The Contingency Planning


Contingency Planning Process

Due to its very nature and complexity, the event planning process rarely goes smoothly.  In fact, there will always be certain problems, challenges and setbacks to deal with along the way.  Depending on the size and type of event being planned, even the slightest unforeseen obstacle can throw the whole event into jeopardy.  Bad weather, suppliers’ failure to deliver, venue issues and so on – just a few examples of the contingencies that need to be planned for.  Of course, the list of possible problems that can affect an event is literally endless.  Hence the importance of a dynamic, flexible and logical approach.  Not to mention, the deepest possible knowledge and understanding of common issues and appropriate resolutions.

Discover how an effective contingency planning process plays a critical role in the event planning process with this exclusive tutorial.  Explore the wider concept of risk management, along with how to carry out an event risk assessment, the potential consequences of poor risk management and the hallmarks of an efficient contingency planning process.  Learn how to deal with disasters at every level, how to prepare major incident plans, identifying security roles and responsibilities and the importance of focusing on hazard/incident prevention.
