  • Managing Demand in Control Rooms

BAPCO 2018

A look back at BAPCO 2018.  BAPCO opened at its new home at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on 20th - 21st March 2018 and was acclaimed a roaring success. Over 1,800 visitors attended the conference across its two days, and delegates witnessed presentations from the Home Office, the Metropolitan Police, London Fire Brigade and more. Once again, BAPCO proved itself as the must-attend annual event for all those involved in public safety communications.
