The risk assessment of the event is the heart of the plan for its management. An event is full of uncertainties; such as power failure, equipment failure, medical emergencies, confrontations, fires. Likewise, the potential withdrawal of sponsors and last minute cancellations by production staff, etc.
Also, there are risks associated with: human resources, finance, marketing, quality management, assistants, food and beverage management, programs, technical management, infrastructure, logistics, procurement, and equipment management. To deal with all these contingencies a well-documented risk management plan is required.
