The conference, which is being held at the Palace Hotel, Manchester on 18 February 2014, is headlined ‘Protect and promote your Pubwatch through partnership working’.
It will focus on two main themes- how to run a successful pubwatch and protect it from legal challenges and other threats, and how engaging in partnership working helps promote business as part of a safe late night economy.
Also speaking will be Sir Peter Fahy, chief constable of Greater Manchester Police and Mark Baird, head of industry affairs and alcohol policy at Diageo.
A series of workshops held throughout the day will provide a forum for discussion and debate. There will also be a surgery where National Pubwatch representatives will be on hand to answer queries and give advice to local watches.
Chairman of National Pubwatch Steve Baker said: “The Pubwatch movement gives the pub and hospitality sector a very real opportunity to demonstrate its social responsibility credentials and the impact that it can make on crime and disorder, not just in pubs and bars but in the wider area.
"We pride ourselves on providing delegates with a great experience and value for money, plus the opportunity to meet other Pubwatch representatives from around the country and share ideas and good practice."
Licensees can book a place for £17 while other representatives can book for £42 with discounts for group bookings. Visit the National Pubwatch website for more details.
