EVENT’S NEWSLETTER JANUARY 2017 EDITION
INTRODUCING ME3S With several weeks left before the 1st edition of Major Events Safety & Security Summit (ME3S) 2017, it gives us great pleasure to keep you updated with event developments and bring you regional industry insights through this event newsletter. Major events play a signiﬁcant role in the development of every city by elevating the happiness index through public entertainment, fuelling a sense of community and providing opportunities for employment and revenue-generation. But at the same time, these events pose major challenges in terms of public safety. Law enforcement authorities have to plan extensively in order to ensure an atmosphere of security as well as hospitality. To address these speciﬁc challenges, Reed Exhibitions in collaboration with Major Events International (MEI) are organizing 1st of its kind summit, Major Events Safety & Security Summit (ME3S), the world’s specialized event covering implications of security for major events and all crowded places, at the Soﬁtel Dubai The Palm Resort, from 25-27 April 2017. In today’s day and age, planning for major events (such as the Olympic Games, FIFA World Cup, World Expo, to name a few …) requires as much attention to security as it does to trafﬁc and crowd control. There is a heightened awareness that these events can be potentially vulnerable, not only from premeditated attacks but also for petty crimes. As such, multiple federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, public organizations and private sectors need to collaborate for a safe, successful event, while community policing strategies must be initiated to bring an added layer of security.
THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES an iconic Role Model
The United Arab Emirates has set a benchmark in becoming the business & leisure destination of choice and supporting the region’s long-term growth strategy of moving the economy beyond oil - through various large-scale developments such as Saadiyat Island Cultural District, Yas Island, Meydan One, Jumeirah Central, Dubai Parks & Resorts and Al Maktoum Airport expansion, to name a few. Among other regional events lined up for the year include Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) World Championship in Doha, World Government Summit in Dubai, Formula 1 Grand Prix, Islamic Solidarity Games in Baku and Expo 2017 in Astana, and 2019 Special Olympics World Games, the region’s ﬁrst sporting event for athletes with special needs and disabilities to be held in Abu Dhabi The GCC Olympic Games planned to be hosted in Kuwait in 2019 and the Asian Football Cup which will be played in the UAE in 2019 are forthcoming events that pose similar challenges. Dubai hosts upwards of 500 events annually which attract local, national, regional and international audiences and the Expo 2020 is an opportunity to be at the forefront under the leadership of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and ruler of Dubai. Expo 2020 will inject $40 billion into the economy, leading to the creation of 277,000 jobs and welcoming more than 25 million international visitors within 6 months. Source: The Report: Dubai 2014. Considering the increasingly volatile safety and security conditions worldwide and in the region, government safety and security departments and agencies, like Dubai Police, have been strongly committed to increasing awareness, implementing new regulations and encouraging investment in technical solutions to ensure maximum visitors’ safety and security, while optimizing operational functions.

AZERBAIJAN the country has been the worldâ€™s fastest economy in recent years mainly due to its oil and gas development and the liberalisation of its trade system.
This status was perhaps solidified with the recent announcement that the nation's capital Baku is to be one of the hosts of the 2020 UEFA European Championships, but that is just one of many key events that will be taking place in Azerbaijan in the coming years, each of which will bring new buildings, structures and visitors to the country as per the below list:
Azerbaijan Islamic Solidarity Games Operations Committee (AISGOC): The Islamic Solidarity Games is a multinational, multi-sport event held by the Islamic Solidarity Sports Federation (ISSF). The 4th Islamic Solidarity Games in Baku next year will bring Islamic countries together, attracting young people vand encouraging solidarity between them.
FORMULA ONE’S NEWEST VENUE Situated on the western edge of the Caspian Sea, Azerbaijanís capital enjoys an original and unique appearance that seamlessly blends the ancient with the modern - factors which have contributed to some nicknaming the city “The Paris of the East”. Hosting a round of the FIA Formula One World Championship - the 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe on June 17-19 - is another sign of Bakus’ emergence as a major sporting destination. The Baku City Circuit is a motor racing circuit in Baku, Azerbaijan constructed near Baku Boulevard. It hosted the 2016 European Grand Prix and its support events. Family friendly, interactive and culturally diverse entertainment programmes have been developed for all visitors to Baku during the 2016 F1 Grand Prix of Europe.
