Bookings now open for The Security Institute’s tenth Annual Conference in London

The Security Institute’s deputy chairman Andrew Nicholls has unveiled plans for the organisation’s tenth Annual Conference, which is due to be held on Tuesday 3 October in central London.

Building on the sell-out success of the 2016 event, the Institute has moved the venue for this year with the 2017 gathering taking place at The Prince Consort Rooms at Armoury House in the City of London, the prestigious home of the oldest regiment in the British Army. This magnificent Georgian house is set in a five-acre garden hidden away in a quiet location just a couple of minutes’ walk from Moorgate and plays host to a state-of-the-art £6.5 million conference facility.

Professor Martin Gill CSyP FSyI is returning as conference chairman, with this year’s event themed around the subject of ‘Security Culture in a World of Emerging Threats’.

Conference speakers confirmed thus far include former Metropolitan Police Service Commissioner Lord John Stevens QPM KStJ DL FRSA, City of London Police Commissioner Ian Dyson QPM, Allan Burnett QPM FSyI (operations director at SecuriGroup), Peter Spindler (company director at Peter Spindler Associates LLP), Dr Rachel Carter MSyI (managing director of Carter Insurance Innovations), Baroness Ruth Henig CBE (president of The Security Institute), Dr Andrew Glazzard OBE (director of national security and resilience at RUSI) and Matthew Drew MSyI, group security director for Rolls-Royce plc.

The Institute welcomes both members and non-members to its annual conference. Anyone booking in July can benefit from early bird booking fees by visiting www.security-institute.org. Ticket prices have been held at the 2016 rates. The ticket cost includes refreshments on arrival and throughout the conference as well as a buffet luncheon with networking drinks once the event concludes.
