Organizers of the International Live Music Conference (ILMC) have today announced the second edition of the Event Safety & Security Summit (E3S), a one-day meeting that brings together leading international venue, festival, touring, sport and security professionals. Following last year’s sold out first edition, the Oct. 30 event will take place at a new venue this year, Congress Centre in central London, with an increased capacity for 400 delegates.

“Last year’s E3S was just intended as a one-off, but after extremely positive
feedback from attendees, we’re going to run a second meeting with space to accommodate extra demand,” says ILMC head Greg Parmley.


E3S is produced in close collaboration with the European Arenas Association (EAA), the UK’s National Arenas Association (NAA) and Association of Event Venues (AEV), with input from leading live event security companies, theatre and festival organizations.  E3S aims to foster best practice and the sharing of information, standards and initiatives across the live events industry with a mix of panel and roundtable discussions, while security experts and service providers present the latest relevant concepts and tools.

The full agenda for E3S will be published in August, and full event and contact information is online at
