Monday 25 January 2021

At ALARM we have been watching with bated breath how the COVID-19 crisis is resolving and how the vaccination programme is rolling out.

Having assessed the ongoing situation we believe that safe, free movement won’t be possible until much later this year. Sadly, too late for our traditional ALARM Conference, booked for June. But that doesn’t mean Conference won’t go ahead!

ALARM will host a virtual Conference over the whole week of 21-25 June.

This new style Conference is unique, with many opportunities for learning, continuing professional development, expert insight, live participation, and networking with members and sponsors. And it’s going to be fun too, with a daily quiz, two daily wellbeing sessions to de-stress, and a wrap party.

In 2020, over 200 people dialled in on each of ALARM’s two virtual conferences, and the 32 webinars we hosted for members proved very popular, with great member feedback.

Online interaction and learning is now the norm, and we are developing an ALARM virtual offering tailored to our membership. We are including even more in 2021 – for free!

All extra events and benefits this year are included in the 2021 membership fee.

How will the ALARM virtual Conference work?

The Conference app is back! It will include:

  • Conference timetable with session and log-in info, plus presenter and sponsor details. (Updated regularly to include changes.)
  • Session presentations to download, with presenter biographies and contact details.
  • Exhibitor directory, with an individual page for each exhibitor.
  • 2021 editions of stronger to download.
  • 2020 – 2021 published guidance documents to download.
  • A list of all delegates, with chat function for private messaging.

The app will be live for the week of Conference. The daily live interactive sessions will be hosted by the ALARM Office through Zoom.

Sessions will be recorded and downloadable from the ALARM website from the week following Conference up to the end of 2021.

Help shape the 2021 ALARM virtual Conference and submit your ideas and proposals to by 28 February.

Last but not least, there is more exciting news to come on the virtual ALARM awards in September and (hopefully) a face-to-face celebration of ALARM’s 30th birthday in London in December. Watch this space!
