Safety and security are a top concern for the meeting and event industry. With today’s climate unpredictability, pandemics, acts of terrorism and active shooters, there is a heightened duty to protect the safety of participants and safeguard the organization’s reputation and financial integrity. Many event organizers are confident that they are prepared to handle a crisis, yet they reported having no crisis communication strategy or contingency options in place for their event, leaving many concerned about their personal safety.

There is no clearly defined duty of care standards for the meeting industry. Planners want to integrate risk management into their event design process but do not know where to start.

Join Meetings Today and Brenda Rivers, JD, CIS, HMCC, for a special two-hour webinar designed specifically for the meeting organizer and planner. This series is the training companion for River’s interactive and empowering guide: The Meeting and Event Risk Management Guide: How to Develop Your Risk Management Playbook.
