Why Risk Management Should Be Part of Every Group Travel & Event Strategy

Sarah Haines

When you’re operating in the dynamic world of travel and events, you’re usually aiming to deliver mind-shifting, awe-inspiring, sensational experiences—right?

Unfortunately, sometimes unforeseeable (translated: non-sensational) circumstances interfere with the best laid plans when it comes to actual execution.

Like the dreaded news that your event’s multi-million-dollar Caribbean property renovation is taking longer than anticipated and will impact your travel dates.

Cancelled flights for hundreds of travelers due to a massive snowstorm targeting New England.

Or a Zika outbreak in the specific region your guests are heading to, just weeks before your scheduled departure.

And those are just potential logistical roadblocks.

Second-degree burns from a day at Trunk Bay or a broken leg from a fall on the Swiss slopes, a foreign terror alert when your guests are sightseeing in Paris, and on-site data breaches are all potential realities that require you to anticipate and plan for the unforeseeable—as much as you possibly can.

Take Control with a Complete Event & Travel Risk Management Strategy

Because your event is an investment, it’s important to manage it like one.

A solid risk management strategy will help you do just that, giving you the ability to design and deliver a once-in-a-lifetime experience. For every event or program, every time.

According to a Global Business Travel Association survey, nearly 30% of companies reported their organization didn't have a risk management plan in place or were unsure if there was one.
