Risk Management for Event Promoters

Date:  Wednesday, September 23, 2015 – 19:00 – 21:00
Location: The Richmond, 477 Richmond St. W. #104
Price: Free, but a donation to GlobalFire’s capacity building mission to Nicaragua is requested. Donations over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.

Anyone who’s ever got it in their head to throw an event knows there’s a financial risk involved. What you may not know is just how much legal risk you’re taking on, or how to protect yourself. If GI Joe taught us anything, it’s that knowing is half the battle… so join me on September 23, 2015 to get in the know about how to limit your liability as an event promoter. This event will be useful for those who organize events, or deal with event organizers for:

  • Music – concerts, clubs, raves, and festivals
  • Food & Drink – festivals, pop-ups, markets, taste-and-buy
  • Sports – tournaments, leagues, charity runs, competitions
  • Weddings
  • Travel – group or themed trips
  • Public gatherings – rallies, pillow fights, yoga-ins
  • Conferences

This event will feature a presentation on the key ways that you can manage your risk, a Q&A session, then the cash bar will be open, and youll have an opportunity to network with other local event promoters of all stripes. If there’s enough out of town interest, I will webcast it as well.

This event will be a fundraiser for my upcoming deployment to train first responders and provide access to clean drinking water in rural Nicaragua with GlobalFire. There’s no set cover charge, but I ask that you pay what you can. Contributions over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.

It’s an open invitation, so please feel free to circulate the event to people in your network who may be interested.
