EDUCATION 

Event Security: Practical Steps for Meeting Professionals

Friday, January 19 (9:00-11:30am)

This interactive session will present a practical guide to event security for meetings of all sizes and budgets. Noted meeting attorney Josh Grimes will discuss steps that meeting planners and suppliers can take to keep events safe by identifying risks and minimizing security threats. 

Topics will include:

  • Using site visits and RFPs to identify security issues and costs.
  • Anticipating risks unique to each meeting, and taking steps to meet those risks.
  • Working with hotels and meeting venues to tailor security needs to the meeting location.
  • Drafting contract provisions for both planners and suppliers to allocate responsibility for security and reduce potential liability.
  • Reducing exposure to web hacking and data theft.
  • Preparing practical instructions for attendees to help them protect themselves against theft, loss and injuries.
  • Handling security incidents when they occur to protect attendees and property, minimize host liability, and keep friends and family properly informed.

This presentation includes a handout summary with sample contract provisions to assist attendees in drafting agreements that include appropriate risk management protections.
