Conference initiatives and launch of Government Select Scheme
The SDW event (and the associated DocEx seminar series) has a demonstrable record in attracting a wide international audience, with a special emphasis on government participants. More than 1,600 attendees from 65 nations joined the 2014 event, with 66% of participants travelling from outside the UK. An impressive 16% of attendees represented government and/or law-enforcement organisations, comprising more than 250 individuals from 30 countries.
Recognizing the special significance that government involvement plays in the event, SDW 2015 today announces the launch of its Government Select scheme to increase further the number of high-ranking government officials participating in the event.
Mark Lockie, SDW 2015 Director, commented: "We are delighted to announce today the establishment of our Government Select scheme, which will see us investing a significant capital
resource into being able to invite hand-selected, high-ranking government officials from across the world to attend the event. We anticipate that this will boost our already-strong government presence and deliver an unparalleled audience to the event."
