Venue Risk Management Workshop
Wednesday, April 19, 2023 | SoFi Stadium | 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Registration Cost: Complimentary
Sponsored and Hosted by
With continued safety and security incidents plaguing our industry around the world, it has never been more important for venues to have good event risk management practices — from beginning, to end, to post-event.
Venue Solutions Group is proud to collaborate with Momentus Technologies (formerly Ungerboeck) and invite venue operators, event organizers and suppliers located within the greater LA area to a free half-day workshop in best practice event risk management.
We thank SoFi Stadium for the generous support of hosting this workshop at their unparalleled sports and entertainment destination.
The workshop aims to provide a practical overview of how to conduct an effective risk assessment for event planning, and to establish a defensible level of documentation to ensure you can demonstrate a reasonably practicable approach to mitigation of foreseeable risk.
Following this workshop, you will be able to:
- Identify why risk management is important – mitigating liability and recommendations from relevant international case studies.
- Recognize the best practice process of risk management applied to events.
- Understand good risk-based decisions that add value rather than ticking the box.
- Explore short-cuts, work arounds and technology to help simplify a complicated process.
- Review risk verification, assurance and documentation.
