About the Event Safety Summit

Event Safety Alliance® (ESA) announces discounted early registration for the third installment of the annual Event Safety Summit, taking place Tuesday, November 29 – Thursday, December 1, 2016 at Rock Lititz in Lititz, Pennsylvania.

E Pluribus Unum (‘out of many, one’)

Collaboration is key to the success of any event. 100 or 100,000 in attendance, wedding, meeting, festival or the Queen’s 90th birthday, none of these events take place without the specialized skills of a myriad of individuals.

Cooperation and coordination within a multitude of disciplines is what makes successful and safe execution possible. This year’s Event Safety Summit focuses on the ways we event professionals are indisputably reliant on each other, our collective working environment, and our guests. Highlighting issues facing all types and sizes of events, ESS 2016 will examine our individual and shared responsibilities as event professionals, and provide actionable ideas for improving interdisciplinary collaboration & communication, strengthening bonds, and sustaining safety as a priority within our industry.

Current subject matter includes:

  • Developing integrated show safety programs;
  • Key elements of safe temporary structures;
  • Severe weather contingency planning;
  • Emergency communications and evacuation;
  • “Real World” risk management at live events;
  • Event medical care;
  • Violence mitigation, recognition & response;
  • Safety in the burgeoning international marketplace;
  • The future of safety education;

…and much more.

ESS 2016 emphasizes the strength in our collective unity and how understanding the role each of us plays in creating a safe workplace is essential to protecting the lives and livelihoods of those under our care.
