PACIFIC WORLD CREATES BEST PRACTICE ADVICE ON RISK MANAGEMENT
 
Pacific World, the leading Global DMC and Event Management company has addressed the issue of safety, security and risk management with content and advice to the industry on its website at www.pacificworld.com/blog.

Announcing the online advice, Selena Chavry, Global Managing Director of Pacific World said: “In these times of uncertainty, with an increasing number of incidents occurring globally, risk management has emerged as one of the key priorities when planning for an event. Safety is a big issue for all organisations from event planners, to meeting venues and conference centres to hotels, indeed any event venue. Most have developed an internal risk management plan but as the list of threats to the industry continues to grow, there is a need to ensure that these processes are transparent, consistent and up-to-date. “

“In order to address all of the issues, we need to ensure every part of our best practice is covered and that includes all of the tricky questions too, all of it is relevant to events any size.”  added Chavry.

1) Planning for safety at large-scale events
What does it take to create a safety and security plan for events of 50,000 delegates? How to incorporate an incident plan for events while on the move?  What are the considerations when planning communication channels for delegates when they are offsite?

2) Is the industry equipped to handle a crisis?
When a crisis hits, even with the best planning things can take a turn for the unknown. Laying the proper groundwork that includes establishing clear roles, training, building relationships with the authorities and maintaining a relevant risk management plan will help to build confidence when the situation may seem out of control.

3) How to work effectively with local authorities for first-hand information
Results from a recent global Destination Index identified Thailand as one of the top destinations in Asia despite the nation having its share of incidents over the years. How quickly tourism can rebound each time is a testament to the crisis resolution   abilities of the local authorities but meeting and event planners need to have the expertise to make the decision if an event should go on or to fall back on the contingency plans.

PACIFIC WORLD GLOBAL DESTINATION INDEX REPORT IDENTIFIES ITALY AND FRANCE AS TOP DESTINATIONS FOR INCENTIVES AND CONFERENCES IN EUROPE

Milan and Paris Identified as Top Cities
Results from a recent global Destination Index, compiled by the leading Global DMC and Event Management Company, Pacific World (www.pacificworld.com), have identified Italy and France as the most popular countries in Europe for meetings and incentives.

Improved transport links and investment in infrastructure resulting in the opening of a number of new hotels and venues were factors accountable for the fact that Milan and Paris have both been voted as most popular European cities for Meetings and Incentives.

Emanuele Pinna, Destination Manager of Pacific World Italy, commented, “Thanks to its geographic centrality, recent economic and political stability and very good direct flight connections, Italy is becoming and increasingly popular destination for meetings and incentives.  The destination is also seeing a great deal of interest from Middle East meeting planners, due to the Alitalia acquisition by Etihad in 2014.”

Emirates flying daily from Dubai to Bologna from November 2015, has made Bologna’s Marconi Airport the fourth largest in Italy for global connections. From February 2016 Verona will accommodate three flights a week from Paris Orly International Airport, operated by Transavia, Air France’s low cost company.

Cecile Dubeau, Destination Manager of Pacific World France, commented: “We’ve seen an increased demand for Paris as a meetings and incentives destination from countries including USA, UK, Germany and Brazil. Factors contributing towards its rise in popularity include the impact of the exchange rate for US clients, affording them greater buying power and the constant demand from the EU zone source markets.”
