The three-day event will take place November 20-22, 2019 at Rock Lititz in Lititz, Pennsylvania, with pre-summit training courses also being offered on November 18-19 for those interested in delving deeper into specific subject areas. Registration is now open (here).
“The 2019 Event Safety Summit marks the sixth time that the live event industry will meet to discuss how to produce safer, more secure live events of every type,” Take1 Insurance executive vice president & program director Scott Carroll says. “From the summit’s inception, Take1 has been proud to serve as the Presenting Sponsor of this critically important industry event that only takes on more importance with each passing year. We look forward to working with Jim Digby and his team in producing the most engaging and compelling safety summit the world has ever seen.”
According to Event Safety Alliance chairman and president Jim Digby, the theme of the 2019 Event Safety Summit will be ‘Looking Deeper.’ “All reasonable event professionals want their shows to be safe. But the meaning of ‘safe’ varies with one’s role, level of experience, and insight about the event’s ultimate goals,” Digby says. “This year’s Event Safety Summit looks deeper at the unique challenges faced by event technicians, managers, and organizers and explores how their individual safety responsibilities influence the overall event environment.
“The Event Safety Summit is our most important event of the year and we are gratified to how important it has become to the professionals who comprise our community. Scott and his team have been with the Event Safety Alliance from the beginning and we look forward to strengthening our relationship in 2019 and beyond.”
First held in 2014, the annual Event Safety Summit has grown in relevance and attendance in each subsequent year. Details on the 2019 Event Safety Summit program will be announced as they develop.
