For the past two years the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management has been engaged in a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Elliott Marketing & PR, one of the leading marketing agencies in the leisure, hospitality and tourism sector. This partnership has involved researching, analysing, strategizing and implementing advanced business processes and skills to assist the Company to enter the tourism industry and develop it competitively going forward.
In this seminar the project’s Market Analyst, Ian Lacey, will discuss the objectives and outcomes of the project and, in particular, talk about how the London Olympics was used as a launch platform for developing further tourism knowledge and expertise in the Company. Findings from a qualitative study drawing upon the experiences of restaurant owners, destination marketers and other tourism professionals in Vancouver, host city of the 2010 Winter Olympics, will be presented. The unique strategies currently being developed by Elliott Marketing & PR for hospitality and tourism businesses in order for them to exploit the business opportunities presented by the Olympics will be discussed.

How are you Managing Risk at your Events?

Wednesday 16 March 2016

18.00 to 21.30
Chris Jones, Risk Services Manager for a leading insurance broking firm, and Tim Roberts, Director of Bristol-based Event Safety Shop Ltd and Operations Director at Glastonbury Festival.

Do you know your event-specific risks and how to mitigate them?

Working for a leading independent UK broking firm involved in providing insurance solutions for the live events industry since 1964, Chris Jones will talk about Event Risk Management, highlighting the lessons learned from a broker's perspective.

The joy of being outdoors taking in live music with a cold drink in your hand and enjoying good times with your family - or at least this is what the general public get to experience! Live events carry a myriad of highly specific risks that keep event organisers from a good night's sleep.

Many conditions can affect the chances of the events being cancelled, some of which may be out of the promoter's control such as severe weather, damage to vital equipment, damage to the venue, loss of power or an artist not being able to perform for another reason.

Chris will provide an overview of the reasons we are required to manage safety and the key strategies for a successful risk management plan.  An important theme will be the need to engage competent staff, who have received appropriate training. He will use practical examples to emphasise how effective event safety planning will reduce risks, improve safety and can provide a comprehensive claims defensibility strategy.

Joining Chris, our second speaker will be Tim Roberts, Director of Bristol-based Event Safety Shop Ltd, and amongst many other roles is the Operations Director at Glastonbury Festival.  He has worked in the event industry for 30 years, the last 15 as a full time health and safety consultant;  including concerts, festivals, sporting events and national celebrations – extending to territories across the globe.  His experience in the planning and delivery of large scale events has given an in-depth understanding of the needs of stakeholders including producers, the public, technicians and enforcing authorities.

Tim’s presentation will outline the role good health and safety management can play in producing the internationally acclaimed Glastonbury Festival.
