The premier event for risk management and insurance professionals, our Conference aims to empower delegates to better deliver outstanding service to their organisations.


The 2019 ALARM Conference is returning to the University of Manchester between 23 and 25 June 2019, with the ALARM Risk Awards being held at The Principal Manchester on 24 June 2019. 

For many years the worker bee has represented Manchester's community spirit and hive of activity, and more recently used as a symbol of unity and resilience. This year's Conference draws inspiration from this and celebrates risk and insurance professionals Working Together through times of austerity, in the face of challenge and periods of great change. 

This year we are featuring a number of plenary sessions including an inspirational opener from Claire Lomas MBE, who made headlines in 2012 by completing the London Marathon in a pioneering robotic suit. There are also over 30 workshop sessions covering the range of specialist areas that public service professionals increasingly find themselves responsible for.

Our Risk Awards will be taking place on Monday 24 June, hosted by Ryan Tricks – a professional magician and YouTuber with a strong focus on using magic to inspire and help people. There are nine refreshed categories to enter, and details can be found on the Risk Awards page.

Attendance at Conference continues to be part of our membership offer so be sure to confirm your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
