– NOEA Unveil Theme for 2019 Convention –

The National Outdoor Event Association will be inviting delegates into a live crisis situation at its annual convention this year. The workshop session will be led by Bev Osborn, Training 4 Resilience, and will feature a live situation with media involvement and a minute by minute evolving situation which will test delegate’s ability to decision make under fire.

Although serious in subject matter, the session will be lighthearted and informative, with the aiming of answering the question, “Who am I responsible for when things go wrong?” The session will follows the wider theme for this year’s convention; ‘Who’s Looking After Who?: Safety & Responsibility at Events’, focusing on the people and responsibilities that bring events together.

The date of the convention will be 27th November, and will once again take place at The Guildhall, in historic Bath, and precede NOEA’s annual awards event. Last year the event saw over 150 delegates in attendance with more expected for 2019.

“The workshop last year worked really well, and people enjoyed the theatre of it as well as the educational elements,” commented Susan Tanner, CEO, NOEA. “We wanted to bring in a similar set up for this year, and to use it to reflect our convention theme which is about people and responsibilities at events.”

On top of the workshop session, the convention will also feature a special section on the recently introduced exclusion zone – or ‘Zone X’, as well as content on the health and wellbeing of on-site staff, using ticketing to understand who is onsite, and a keynote speaker from an industry great.
