Crisis Management for the Hospitality Industry Summit


May. 30, 2013,
7:30am to 5:15pm


Experience the Unthinkable

It can happen in an instant – a fire, a flood, an act of terrorism.  We prepare, we write plans, we train employees, but what happens at the decision-making level when a crisis occurs?

Join us for an opportunity to experience first-hand the problem-solving activities of an unfolding simulated disaster, based on recent actual events. Attendees will be lead through a choreographed disaster experience by emergency preparedness trainers.

In addition to time for networking, the morning sessions feature a number of speakers.

This includes:

  • Chris Smith, chief of the Nevada Division of Emergency Management—Homeland Security
  • Dr. Peter Tarlow, emergency management consultant and Founder of Tourism and More
  • James Stover, account manager, MassMedia
  • Ric Newell, safety compliance and training manager, New York-New York Hotel & Casino
  • Captain Al Salinas, Las Vegas Metro Police and director, Southern Nevada Counter-Terrorism Center
