Some commonly asked questions below:

What is the Close Protection Security Conference?

See the conference promotional video here: Promotional video

The conference is an annual networking and security event which takes place in the heart of the London Executive Protection industry. It is an opportunity for Security and Close Protection Professionals to meet, network and socialise in a secure and professional environment.

The Close Protection World forum is an on-line forum that rose to infamy over a decade ago when it was launched on the web. Heralding from the CP World website social meet ups over a decade ago, the meetings soon became viral and over time formalised into the current format of the annual CPW conference.

The conference now hosts a full day of :

  1. Presentations
  2. Guest speakers
  3. Exhibitors
  4. Workshops
  5. Networking
  6. Charity raffle
  7. Sponsored drinks reception

The sponsored drinks reception which is held at the end of the event is a great opportunity to meet others and build on any new contacts in an informal and friendly environment.

Historically we have had close to 350 delegates attending our events but anticipate this year will be busier due to the current pandemic and the need for people to build more bridges throughout the industry.

Who should attend?

We warmly welcome all backgrounds and nationalities to our London event.

This event is for the entire spectrum of the security sector: From security consultants, family TL's and newly trained CPO's, to Hostile operators working in Afghan, family chauffeurs and Surveillance professionals.

  • Experienced CPO? If you have a few more years under your belt (And a few more notches) then come along and listen into some of our workshops, network with others and expand your network. Chance your arm at the charity raffle (All donations welcome) and meet countless Operational companies and recruiters in attendance.
  • Considering a new career? Civilian, Police, UK Armed Forces, blue light services or any other walk of life who have an interest in entering or are considering entering the security industry are welcome. This is a perfect opportunity to network with security professionals who are currently on the circuit, or like you, maybe trying to enter the circuit. Our industry naturally attracts a large proportion of Ex Military and Police and should you fall into this category and are considering entering the 'Circuit' then come along. See the industry first hand, speak with others, meet training providers and try your hand at the charity raffle and maybe win some top prizes.
  • Can't decide on a training provider? Come to the event and speak with your training provider or ask about your preferred supplier. There is no better way to assess the company you are considering investing in than to meet them face to face. Historically we have attracted training providers from driving, CP, First Aid and surveillance exhibitors.

Why should I attend?

Networking and building contacts is without doubt the best way for security professionals to organically grow into and throughout our industry.

This is an opportunity to network, learn, socialise and meet like minded individuals within the security sector.

The UK Government is confident that the UK COVID-19 recovery plan will remain on track and that all venues will be fully open by the end of June 2021 as per the recovery plan. It is therefore anticipated that the 2022 Close Protection World security and networking conference will take place in November. It will only be cancelled if the event can not legally be hosted by the venue (The Victory Services Club) due to changes in UK Government guidelines. If this is the case then all costs will be reimbursed to the consumers.
