Upcoming Education Event

January 30th - Disaster Preparedness: Are you Ready?

Chances are that while you read this, an unexpected disaster is causing a meeting management team stress and confusion and is affecting its ability to produce an event. Are the meeting managers prepared to handle it? Will they be able to recover? Disasters of every shape, size, look and feel happen all the time, affecting businesses, people's jobs, lives and families.

This session has been designed to put you in the throes of a real-life event disaster situation, as it unfolds. You will make the critical decisions any meeting manager may have to make - and deal with the consequences of those decisions! After you've finished, you'll understand the importance of planning in advance for a disaster and event continuity planning.

Join us for this interactive workshop!

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand the principles of disaster management and how they apply to meeting and event continuity planning and effective risk management;
  • Improve your crisis communications and decision-making skills;
  • Share personal experiences regarding event challenges and disruptions they've experienced;
  • Discuss lessons learned and best practices.
