"The Disaster Experience" is a mock disaster simulation designed to provide meeting and event managers with the experience of dealing with unexpected crisis and disruption. Participants enhance their crisis communications and decision-making skills while taking away the knowledge to improve their own emergency planning and response capabilities. Customized scenarios enhance the learning experience -- types of events, size, attendees, disruptions, localities, etc.

This simulation will put you in the throes of real-life disaster situations – as they unfold. You will make critical decisions and deal with the consequences of those decisions! After you’ve finished, you’ll understand the importance of advance disaster and event continuity planning.

Chances are that while you read this, an unexpected disaster is causing a meeting management team stress and confusion and is affecting its ability to produce an event. Are the meeting managers prepared to handle it? Will they be able to recover? Disasters of every shape, size, look and feel happen all the time, affecting businesses, people's jobs, lives and families. 

This session has been designed to put you in the throes of a real-life event disaster situation, as it unfolds. You will make the critical decisions any meeting manager may have to make - and deal with the consequences of those decisions!
After you've finished, you'll understand the importance of planning in advance for a disaster and event continuity planning. 

You'll never want to be caught unprepared again!
