Protecting the financial integrity of exhibitions is critical, and an essential element of that goal is proper risk assessment and planning. Risk management is a continuing process that identifies, analyzes, evaluates and addresses loss exposures and monitors risk control and financial resources for the purpose of mitigating the undesirable effects of loss. This involves evaluating the security needs for an event and if a crisis should occur, having a crisis management team in place to manage it.
