Everything you need to know about Spear Shield's Security Social.exe events.

Do I have to be a customer to attend a Security Social.exe event?

No you don't! Whilst we'd of course hope that one day you might be... Our events are to provide people with a platform to network and build a community of local based IT professionals where people can share challenges and advice for best practice.

I need to leave before the Stadium Tour, is that going to be okay?

Of course! Staying on for the Portman Road Stadium Tour is optional. We appreciate people have both work and personal commitments, which is why we'll aim to finish the event at 2.30pm to give our attendees the opportunity to leave before the tour starts shortly afterwards.

Can I bring a +1?

You are more than welcome to bring a +1 and attend with a colleague. Just please ask them to register so that we are able to track availability for the limited paid for seats available.

What food and drink options will be available?
A selection of pastries will be available and a finger buffet lunch will be provided for. Please do let us know if you have any allergies or dietrareay requirements wherever possible to ensure we can accommodate wherever possible. 
Is there on-site parking available?

There is no official stadium car park, but there is parking all around the ground. The closest is a large car park on Portman Road (right by the away end, post code IP1 2BP).
