Risk Management

Preparing for an uncertain world

For safety is not a gadget but a state of mind.
– Eleanor Everet

Over the years, Andavo has worked to develop a robust training program for event planners. We gather your team together and teach them how to develop a customized risk management playbook for each event they create. Through scenario exercises, resource guides, and problem solving for many situations, your team will be better prepared to handle your events and ensure everyone is kept safe and secure.

A Practical Strategy For Event Security


The duty of care to safeguard corporate employees when traveling for business has long been the foundation of corporate travel management policies. Similarly, the meeting and event owner has a duty of care to take all reasonable steps available to protect the safety and well-being of all participants. Increasing occurrences of climate unpredictability, natural disasters, pandemics, acts of terrorism and active shooter situations have created the need for heightened awareness of the vulnerabilities of meetings and events. Many of these crises are impossible to prevent, but having a detailed risk management plan and a well-rehearsed crisis team will help mitigate the risk, enable faster response, avoid injuries and ultimately save lives!

Individuals and meeting owners should be prepared to handle an event crisis by being well-informed about the destination, the venue, the local emergency response teams and their roles in crisis management, and how to follow the established procedures. Even if likelihood of an active shooter or a hurricane is remote, the world we live in today is unpredictable. So why wouldn’t you do all that is reasonable and prudent in order to protect the safety of your participants and preserve your company’s financial and brand integrity?
