As professionals in the festivals and events industry, we find ourselves operating in an uncertain world with evolving risks from homegrown violent extremism, cyber-security threats, severe weather events, and competing programs within a saturated market. Today, more than ever, it is essential that cities and local organizing committees adopt a proactive approach to managing risk, so they are better prepared to manage and recover from adverse events, both financially and reputationally.

This hands-on workshop promotes an interactive experience for sharing industry experiences and perspectives between attendees and the workshop facilitator.
  • International & industry best practices for enterprise risk management
  • How to identify, assess, prioritize & mitigate risks to festivals & events
  • Champions of Risk - tools & techniques for developing, implementing & leading a risk management program
  • Secure by Design - principles for enhancing security for events & festivals
  • The nexus between risk management & operational readiness – a risk based approach for preparing your team to manage adverse events.
