Did you know that 50 percent of meeting and event professionals don't have a risk management plan in place? Meeting Professionals International hopes to close this gap by partnering with safety and security experts to provide education that increases the level of security of events worldwide.

Created in partnership with the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4), this 6-hour, intensive course will take a deep dive into incident management strategies as needed for the prevention, preparedness, response and recovery from all-hazard emergency incidents.

Learners will be introduced to techniques to prevent and respond to extraordinary crimes, violence, terrorist attacks, natural disasters and ordinary incidents such as fights, or drunkenness to ensure the safety and security of all attendees, limit damage and restore services in the event of emergencies.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Differentiate between events and incidents for purposes of managing risk
  • Examine the roles of various stakeholders in communication and collaboration
  • Apply risk assessment and management techniques to mitigate, transfer, accept and/or avoid risk
  • Explain the critical components of the emergency planning process
  • Summarize post-event reporting and lessons learned for continuous improvement
