DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dunblane Hydro, Perth Road, Dunblane FK15 0HG

We look forward to welcoming you to our face-to-face Scotland Conference on 24 to 26 October.

You can be reassured that this event has been organised with high standards of COVID-19 safety by ALARM and Hilton. 

We continue to monitor the pandemic situation and regularly review our precautions and contingencies. (See Peace of mind below for more detail).

This event is free for all ALARM members and sponsors. We also extend our free invitation to your colleagues who may not be named members of ALARM.

This year's agenda is jampacked with informative and educational sessions, plus delegates can attend exhibitor stands as part of our first in-person conference exhibition since 2019. Come and meet the experts, and take the opportunity to catch up with your suppliers and partners.

The 2021 Scotland Conference reviews transformation kickstarted by the pandemic, which includes the changing world of work, an update on social care in Scotland, and post-pandemic business continuity and resilience.

The climate emergency is moving up the priority list for many of our organisations. The theme is particularly current as COP26 will be hosted in Glasgow soon after our Conference, and Police Scotland is presenting on COP26 risk management, followed by sessions on sustainable buildings and managing electric fleets. 

There are many opportunities for learning, continuing professional development, expert insight, live participation, and networking with members and sponsors. It will be fun too, with a quiz and drinks reception, hosted by Kennedys.



This event has been planned in line with COVID-19 Government guidance. ALARM's event precautions are listed below:

  • Social distancing is not required in Scotland, however we have adopted a policy for adequate spacing between exhibition stands and tables at the venue. 
  • Face masks are mandatory at face-to-face events in Scotland. Face masks must be worn at all times and in all areas of the venue, except while seated at a table or while drinking or eating standing up. Speakers can remove masks to deliver  presentations.  
  • Please use the hand sanitisers at the venue and/or regularly wash your hands. 
  • Where possible please take a lateral flow test immediately prior to attending all face-to-face events.
  • If you or anyone in your household has any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not attend the event. (Please contact the ALARM Office at your earliest convenience). 

With ALARM's  precautions in mind, we ask members who would like to attend to book now to assist us in managing COVID-19 safety effectively.

In the unfortunate event of the Conference being cancelled, or members being unable to attend due to changes in pandemic restrictions or their organisations' policies, ALARM will waiver the cancellation fee. 

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact the ALARM Office.
