Event Management: Protecting Your Attendees and You
Living and working in Vermont we sometimes think we are insulated from situations that can cause injuries and impact our organization’s event liability. Extreme weather, acts of violence, medical emergencies, accidents and missing children are all part of event management. Organizations that ignore preparing for them do so at their peril.
In this seminar we will review EAP’s (Emergency Action Plans) and show how to mitigate and prepare for keeping your attendees and staff safe at your event. Additionally, we will cover liability insurance. No matter how prepared you may be, it is crucial that you have adequate liability coverage.
This seminar will be helpful to organizations who manage any size event including festivals, farmers markets and fundraisers.
