PrivSec London 2020 shortlisted for the Best New Conference award

Data protection conference

GRC World Forums has been shortlisted in the ‘Best New Conference’ category at the Conference Awards 2020 for its PrivSec London conference earlier this year.

The awards aim to recognise exceptional achievement in conferences and events and to encourage enthusiastic collaboration between professionals and specialists. The Conference Awards is GCN’s longest standing and flagship event. Attracting over 600 conference and venue professionals, it is considered the pinnacle of event industry recognition.

In February PrivSec London 2020 attracted over 2,000 attendees and was the largest event to date for the company.

Nick James, CEO of GRC World Forums which organises the conference, said: “In a fast moving and demanding sector, it is fitting that we were able to build a highly successful event to scale and meet customer needs. We are very pleased to be shortlisted and I thank the team involved in delivering the event.”
