The SGSA is delighted to announce its sixth conference is coming to the Etihad Stadium, in the thriving city of Manchester, on Tuesday 24 May 2022.

Being a safety professional requires constant vigilance and an ability to respond to changing and emerging threats to keeping people safe. The SGSA Conference 2022 will address the key issues facing those involved in the sports and events sector, particularly around safety, security and service.



This event is for anyone involved in safety at large events, in particular, safety at sports grounds. A focus of the conference will be the introduction of licensed standing in seated areas – with the event taking place at one of the early adopter grounds, you’ll be able to hear first hand the experiences from the first few months of its implementation.

The conference programme will include:

  • What’s happening in the sports grounds safety sector and the long term impact of the pandemic
  • The Protect Duty
  • Safety management
  • Equality, diversity and inclusion
  • Fan engagement

More details on the programme will be released over the next few months.

There will also be lots of opportunity for you to network with other safety professionals throughout the day.



We are offering an early bird ticket from now until 31 March:

  • Sports, venues and local authorities – £110
  • Private sector – £130

A group discount of 10% for orders of four or more delegates is available.  Please contact Monica Gameiro ( or Andrea Jones ( for more information.
