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.
