The Visit Anaheim Customer Advisory Board (CAB) in conjunction with the Anaheim Convention Center recently underwent situation awareness training under the guidance of IAVM Director of Education Mark Herrera.
“This was a great group of industry leaders sharing best practices,” said Charles Harris, senior vice president, marketing at Visit Anaheim.
“It was truly a pleasure presenting the importance of elevating our security posture to such an awesome group in Anaheim,” Herrera said. “The entire group plays a key and integral role as it pertains to assuring that all events are carefully planned with security at the forefront. I appreciate the fact that emphasis is going to be placed on service contractors to also take a proactive stance in coordinating and raising the security baseline. Their concerns regarding emergency planning/recovery consistency amongst all venues is something that IAVM through its respective committees will continue to work on.
“I’m excited that several attendees are interested in membership and taking part in our various committees. Having representation from the customer advisory board and service contractors on our venue safety and security committee would most definitely contribute to solid collaboration as we move forward to coordinate our security efforts.”
