2017 SIA Stakeholder Conference to run under banner of ‘Partnership Working’

On Tuesday 14 March, the Security Industry Authority (SIA) will be holding its 2017 Stakeholder Conference at the Hallam Conference Centre in London. The focus for the event is on ‘Partnership Working’. During the day, the SIA’s chair Elizabeth France CBE and CEO Alan Clamp will set out the Regulator’s key priorities for the coming year.

“The theme for the day is working in partnership to protect the public,” stated Alan Clamp. “In addition to a series of presentations, we will also be running Workshops throughout the day. These are important because the feedback we derive will inform the future of regulation and the work we do.”

Clamp continued: “We know that networking is important to the industry so we’ve made extra time for everyone to meet each other. We’ve also reduced the delegate fee this year to try and make it easier for members of the industry to come along and share their views with us. Ultimately, this is a chance for the SIA and the industry to come together to discuss how we can do things better together.”

During the conference, the SIA will hold three discussion Forums and Workshops. They will focus squarely on the following topics:

Taking Responsibility for Standards

*Who has responsibility for standards?

*How do high standards afford today’s businesses competitive advantage?

Influencing Buyer Behaviour

*How can buyers’ recognition of high quality be encouraged?

*What’s the role of the SIA?

*What should the private security industry do?

Developing Regulation in Partnership

*How can regulation be improved to help good businesses?

*What should the SIA focus on?
