Postponement due to coronavirus (COVID-19)
With the rapidly evolving situation with regards to COVID-19 – and with the health and safety of our delegates, speakers, exhibitors, and NCEC and venue staff being our top priority – we have taken the decision to postpone Hazmat 2020.
Hazmat 2020 will now take place on 13 and 14 October 2020 at the Crowne Plaza, Stratford-upon-Avon. All confirmed delegate and exhibitor registrations will be valid for these dates. Registration will remain open for new delegates and exhibitors until 25 September. The pre-conference workshop on emotional resilience will now take place on the afternoon of 12 October.
Those who are registered to attend, speak or exhibit have been contacted directly. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NCEC’s Hazmat conferences are now well established as the 'must go' event for Hazmat professionals to share experiences and gain knowledge with like-minded professionals working in the chemical incident industries.
13-14 October 2020, Crowne Plaza, Stratford-upon-Avon
Now in its 13th year, the event draws upon the knowledge and experience of a broad range of hazmat professionals and industry leaders, as well as NCEC’s own emergency responders and experts. Bringing together international speakers from across sectors, delegates will benefit from world-standard presentations, case studies and practical, hands-on workshops in a friendly and welcoming environment.
Using delegate feedback gathered at previous events, the format for Hazmat 2020 will again include a range of case studies and interactive exercises. We will be encouraging speakers to include practical elements and group interaction where relevant. Sessions will also cover a cross-section of subjects as we look to increase multi-agency representation. Delegates will have the opportunity to tailor their experience by registering for specific workshops once the programme has been finalised.
Why should I attend?
Hazmat professionals need to keep up to date with hazardous materials response, chemical exposure monitoring, emergency planning, developments in legislation, future technologies, and learn lessons from past experiences. The Hazmat event is the best opportunity to gain a wider understanding of these issues, and more importantly, practical ways to address them.
All the subjects covered are relevant to people involved in chemical incident response and the setting provides a great opportunity to question and discuss content both in the forum and informally one-to-one. Delegates are drawn from fire services, police forces, ambulance services, the MOD, chemical industry and bodies such as the Environment Agency and the Met Office.
Half-day workshop is back for 2020!
20 delegate places only
12 October 2020, 1:00-5:00pm
During this workshop, one of our crisis management consultants, Chris Scott, who is an ex-military and a specialist in human intelligence (HUMIT) will work with you to support you in developing an understanding of a range of emotional responses to major incidents, both how the emotional response informs and changes perceptions and decision makings during the incident itself, along with its long-term impacts and the effects of stress.
Registrations close on 25 September 2020, book your place now.
