Crisis Management in Tall Buildings Conference set to challenge current thinking

Thursday 21 May 2020 will see the Crisis Management in Tall Buildings Conference come to London alongside FIREX International at ExCeL. Recent high-profile events such as terrorist attacks, cyber hacks and drone scares have made the discipline of crisis management in tall buildings more relevant than ever. The conference will be chaired by Andy Baker, a highly experienced corporate security expert and former commander in the Metropolitan Police Service.

Highlights of the conference programme include a UK Government spokesperson commenting on building resilience, several Case Studies of crisis management procedures from iconic tall buildings in central London, a considered view from the insurance industry and a discussion of practical measures to implement crisis management in a tall building.

Speaking about the conference, Andy Baker commented: “This is a very timely meeting of tall building security colleagues from across the UK, Europe and the international arena. The increase in the size and complexity of tall buildings in city centres means that we must stay ahead of emerging threats such as drones and the daily challenges that may disrupt businesses.”
