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.

Great session and very informed speakers! What domain does this fall into as my certificate does not have it listed and I don't see it anywhere on the slides? Risk Management is obvious but I thought it may also be Strategic Planning. Thanks, Anita Washburn, or 330.670.7806.
