At the SoCal event, Mark Herrera, the director of education for the International Association of Venue Managers, will speak on “Show and Venue Security.” Herrera teaches situational awareness-mindset training aimed at giving venus the tools to be safer and more secure. The training emphasizes on exceptional focus, performance and control in extreme situations and risk mitigation through Guest Services. This event has been made possible through IAEE’s Chapter Education Grant. The cost is $45 per person ($55 at the door) and includes lunch and the presentation.
Herrera’s educational session on venue security will bring together convention center facility managers, general contractors, exhibition orgainzers and suppliers to the exhibition industry from Southern California. This is a great opportunity to interact with, and get to know various professionals and associations of the entire exhibition industry that rarely have a chance to talk together. What would the real-world impact be on all of our businesses if a mass-casualty event happens at a large tradeshow? What planning is being done to prevent it from happening. What role do all of us have to play in the prevention of, and aftermath planning for, a mass-casualy event at one of our large conventions?
