Risk Management, Safety & Security

 

Meeting Safety & Security—Little Things Add Up

Duration: 60-90 minutes

Audience: Planners & Suppliers

Level: Intermediate & Advanced

 

Meeting professionals know safety and security is important, but less than half actually have a meetings-specific crisis plan.  Instead of staggering under the weight of creating a whole crisis preparedness program, why not focus on the little things?  This session offers practical, timely, simple solutions that can be implemented immediately in your planning and management process--adding some key items to your RFP, asking a few extra questions during the site inspection, including specific contract language, and practical tips for on-site management.  Little things add up to big protection for your attendees and great risk management for your organization.

 

Learning objectives:

  • 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.

  • Implement practical suggestions to keep attendees informed about emergency preparedness elements without inciting fear and concern.

 

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly – Safety & Security Issues and the Meetings Industry

Duration: 60-90 minutes

Audience: Planners & Suppliers

Level: Intermediate & Advanced

 

Planning and even attending global meetings is risky business, even for seasoned professionals.  Changes in the global landscape, security concerns, company policies, and travel warnings mean meeting and incentive planners have to stay sharp. The targeting of western travelers in some countries create increased travel safety concerns.  Horrific issues like human trafficking are occurring in the same places we find ourselves doing business.  In this interactive session, participants are asked to bring both their horror stories and their best practices to share with others.

 

Learning objectives:

  • Assess risk factors based on the unique attributes of meetings, the nature of the attendees, and world climate near the time of the meeting.

  • Mitigate economic, physical, and property risks through prudent negotiation and application of mitigation measures like contracts, insurance, and security.

  • Incorporate risk management into each step of meeting planning.
