'Developing Resilience for the Protection of Cultural Venues'
16th - 17th October 2024
Redworth Hall Hotel, County Durham

The IAASF Committee are excited to announce the IAASF Annual Conference is returning to Redworth Hall Hotel, Country Durham this October. Following the excellent feedback we received from IAASF 2023, we are delighted to return to the beautiful 17th-century Jacobean Hall located in the North East of England.


For this year’s event, we want to explore the development of resilience in the cultural sector and how it impacts infrastructure, transportation, training, operational protection, protesters and other activities. The more we can address resilience in the cultural heritage sectors, the more robust our protective approach will be to ensure cultural assets are around for future generations.


Therefore, by developing resilience after experiencing war, conflicts and a global pandemic, we can continue to protect cultural venues for future generations through shared learning, networking and discovering the latest innovations in security.

Call for Speakers

The IAASF draws experts from around the world involved in cultural protection to share their experiences and knowledge with others in the hope that we can collectively take steps to protect our cultural heritage for future generations. The conference has a security and safety theme but that does not mean we are only looking for specialists in those areas. Find out more and how to submit an application via the button below.
