Academic Forums



NCS4 hosts annual academic forums across the United States to address the key critical safety and security challenges facing industry professionals in their specific fields. The events lead up to a national conference that is the culmination of each specific discipline coming together with their findings.

Eventgoers are made up of top safety and security professionals. Our target audience includes a wide range of security directors and operators, facility and stadium managers, event planners/operators, law enforcement personnel, emergency managers, fire/hazmat, emergency medical/health services, athletic sport administrators, and governmental representatives. These are individuals representing or supporting professional sport venues, intercollegiate athletics, interscholastic athletics, marathon/endurance events, and commercial sport and entertainment facilities.
