Companies know that they must ensure the safety of their travelers in order to comply with their duty of care and that a good travel risk management can help avoid or reduce any subsequent costs. But they sometimes forget that events should also be included in the assessment of risks. The same solution that is already widespread for business trips can in fact also be applied to meetings and events: comprehensive travel risk management.
One thing to keep in mind is that, like business travelers, event participants need information about medical or security risks at their destination. Events with a large number of participants and/or VIP attendees have higher security requirements and should be protected accordingly.
