This online training course is a broad overview of the huge changes that the events industry and its partners in Local Authorities and Emergency Services have undergone in the last two years because of and since the Covid-19 pandemic. It will consider existing guidance and best practice learned from event sites as the industry relaunches and reshapes itself.
This session will also consider the Manchester Arena bombing and its subsequent enquiry, what we know of Martyn's Law (the Protect Duty), the UEFA Euro 2020 report and early warnings of changing crowd behaviours. If appropriate, and subject to any legal factors, we will touch on the Itaewon crowd tragedy and try to understand what happened at the O2 Brixton Academy.
This course will continue to be reviewed against government guidance and monitor the Protect Duty as government shapes it. Content will be updated throughout spring and summer as the combined impacts of all these developments are felt throughout the events industry.
• Discuss the challenges of understanding and implementing ever-changing legislation and guidance
• Assess the impact on events, the events industry, and what the future is looking like
