International Crowd Safety Conference

ICSC LOGO

Planning for the unexpected at all stages of events

The 2nd Annual International Crowd Safety Conference (ICSC) will take place alongside International Security Expo (ISE) 2018 on the 28-29 November.

Across the world in the crowd safety industry there is an acceptance that each and every event regardless of type will share similar characteristics. One of the most prominent is the different stages of these events. All events have an arrival point, last mile or walk up, ingress point, circulation phase, egress phase and a departure/dispersal phase. History has proven that incidents lay no preference to which stage our events are currently operating at and therefore we must plan carefully for emergencies at all of these stages. 

The International Crowd Safety Conference 2018 will aim to deliver the latest thinking on these areas and more from respected industry professionals. This is shaping up to be the worlds leading event solely dedicated to the Crowd Safety Industry and we are looking forward to once again welcoming you as our guests!

    A key question every event organiser and those delivering services should ask themselves is; ‘would your event plan and response to more serious crowd safety related incidents, stand up to independent scrutiny, litigation or survive an inquest’? Sol deals with the aftermath of events that go wrong and cause harm to members of the public and will discuss how good event planning, documentation and well managed delivery processes can make a positive difference in civil litigation claims?

    We need to lower the cost of security service, while at the same time enhance venue/event safety as we face ever increasing concerns about the soft targets so many events and venues really are.

    In this talk we’ll discuss the opportunity to engage the crowd in keeping the crowd safe, by using digital technologies to recruit their eyes and ears as information sources for our stretched security teams.

    The aggregate perspectives of the crowd could the early warning you’ll need to stop the next terror attack, or just enhance the fan enjoyment through a safer venue and event experience.

    A statement so often heard when crowds do the ‘unexpected’ when actually, what they did was entirely predictable. This 40 minute session is designed to demonstrate how the better understanding of basic psychology and heuristics can lead us to be better crowd managers and write better plans to keep people safe.

    In examining this from a crowded places perspective we tend to consider dynamics-related issues and traditionally-accepted geographically complex events, be they single site or multi-site. This session will investigate some of the additional layers that contribute to complexity, including command and control, integration and interoperability, management structures, historical inertia, cultural issues, audience profile and threat and risk perspectives. Balanced against this, it will explore the growing role for the crowd safety manager and the means by which crowd management planning might identify and manage such complexity.
