There Is No Safe Destination—But There Is Good Planning

Careful event planning can help make event destinations safer

It doesn't matter where they come from—event attendees can find plenty of scary news stories about the event city they are heading to. But everyone on the event team can play a part in preventing and preparing to react to problems:

As International Congress & Convention Association CEO Martin Sirk says, “I’ve frequently stated during presentations that there is no such place as a safe destination, but that doesn’t mean that association meeting planners, professional congress organizers, destination marketers, and venue directors can’t work together to help mitigate risks and prepare to deal effectively with unexpected crises.”--MeetingsNet
