About the Safety & Security Guide
According to recent studies, 53% of meeting and event organizers don’t have an event-specific crisis management plan in place. The Essential Guide to Safety and Security provides nearly 400 recommendations for safety and security best practices for meeting and events, and may be adapted for meetings large or small.
Meeting Professionals International (MPI) partnered with the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at the University of Southern Mississippi to establish these best practices. These best practices are the product of Risk Management Conclave discussions, personal interviews, expert vetting and a comprehensive review of literature, including existing security plans and operational procedures, government publications such as theSAFETY ACT, academic research reports and published articles.
The Areas Covered Include:
Risk, Threat, Vulnerability Assessment
Event Safety and Security Planning
People Movement and Management
Emergency Action Planning and Crisis Management
Business Continuity, Resilience and Recovery
Staff Management/Performance, Training, Coordination and Development
Technology/Information Management and Security
This guide will be refreshed annually during Risk Management Conclaves, which bring together representatives from industry associations, event management groups, venue operations, transportation, audiovisual, federal, state and local public safety agencies and more. If you would like to receive invitations to participate in future Conclaves, enter your name and email to register interest.
The Essential Guide is a free member benefit for MPI Members and may be purchased by non-members for $49.
