With security and public safety at the top of the national agenda, and certainly at the forefront of the sports world, facility owners and operators are in a quandary: How can they ensure safety and mitigate risk without severely compromising the bottom line? On August 13th and 14th, this question will be explored, discussed and analyzed at Street & Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal’s executive forum, The Economics of Venue Security.

Through a series of case studies, open-dialogue discussions and an interactive workshop session, this program will provide you with an indepth examination of risk management, legal liability, exposures, coveragesand cost-controlmeasures unique to sports venue security. Crucial issues to be examined by leading facilities, teams, sports authorities, risk consultants and insurance providers include:
What can be done more cost-effectively to manage risk on a day-to-day basis?
What are teams and leagues mandating for their high valued properties to mitigate risk?
What is the legal liability for teams, building owners and leagues?
How are war-risk exclusions applied to property policies?
What is the insurer perspective of security exposures, and what can we expect from the insurance industry in the years to come?
Is government-assisted insurance for high-profile targets the answer to unavailable coverage? What should the role of government be?
Will venues face multiple years of large insurance price increases?
Will franchises have little choice but to raise ticket prices to subsidize security?
Without question, cost-effective security has never been more pressing for city, county and privately-owned venues. In addition to the serious issues being addressed in the conference setting, you will have the opportunity to network informally with your peers and hear how they are grappling with their own set of risk management challenges.

Be sure to sign up for the interactive post-conference planning workshop: Conducting a Comprehensive Facility Review & Developing a Risk-Assessment Checklist. Take this opportunity to benchmark your preparedness and response plan.
