Registration is Now Open for the 2019 Event Safety Summit
With a slate of more than 30 presentations, workshops, and networking opportunities already on the schedule, leading entertainment industry insurance solutions provider Take1 Insurance and the Event Safety Alliance today announced that registration is now open for the 2019 Event Safety Summit. Click here for more information and to register for the summit.
The 2019 three-day event, presented by Take1 Insurance, will take place November 20-22, 2019 at Rock Lititz in Lititz, Pennsylvania, with pre-summit training courses also being offered on November 18-19 for those interested in delving deeper into specific subject areas.
“Looking Deeper is the theme of the 2019 Event Safety Summit because, in light of continuing tragedies within our industry, it’s important that we address safety concerns at the positional as well as cultural level,” Event Safety Alliance Chairman and President Jim Digby said today. “The Event Safety Summit audience is diverse, and the issues faced by a promoter are not necessarily the same as those faced by a rigger, tour manager, or security professional. We’ve expanded this year’s program to allow for deeper dives into specific areas of concern while still maintaining the Summit’s focus on the cultural issues that affect us all.”
According to Digby, a sampling of the topics that will be addressed at the 2019 Event Safety Summit include:
“And, of course, there will be a complete and informative presentation and discussion on the topic of insurance,” Take1 Executive Vice President & Program Director Scott Carroll emphasized. “No live event is ever complete without having the right kind of insurance coverage in place — coverage that anticipates and understands the majority of risks that are present at live events. In fact, Insurance is one of the most important tools in the tool box of live event professionals.”
