Public Venue & Soft Target Security Summit 2017

Delivering advanced safety and security strategies while ensuring a positive customer experience

The recent international terror attacks and the need for increased vigilance in a heightened security operating environment has prompted an urgent call to action from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Australia’s Strategy for Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism is a new national strategy to tackle the growing use of vehicles as weapons by terrorists, and places the responsibility for owners and operators to assess the vulnerability of their sites and protect it against a potential terrorist attack.

Co-located with the 2nd Annual Stadium & Arena Congress, this event will draw on strategies in the nation-wide toolkit will also be explored through key case studies from Australia's key stakeholders in law enforcement, counter terrorism, venue management and transport.

The Summit will bring together Heads of Security, Safety and Risk to hear:


The latest counter terrorism updates from Senior police representatives from QLD, NSW and VIC


Featured case studies from: Commonwealth Games 2018, Vivid 2017, Australian Football League, Marriott Hotels, MCG, SCG and more


Perspectives from the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) and the Australian Federal Police (AFP)
