Inspired by Figen’s Journey – the experiences of Figen Murray – whose son was killed in the Manchester Arena Terrorist attack, ICC Wales recognised a responsibility to their industry colleagues and commenced work on the ‘Protect Duty Report’. A range of stakeholders (including security and counter terrorism experts) were engaged to create a working document educating and informing the UK events industry about how these changes will impact their events.
ICCA President, Marta Gomes: “The ICC Wales entry won because the ‘Protect Duty Report’ is a really interesting and important story. It’s not just about marketing a destination, but about improving security in convention centres. It is easily adaptable by others too, and as the Best Marketing Award winners, it will have an even wider impact on improving security in all venues, and protecting people who use them for work and for leisure.”
