Risk management is a central part of any event organizing committee’s planning cycle- it is both an operational and “duty of care” requirement. What is it? It is a process whereby the event planning team methodically addresses the risks associated with their activities, with the goal of treating or mitigating those risks which may have an adverse impact (financial, image, reputation, etc.) on the event if the risk is materialized.

OPERATIONS: FROM VISION TO REALITY - PART 1

The expansive area of “Operations” is where the rubber meets the road, and this session will cover multiple areas that can make or break an event.
• Event infrastructure: The infrastructure for many events is a lot like building a small village where the day before there was nothing. Stage, lights, sound, tents, vehicles, decorations, bleachers, food delivery, trash pick-up, communications, utilities, parking et al., we’ll talk about what you may need. Where to go get it, and lots of insider-tips to remember in the process.
• Attendee & Support Services: Whenever you plan to draw a crowd, you have got to be thinking about what their needs may be: information, medical, lost kids, rest areas, ATM’s, restrooms, trash disposal, signage, communications, safety, and security plans, accessibility; and much more. We’ll make sure you don’t forget anything.
• Environmental Realities: Events can play an important role through education and as a role model in protecting the environment.
