The 2024 Campus Safety Conference (CSC) will be held in July 8-10th in Atlanta, GA. We will also be co-locating with our sister show, EDspaces, in Houston, TX - November 12-14, 2024. 

For 10 years, Campus Safety Conference (CSC) has brought together safety & security leaders for K-12, Higher Ed and Healthcare campuses. We focus on intensive education, hands-on training, peer-to-peer networking, and product showcases over 2 1/2 days.

In 2023, our events brought together representatives from 40 states and four countries in two summer events and one fall event. As we look towards the next 10 years of CSC, we hope to be a national resource of education, peer relationship building, and connectivity. To align with this mission, we will be hosting one summer event and one fall event for 2024.  

Campus Safety is the leading national brand that connects security, public safety, emergency management, administration, facilities, business, and IT professionals responsible for protecting campuses and facilities with leading and innovative solutions providers. CSC affords attendees the opportunity to meet face-to-face with these peers and share lessons learned in both successes and struggles. Our events are collaborative, innovative, and peer driven, and offer resources and training needed to increase preparedness, communication, and response prior to, during, and after a variety of safety and security incidents.

The theme for the 2024 Campus Safety Conferences is 'Strong Connections, Safer Campuses.' By sharing experiences and best practices, we are stronger as a campus, community, and world. 

Prospective speakers are encouraged to submit detailed proposals addressing safety and security topics facing higher education, healthcare, and K-12 campuses for both the Campus Safety Conference and EDspaces, if interested. Submissions are due January 31, 2024.
