Saving Lives through Collaboration, Interoperability and Innovation

2017 Sponsors


This was my first conference of this nature and I found it extremely useful. I would recommend Blue Light Innovation to any police leader, or anyone else involved in police change.

Detective Constable, Derbyshire Police

I am very pleased to have attended this conference, it was great to see so many emergency service managers wanting to work more closely together to improve the service delivery to the communities we serve.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner, London Fire Brigade

A conference that delivers clear insight into methods that lead to improvement whilst allowing sufficient time to network and share ideas.

Group Manager - Head of Service Response, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service

A thought provoking and innovative day that highlighted what could be done with the right people and mind set.

Head of Operational Audit and Assurance, MOPAC

The conference was topical and interesting at an excellent venue with a good balance between formal presentations and workshop events. Some of the examples of joint working were thought provoking demonstrating the benefits of a “why not” attitude to collaboration.
