Posted on 20th February 2019 at 09:12am

With just a few weeks to go before the EENA Conference 2019, which takes place on April 10-12, 2019, we are excited to present the gathering point for emergency services and public safety professionals, writes Beatriz Peon.

One of the sessions of EENA2018

In sunny Dubrovnik this April, we will welcome more than 750 delegates from over 55 countries, all with a desire to learn, share ideas and improve people’s safety in Europe and beyond. For three days, we are bringing together representatives from all sectors of the emergency services field, from researchers and emergency services professionals, to solution-providers, mobile network operators and EU institution representatives…

Following the latest developments and trends in public safety worldwide, this year’s programme will highlight technological solutions and how to adapt to the future in a fast-changing environment. Not only will we hear from leading experts in the plenary sessions, we will also discuss and debate operational and technical issues with specialists from across the world.

Participants will have the opportunity to experience cutting-edge technology first hand at EENA2019

Join us together with more than 100 high-level speakers to learn about:

  • The Internet of Things, Smart Cities, Artificial Intelligence and how to harness the potential of trending technology around us to save lives
  • How dedicated technology is going to change the work of emergency services professionals thanks to AED, telemedicine, and other developments related to their well-being and training(https://eenaconference.org/2993-2/)
  • A look into the future and the impact of climate change, natural disasters, public warning and emergency preparedness
  • Our personal favourites, with sessions on drones, Next Generation 112/911, interconnectivity of apps for safety…

…and much more

We are also introducing our brand new Industry Track, showcasing the most innovative products on the emergency services market – offering participants a glimpse of the solutions of the future, today. For the first time, the programme features two full-day Pre-Conference Workshops on April 9, which will provide interested participants with in-depth knowledge on specific topics affecting public safety organisations: Adapting To The New Data Protection Rules. For Public Safety Organisations (organised by EENA and Bird & Bird and Drones in Public Safety – Hands on Training Day (organised together with DJI and including live demonstrations).

Building on the success of previous editions, the event will also feature an exhibition running parallel to the programme. Participants will enjoy the opportunity to learn and experience first-hand the latest innovations from 30 exhibitors, ranging from cutting-edge technology developers to leading public safety and operations companies, together with telecommunications solutions providers. 

Join us and network with hundreds of your peers from all over the world and stay at the forefront of public safety developments and innovations. Our social programme includes great networking opportunities at our Social Event on 11 April (spiced up with our infamous EENA quiz), and  Public Safety Tinder Time – a revamp of our speed-dating style session dedicated to bring professionals together for high-level discussions.

We also are proud to celebrate modern-day heroes going beyond the expected to improve people’s safety. The 112 Awards ceremony celebrates incredible rescues, the use of technology for good, and inspirational acts by citizens and emergency services to save people in danger. This year, we have a whole host of surprises, laughs and emotional stories. Join us to be inspired by the achievements of others.
