Meeting And Event Risk Management Should Be Part Of Every Program – Is It With Yours?

MPI OHIO and OSAP are pleased to present the 2024 Joint Industry Event, an engaging and enlightening experience that combines the trends of travel and tourism with risk reduction and response presentations for the travel, meeting, and hospitality industries.
 During our morning session, expert panelists will delve into the ever-evolving landscape of travel and tourism,   sharing insights on trends, challenges, and best practices when engaging with one another during the planning process.
Following the morning session, prepare to be inspired by our luncheon keynote speaker, Kevin Coffey internationally known safety expert.
Most meetings take place without incident ... but it just takes one to turn next event upside down. Technology failure, theft, facility evacuation, medical emergency and violence are just some incidents that could significantly impact not just your attendees, clients and customers, but your organization's reputation, as well. Discover "reasonable" easy-to-implement steps to help better prepare for "foreseeable" incidents and learn ways to incorporate meeting and event risk management into RFPs, pre-sales calls and site inspections, all designed to help you land more business and make your organization stand out from others in the competitive and crowded meeting marketplace.
