TechEd - At last a conference venue that has good physical security

Don't get carried away by the title to this post - no conference venue is going to have good physical security by it's very nature of allowing admission to members of the public and the shear scale - most important the impact of a security violation at such a location is generally very low as the information is all public anyway.

The security team at Amsterdam's RAI centre don't take any nonesense - particularly if you try to get into the speaker room without the appropriate credentials. I normally get very frustrated at how poor the physical security is at conferences and how much trust the attendees (and speakers!) place in it.

  • Physical security is often overlooked in many events and offices. Just look at this:

  • Matt> This year's TechEd EMEA was the ONLY public conference I've been to that had ANY kind of physical security!
