Rated as a global city, HOUSTON’s economy has a broad industrial base in energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, and transportation. It is also leading in health care sectors and building oilfield equipment; only New York City is home to more Fortune 500 headquarters. America’s fourth-largest city is a cosmopolitan destination, filled with world-class dining, arts, hotels, shopping and nightlife. Take a stroll through the historic Heights, spend the day exploring the museum district or head down to Space Center Houston. Later on, grab a bite in one of dozens of award-winning restaurants, or hang out with the cool kids on Washington Avenue. There’s always something to do in this Southern Hospitality meets urban chic city.





It is my pleasure to invite you to the 3rd Annual Global Congress on Travel Risk Management held in Houston, Texas on September 30, October 1, 2013. We, along with the Greater Houston Convention & Visitors Bureau, Houston Junior Chamber of Commerce, Conrad N. Hilton College, and University of Houston Law Center, are excited to host this unprecedented convergence of global thought leaders of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. Solutions for the entire “Duty of Care” equation will be provided: Policy Development, Compliance Training and Reinforcement Best Practices, Tracking (including employee privacy concerns) Crisis Response, Evacuation Solutions, Executive Protection and a full discussion on insurance (medical health, travel, liability and how they interact with workers compensation coverage). Following Conrad N. Hilton’s vision of “world peace through international trade and travel,” attendees will learn about best practices, benchmark current policies across industries, view the latest safety and security products and services available, and discover the results of the most recent research being conducted around the world. We believe the conference’s one-of-a-kind public-private dialogue is crucial, which is why we suggest all travel professionals who are directly or indirectly responsible for the legality, safety or security of mobile people, data or property to attend. We look forward to seeing you at the Global Congress. - Stephen Barth “[We] are all talking about the topic of traveler safety, security and travel risk management, but we are NOT talking together, sharing and harmonizing solutions. Protection of human assets, whether traveling or not, is a multidisciplinary effort and organizations need us to work together to be effective. This Global Congress will provide a venue and forum to initiate and leverage a crossfunctional dialogue.” - Bruce McIndoe President, iJet International and Co-Chairman of the Global Congress Advisory Board

The travel, tourism and hospitality industries are a $3.5 trillion global economic powerhouse encompassing transportation, lodging, and venues and events. Governments around the world spend trillions on infrastructure and travel support systems. Disruptions are costly, both financially and in customer goodwill. The Global Congress’s objective is to facilitate the delivery of safe, secure and uninterrupted travel via an all-encompassing public-private dialogue dedicated to the sharing of best practices for issues faced by the global travel, tourism and hospitality industries. The Global Congress features in-depth sessions for the entire duty of care equation: • • • • • • • •

#GC13 - - Global Congress on Travel Risk Management

SESSION DESCRIPTIONS Defining our Global Duty of Care to Mobile Employees Duty of Care: What is it and how do we achieve it? Where does it apply? Is a hotel or airline an extension of the workplace? What is the real responsibility of a business to vet the security level of a hotel or airline? What about government travel warnings: how much weight should they be given? How does the utilization of a third party travel management company affect the duty of care? Insurance for All Aspects of Business Travel Experts from the insurance and assistance industries will provide fundamental language and product knowledge that Travel Managers need to ensure that their program is properly covered, and to allow them to communicate effectively with risk managers, vendors, and travelers at the time of loss. Creating an Effective Travel Policy That Includes Risk Management A panel of travel industry thought leaders, travel attorneys and travel experts converge for this crucial conversation on effective travel policies that include risk management. Best Practices in Executive Protection Join us for our discussion about executive protection; the solutions and best practices for mitigating risks that have been identified throughout the Congress to achieve safe, secure and seamless travel. Integration of the Entire Corporate Enterprise into Travel Risk Management This session identifies the common issues and concerns that directly or indirectly impact all aspects of the corporate enterprise into travel risk management: security, risk management, human resources and legal. Join experts as they share their perspectives from all aspects of corporate enterprise to help identify proper procedures and solutions in order to effectively integrate the corporate enterprise into travel risk management.

Solving Safety and Security Concerns at Meetings and Events The events and attractions industries are like no other. Whether it is a sporting event, concert, tradeshow, festival, carnival, awards show, or political convention they present a unique set of challenges. Events and attraction operators, regardless of size or situation, are exposed to risks involving safety, security, legal, financial, and environmental considerations. In order for an event to be successful, it must manage all of its obligations appropriately; after all, you only have one opportunity to succeed. The increasingly competitive and international presence of the events and attractions industries warrants swift and decisive action regarding sound safety and security measures. This presentation will help you identify and manage your event and attraction safety and security obligations. Best Practices for Hotel Security Assessments This session will explore the various methods you may use to vet hotels and help reinforce your duty of care requirements. A Security Manager and specialist in security will be on hand to give some case studies about their successes and failures and answer your questions so you can improve your value to your company and travelers. Case Study: What Have We Learned from Recent Travel Disruptions Volcanic ash, H1N1, Egypt, Libya, Japan when transportation is interrupted, connections are missed, meetings do not occur, hotels and cruises go empty, business is delayed or lost, and passengers are stranded. The global travel equation is totally interdependent. What have we done well, what can we do better? What are the needs of the leisure and business traveler, the meeting planner when disruptions occur, and how can the industry work together to meet those needs?
