"Highlights of Event Safety Seminar, 23 September 2017"


About this webcast

Safety is the first priority of event organisation. The recent major incidents happened in overseas live events such as the terror attack in Manchester Arena, concert fire in Oakland, and the Marathon bombing in Boston, etc, served as a harsh reminder of the ever-present threat during any live event. The need of continuous assessment of risks and needs, as well as developing and implementing up-to-date emergency plans are essential for an effective response to all kinds of emergencies including man-made and natural disasters. The work of event safety does not rely only on the event organisers and emergency responders but also the general public, the Government and industry stakeholders.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI), with support of the Asia World Expo, conducted an Event Safety Seminar. The seminar was designed to provide practical insights for event organisers, emergency preparedness and response organisations, and all those who provide support to live events industry. Bringing together a group of international and local experts, participants learnt about the latest venue security planning strategies, protocols and technologies, as well as experts' insights on balancing security, operational efficiency and public image. 

The HKJCDPRI would like to share with you some highlights of the seminar in webcasts.
