Identification: 04042017

Sponsored by Marriott International

1 Hour Domain C: Risk Management

The Bataclan Paris. Pulse Nightclub Orlando. Nice Bastille Day. Fort Hood Army Base. Inland Regional Center San Bernardino. The Boston Marathon. Terrorism and active shooters. Is it just a matter of time before a Meetings and Event Industry Conference appears in similar horrific headlines? What about civil unrest, controversial legislation and weather-related catastrophes such as Hurricane Katrina, the Nashville flood, Atlanta tornado? These, and other equally disruptive forces may be beyond our control but defining the role of the meeting owner or event organizer in assuring that their participants are informed and as safe as possible is not. We can't prevent every risk scenario, but shouldn't we prepare for threats even as we hope they never occur?

Learner Outcomes:

  • Comprehend the magnitude of attendee safety issues; it is not just about terrorism or active shooters.
  • Collaborate with suppliers and partners to customize safety tips for your event.
  • Acquire resources to aid in creating plans for multiple events.

Identification: 6413

1 Clock Hour | Domain C: Risk Management 

Business travel can be aggravating, stressful and potentially dangerous. Constant flight delays, security challenges, changes in time zones and climates play havoc with body and mind. With changes in diet, poor eating habits, little exercise, changes in sleep patterns and a grueling pace, you risk the potential for illness and careless behavior. Not only is this true for business travel, but also for group and incentive travel you company may sponsor. Proper training in travel safety helps you and your organization mitigate liability.

In most cases it is the legal responsibility of the organization to provide “Duty of Care” to ensure the safety of their travelers. Organizations need to safeguard personnel and/or customers when traveling by providing detailed safety information, education, and training.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Avoiding traps that can ruin a program, result in a jail sentence, cause injury or worse; death.
  • Thief avoidance - it's more than just your luggage! How to protect yourself and your belongings.
  • Building your network and resources - know who to trust at your destination.
  • Danger signs - awareness of your surroundings is your best defense

Little things add up to big protection for your attendees and great risk management for your organization.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Recognize how emergency preparedness can be integrated into each step of meeting planning and management.
  • Integrate safety and security elements seamlessly into the RFP, site inspection, and site selection process.

Identification: 6406

1.25 Hours | Domain C: Risk Management 

Cybersecurity. It’s not a matter of time if you will confront it, but is a matter of WHEN. Tech experts tell you how it may occur, but they do not tell you the what, who, and how of risk, exposure, and liability issues surrounding cybersecurity. In a recent survey, 60% of respondents said they were not prepared to defend against a data breach. Join us and explore legal, insurance, and planning aspects of your event that require safeguards to protect against this growing problem. Remember, if governments and the movie industry can be hacked, so can you. Will you be prepared?

Learner Outcomes:

  • Discuss liability on the part of the planner, the sponsoring organization, and the venue
  • Discover what protections and other proactive activities should occur and who should take them
  • Determine how all parties can work together to ensure due diligence?
