"This year's agenda really does reflect the times we live in and the complex challenges that confront everyone involved in the production and staging of live events," emphasizes Event Safety Alliance president Jim Digby. "From traditional safety concerns to the health and weather threats that have become part of the modern event industry, this year's agenda is going to take a serious look at all of the things that live event professionals really need to plan for as part of a complete event safety plan."

Echoing those comments, Take1 Insurance senior vice president and program director Scott Carroll emphasizes that, "As an insurance provider, safety must be the number one consideration of everyone involved in event production. Nothing takes priority over considering every possible threat and having a contingency plan in place to mitigate against those threats. Together with Intact Insurance Specialty Solutions, we are proud to be the co-presenting sponsors of this vital annual industry event."
