How Increased Situational Awareness and an Improved Guest Experience can Improve your Event’s Security

As exhibition and event professionals, we have the responsibility of ensuring that attendees are as safe as possible at our events.  It is critical that there is a plan of action allowing for quick decision making.

This session will provide an engaging, interactive experience for participants interested in event security.  We’ll cover situational awareness, understand the resources available to protect public facility assemblies, and hear from subject matter experts on critical infrastructure protection to help you understand mass casualty incidents and preparedness during an event.

This session allows you to see how educating those involved in the planning and execution of a meeting or event has an impact on event participants.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Learn to leverage guest services to mitigate safety and security risks.
  • Hear how enhancing professionalism and assisting employees in recognizing the Impact their words or actions have on the public.
  • Increase personal safety and decrease stress when encountering someone uncooperative.

IAEE DC Chapter February Luncheon

(Friday, February 10, 2017, Maggiano’s, Washington, DC

11:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Networking Reception

12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Luncheon and Education Program

Topic: Speaker/Title/Company: Barbara A. Myers, CAE, Chief Executive Officer of IMN Solutions, a global, full-service association, meeting and event management company located in the Washington, DC area.

Description: Key Trends for 2017 and Success Strategies for Planners in the Shared Economy This session will provide an overview of key trends for organizations going into 2017 with a special focus on the impact of the sharing economy on the events and exhibition industry. Whether it’s Airbnb, Uber or Sharing Cities Network, the sharing economy is creating new business models and forcing for-profit

businesses to adapt or fall behind. The same will hold true for the exhibition and events industry without the right strategies and plans. Born out of the recession and developing values, the sharing economy has evolved into a formidable movement. The list of companies active in the sharing economy is long, growing, and global. It touches all sectors, and utilizes network-enabled sharing to connect users and reduce hassle and costs. The sharing economy’s “triple bottom line” (financial, environmental, and social) aligns well with exhibition and events industry and there are already success stories. Exhibition and event professionals are just now at the precipice of embracing the sharing economy are are working understand how this economy will impact exhibition and event design, implementation, execution and strategies to extend networks and connect people and resources. Our industry has yet to tap into the full potential of the sharing economy. This session will explain what the sharing economy is, its implication on the exhibition and events industry and what organizers can do to leverage the shared economy for greater success.
