Manchester in spring

The free event arranged by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), ‘Manchester Security’, is set to return this spring.

Themed as ‘Manchester 2013: Securing the Future’, the event aims to educate and inform businesses in the north west, bringing them together with local police forces to discuss the security challenges faced by the region.

It will run on Wednesday, March 20, at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester city centre, and welcomes back speakers from last year, as well as some new faces, including Deputy Chief Constable, Ian Hopkins, who will formally open the event.

Returning to the event in 2013 is Chief Supt Stuart Ellison of Greater Manchester Police, who spoke on Manchester’s night-time economy. This year, he will be speaking on the subject of integrated partnership working, and what this means for policing Manchester city centre. Also speaking at this year’s event will be Chief Supt John O’Hare, whose presentation will focus on policing a major event, with a specific emphasis on the recent TUC march.

The full speaker line-up is due to be confirmed over the coming weeks, with invitees to include Manchester’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Tony Lloyd.

Alongside the conference, an exhibition will showcase their products and services. Last year, over 250 delegates attended from both private and public sector organisations, including Morrisons, Selfridges and Manchester City Council.

Exhibition spaces can still be booked at a cost of £575 plu VAT. You can view videos of presentations from last year’s event at the BSIA’s YouTube channel.
