ALARM Conference, Exhibition and Risk Awards 2022

Don't miss out on the first in-person National Conference in two years. Attendance at the Conference is free if you are an ALARM member!

The pandemic has been a catalyst for change. It has forced innovation, accelerated planned changes, highlighted inequalities, and elicited new shifts in thinking and working. What had seemed futuristic and sometimes out of reach just two years ago has emerged in our present and near future.

To reflect the transformed times in public services, the ALARM Conference of 2022 - an in-person three-day national event - is entitled The future is now.

We offer insight, information, and education on a breadth of topics that will feature in our immediate future, as well as the challenges that may be just around the corner.

With sessions on subjects from outwitting cyber criminals to managing demographic and neurodiversity risks and to impacts of extreme weather like subsidence and sustainability inbetween, we are sure there will be something to pique your interest, increase your knowledge and develop your professional standing, at the 2022 ALARM Conference.

Don't forget to save the dates - 3 to 5 July 2022, at the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel and the University of Manchester.

Conference highlights include:

The President's drinks on Sunday 3 July, which provides a much awaited occasion to meet again in-person, and for both new and established members to network in an informal setting.

Following the President's drinks, platinum sponsor Zurich Municipal will be hosting their annual dinner and drinks networking event at the Flight Club.

The Conference keynote kickstarts Monday's proceedings with a session from risk expert and leadership speaker Hélio Vogas, who is on a mission to help the world take more risks while protecting themselves more from danger.

The ALARM Exhibition is a great opportunity to network with fellow public and private sector professionals, and to catch up with new developments in risk management products and services. If you are interested in exhibiting or sponsoring this event, please contact

At the ALARM Risk Awards dinner on Monday evening, we step back in time to the roaring twenties, a 20th Century decade of social vibrancy and glamour. The Risk Awards dinner will be a Gatsby-esque soiree, embracing the art deco and flapper style the twenties is so famous for. Hosted by comedienne Lucy Porter, we will celebrate excellence in risk management - and share a fun social evening, as well as best practice!
