Discover Major Events Safety & Security Summit (ME3S)

Reed Exhibitions, in collaboration with Major Events International (MEI), is launching the Major Events Safety & Security Summit

An exclusive “non-conference” business forum offering a unique “community experience” to:

  • Connect with your peers and potential partners or customers
  • Share industry trends, innovations, best practice and lessons-learned
  • Interact through roundtables, workshops and “closed-door” sessions
  • Gain market profile by contributing to discussions and interacting with your target customers

The innovative interactive summit is organised to enable international experts to network and share experience with regional stakeholders (major events organization committees,  sport venues’ and entertainment facilities’ developers and operators, government safety and security forces, tourism and sport authorities, consultants, specialized solutions & services providers …), providing exclusive networking opportunities and empowering attendees to identify potential partners through tailored matchmaking. With the Middle East & Central Asia countries hosting major international events and developing multiple iconic venues, this new Summit assumes importance as a unique opportunity sharing experience of both past lessons and best practice for the future.

Major themes of the summit:

  • Full lifecycle planning with implications for budgeting and procurement
  • Delivery of full spectrum capability and the need to integrate technologies into planning
  • The human dimension – what factors need to be considered to include training and legacy
  • Mission rehearsals and test events which brings all planning full circle





Network & build relationships with key international stakeholders

100+ Pre-selected Specialists & VIP


Share best practices, lessons learned & innovation with the experts

12+ Hours of Value Content


Identify regional business opportunities through tailored matchmaking

200+ Pre-arranged 1-2-1 Meetings

High profile events, attracting VIPs, sponsors, media and tourists result in crowded places from transportation hubs, venues, fan parks, shopping malls and entertainment centers. Given the international security situation, regional government entities are committed to deliver security by:

  • Increasing awareness of public and private event organisers
  • Working closely with international experts to develop a stronger legal framework
  • Encouraging private operators to invest in top-quality, field-proven technical solutions

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries have initiated a clear strategy to become the preeminent business & leisure destination, supporting a long-term growth vision of moving the economy beyond oil, by:

  • Hosting mega events such as Dubai Expo 2020 or FIFA World Cup 2022
  • Investing in large-scale iconic developments such as Saadiyat Island Cultural District or Dubai Theme Parks & Resorts

What they say!

  • Planning today for major events requires at least as much attention to Homeland Security issues as it does to traffic and crowd control. In addition, community policing strategies for partnership building and problem solving are essential. Collaboration is key between multiple federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, public organizations and private sector to produce safe, successful major special event.
    Meline Eolmezian-Soulie
    Group Exhibition Director – Security & Safety, Reed Exhibitions
  • We are excited to play a key role in this unique event. The format will be fully interactive with 1-2-1 meetings, roundtables, closed-door sessions and panel discussions distinguishing this Summit from any other event in the market.

  • I want to thank you for a very professional and well organized event. Since my arrival in the UAE I have been to several events hosted by an array of different organizers. This was hands down the most professional and well-organized event that I have been to. Bravo.

  • This was, hands down, the best event I have ever been to. The B2B sessions were masterfully targeted and very intimate, I appreciated the lean booths requiring a very minimal marketing investment, and there were very many interested buyers which is exactly what I had hoped for flying half way across the world to attend a summit.

  • The event provided us with a fantastic opportunity to meet with clients and prospects to discuss our major event security and risk advisory services. The unique programme includes round tables where we can share our past experiences and learn valuable lessons from others within the industry. Great networking too - to see old friends and meet new ones!
