CASE STUDY: WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED FROM RECENT TRAVEL DISRUPTIONS Tuesday, October 1 11:30 - 12:30 PM Art Garffer - AFIMAC International Bruce McIndoe - iJET Charlie LeBlanc - FrontierMEDEX

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 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?

KEY: Social & Networking Events General Sessions Round Tables Breakouts

FEATURED PRESENTATIONS BEST PRACTICES FOR HOTEL SECURITY ASSESSMENT Tuesday, October 1 10:30 - 11:30 AM Todd Seiders - Petra Risk Solutions; Becky Bromberg - Maritz LLC; Brad Bonnell - Extended Stay America; Wayne Sanders, HSSS

As buyers seek to meet their duty of care obligations, they are sending out some questions to suppliers that are perceived by suppliers to be irrelevant, unnecessary and at times overreaching. Subsequently, buyers are often frustrated with their inability to receive requested data and the suppliers are frustrated with the types of questions being asked repeatedly; additionally suppliers are concerned about broadening the scope of potential liability by answering certain questions, and of course the large brands (franchisors) have reluctance to answer on behalf of franchisees.


SESSION DESCRIPTIONS

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 also allow them to communicate effectively with risk managers, vendors, and travelers at the time of loss.

Solving Safety and Security Concerns at Meetings and Events The events and attractions industries are like no other. Sporting events, concerts, tradeshows, festivals, carnivals, awards shows, and political conventions each present a unique set of challenges. Events and attraction operators are exposed to risks involving safety, security, legal, financial, and environmental considerations. In order for an event to be successful, organizers and operators 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.

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 for Hotel Security Assessments As buyers seek to meet their duty of care obligations, they are sending out some questions to suppliers that are perceived by suppliers to be irrelevant, unnecessary and at times overreaching.

Best Practices in Executive Protection Join us for our discussion about executive protection, including the solutions and best practices for mitigating risks that have been identified throughout the Global Congress to achieve safe, secure and seamless travel.

Subsequently, buyers are often frustrated with their inability to receive requested data and the suppliers are frustrated with the types of questions being asked repeatedly; additionally suppliers are concerned about broadening the scope of potential liability by answering certain questions, and of course the large brands (franchisors) have reluctance to answer on behalf of franchisees.

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?

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.

Join this dialogue of buyers and suppliers on the development of a lodging safety/security assessment profile that will meet the needs of the hotel and the duty of care obligations of the corporate buyer; as well as a submission/response process that is relatively painless. Case Study: What We Have Learned from Recent Travel Disruptions When world events interrupt transportation, they can cause missed connections, cancelled meetings, empty hotels and cruises, delayed or lost business, and stranded passengers. The global travel equation is totally interdependent. What have we done well and what can we do better? What are the needs of travelers and meeting planners when disruptions occur, and how can the industry work together to meet those needs?

Todd Seiders - Petra Risk Solutions; Brad Bonnell Extended Stay America; Chris Gernentz - Carlson Rezidor

GROUND TRANSPORTATION SAFETY & SECURITY ASSESSMENT Tuesday, October 1 9:00 - 10:00 AM

Art Garffer & Adrian Vergel - AFIMAC International Ground transportation experts will identify the primary ground transportation risks for mobile employees, effective practices for mitigating those risks, and steps to assess the level of safety and security provided by ground transportation suppliers.


ROUND TABLE

DESCRIPTIONS

UPDATE ON TECHNOLOGY IN THE TRAVEL INDUSTRY

This round table will discuss solutions for today’s increasingly challenging security issues in travel, and what the industry is doing to elucidate the problems associated with biometric technology adoption.

FCPA - FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT

The entire business enterprise, both buyers and suppliers, must understand the broad scope and impact of this law and its foreign counterparts. As more and more mobile employees are engaged in commerce in foreign zones, significantly higher numbers of negotiations for travel aspects are being performed by a broader array of employees (travel management, procurement, HR, meeting planners, etc).

HOTEL SAFETY & SECURITY ASSESSMENT

Join this dialogue of buyers & suppliers on the development of a lodging safety/security assessment profile to meet the needs of the hotel and the duty of care obligations of the corporate buyer; as well as a submission/ response process that is relatively painless.

EXECUTIVE PROTECTION

This Executive Protection roundtable will discuss the importance of locating threats, vulnerabilities, and risks that could impact your organization; while also discussing the solutions and best practices to achieve safe, secure, and seamless travel.

AVIATION SAFETY & SECURITY ASSESSMENT

The focus of this round table will be to discuss the best practices in aviation safety and security; we will also identify the primary concerns and possible solutions that can ensure safe travel.

GROUND TRANSPORTATION SAFETY & SECURITY ASSESSMENT

Ground transportation experts will identify the primary ground transportation risks for mobile employees, effective practices for mitigating those risks, and steps to assess the level of safety and security provided by ground transportation suppliers.

DATA & IP PROTECTION

The protection of data and other intellectual property is paramount both at home and abroad. This session will suggest best practices to identify potential threats, ways to guard against them, and resources at your disposal.

GLOBAL TRAVEL HOT SPOTS

This session of travel and security intelligence thought leaders will identify locales that merit concern both now and in the near future, as well as steps to mitigate risk. They will also share their thoughts on future trouble zones for travel and employee security.

CONSULATE ROUND TABLES

Foreign diplomats will be responding to questions from the audience on topics such as visa facilitation, people and property protection, and the steps their countries are taking to provide safe and secure travel.

TRACKING

Learn from colleagues and discuss the latest challenges and solutions for tracking your employees year-round as well as how you should prepare to handle a travel crisis. Discover policies and procedures you should have in place and discuss the latest technology in tracking and messaging.

IMMIGRATION VISA ISSUES

The basic question that is particularly pertinent for employees of U. S. global companies is when it is appropriate to enter just as a visitor, often visa exempt or with a standard visitor visa for business vs. when they need to plan and obtain a work authorized visa status.

EVACUATION

This round table will discuss understanding the difference between arranging commercial transport and charter transport for clients, versus logistical support required for a full-blown evacuation; as well as, training staff on understanding where routine or even last minute travel logistics end, and the protocols for escalating the need for third party evacuations begin.

OSAC 101

This round table will discuss the support U.S companies and organizations need to mitigate security issues while operating in foreign environments.
