“Looking Deeper”

All reasonable event professionals want their shows to be safe.  But the meaning of “safe” varies with one’s role, level of experience, and insight about the event’s ultimate goals.  This year’s Event Safety Summit looks deeper at the unique challenges faced by event technicians, managers, and organizers and explores how their individual safety responsibilities influence the overall event environment.

Featuring nearly 30 presentations, workshops, and networking opportunities this year’s Summit makes it easier than ever for attendees to curate a program that fits their individual interests and needs.
