Rowdy guests at a festival or convention, a riot at a sport event, a bomb at the Atlanta Olympics, a food poisoning outbreak at a company picnic - each year, thousands of accidents resulting in injury, death, and significant financial loss occur at events. This book provides assistance to event organizers, managers, and planners to reduce, in some cases eliminate, these types of losses.
