way the events industry thinks about safety and security. Explored in a new report by conference venue ICC Wales, the Protect Duty legislation has implications for everyone planning events in the UK. The legislation, also known as Martyn’s Law, is a result of tireless campaigning by Figen Murray, OBE, the mother of Martyn Hett, who was killed in the Manchester Arena terrorist attack in 2017.
ICC Wales will explore the legislation and how event planners and venues can prepare for it in a press conference at IMEX on Wednesday, 1 June. Danielle Bounds, sales director, will take event organisers through the findings and provide a starting point for education and awareness, including ways in which venues and event planners around the world can implement and update their own security strategies in line with the proposed legislation.
Copies of the report are available for download on the ICC Wales website and by visiting the centre’s stand at IMEX in Frankfurt.
