The ILS Duty of Care Pavilion has been developed to offer security managers, HR leaders, programming and operational staff a dedicated space to come together and discuss the challenges, solutions and the future of meeting integrated duty of care obligations and effectively supporting staff to work in challenging environments.

The ILS Duty of Care pavilion will consider topics including safety and security, safeguarding / PSEA, wellbeing, cyber risk, travel and more. The pavilion will be structured to include:

  • An exhibition area; featuring exhibits from leading duty of care suppliers, coordinating bodies and service providers to the sector.
  • GISF (the Global Interagency Security Forum) will host a collaborative networking and peer support space, providing access to thought leaders and consultants who are pushing forward the duty of care agenda in the sector.
  • A large conference space jointly curated by ILS and GISF. This ‘conference within a conference’ will offer a thought provoking, educational and inspiring agenda of discussion panels, workshops and case studies devoted to the sharing of knowledge, experience and good practice.
