Blue Lemon acted as lead agency for the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) as SIPRI organized the inaugural Stockholm Security Conference in September 2016. Sipri is one of the world’s leading think tanks and research institutes, dedicated to research into conflict, armaments, arms control and disarmament. The first Stockholm Security Conference on Secure Cities was hosted by SIPRI, in collaboration with the City of Stockholm and the Swedish Parliament and in the presence of His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf. Drawing on SIPRI’s world-leading network of security experts, the Conference brought together more than one hundred top policymakers, C-suite business executives, researchers and other key stakeholders who shared knowledge on urban security, debated and networked across diverse groups of participants.
Blue Lemon worked closely together with SIPRI in developing the concept and format for the Conference. Our scope of work included managing speaker contacts, developing pre- and post conference communication activities, producing the conference on-site as well as producing all conference content, and managing all event-related planning and administration.
