SESSION DESCRIPTION:

DISASTER PREPAREDNESS - WHAT TO DO WHEN DISASTER STRIKES DURING YOUR MEETING

Presented by Discover Puerto Rico

There too many things beyond one’s control happening in today’s world that can impact an event. Natural disasters take many shapes. Recent earthquakes, broken water mains, wildfires, active shooters are just a few examples that can impact an event. While rare, planners and suppliers must have preparedness ad evacuation plans in place for common disasters. This panel style program will review tools, resources and protocols planners and suppliers should consider as part of their event activities. The program will focus on disasters that might happen while onsite and not necessarily address those impacted by Force Majeure contract clauses. Panel will talk about how they plan for unforeseen disasters during the event. Attendees will have opportunities to ask questions.
