International venue association AIPC is offering a masterclass for venue operators keen to prepare for a smooth, successful venue reopening.
For many facilities and their management, challenges around changing reopening requirements, national vaccination programmes, mutations of the Covid virus, stakeholder concerns, and media attention combine to give cause for concern around the time period in which reopening towards full regular operations will take place. While the timing and length and many of the particular risks around this timeframe will differ for each convention centre, AIPC says there are also likely to be many common challenges.
This three-part, 2.5-hour online workshop, exclusive to AIPC members, costs €250 per participant and will focus on preparing a venue for a successful reopening period. Participants will be shown some of the latest crisis communications trends and given insights on pathways towards resolving particular risks.
The three elements of the workshop include:
- A knowledge-transfer component bringing lessons learned, latest insights, and basics on what to prepare for, including in the area of crisis communications;
- An interactive crisis mini-game to run your crisis team through a number of risk-based assignments under increasing pressure;
- A debriefing session to help capture mini-game learnings, capped off with a Top 10 ‘To Do’ list.
The workshop will be given by Glenn Schoen of Boardroom@Crisis BV, and Frank Peters of Virtus Communications, specialists in crisis management and communications and takes place on 1 March at 1.30pm CET.
Glenn Schoen (pictured) is a seasoned expert in crisis management processes. He consulted a number of governments and was recently interviewed by CNN.
