Relaunched ‘Manchester Security’ event for end users scheduled to run on 29 September

The all-new relaunched ‘Manchester Security’ event will be returning to the city on Thursday 29 September with the designated venue being St Ann’s Church, St Ann’s Street, Manchester M2 7LF.

A changed format for the popular gathering will encompass an informative breakfast seminar opened by Greater Manchester Police’s Assistant Chief Constable Garry Shewan QPM and addressed by senior police and security business sector professionals.

The key aim of the event is to support businesses in the North West by providing vital information that will help them protect their people and property from crime and acts of terrorism.

Paul King, chairman of ‘Manchester Security’ organiser the Manchester City Centre Crime Prevention Panel, commented: “This event is a ‘must attend’ for anyone concerned about security, and will address current issues surrounding terrorism. It’s specifically designed to provide advice on maximising vigilance, mitigating risks and taking all appropriate actions in the event of any potential incident.”

‘Manchester Security’ is free to attend and organised by Manchester City Centre Crime Prevention Panel with the support of Greater Manchester Police, Manchester City Council and Atmaana Business Consulting.

SelectaDNA and GJD are sponsoring the event. Their crime prevention products for end users will be on display during the course of the morning.

Doors open at 8.00 am. Refreshments and breakfast snacks will be provided, and there’ll be plenty of opportunities for networking both before and after the event (which is due to end at around 11.00 am).
