The subject of security is one that dominated this report last year and will continue to do so for years to come. However, it also looked to breakdown the far-reaching breadth of the subject and to understand the different threats event organisers need to consider when creating meeting programmes.
These areas were:
- Physical safety: the need to keep delegations safe from physical harm, be it crime, terrorism, or other kinds of personal attack
- Information / Data Security: the need to protect the data of both individuals and organisations
- Environmental: the continued threat of environmental disruption, from natural disasters to those affecting travel
- Disease: How disease now can affect global commerce and cause instant disruption of events
