An Introduction to Event Planning ASSSS has released a series of guides and literature since its formation in 1974. These have been developed to supplement the Manual of Procedure and Standard Operating Procedures of the American Society of Security Executives. All these guides are designed to help individuals and organizations meet their legal obligations and professional standards. They are available in print and on CD-ROM. A useful feature of all these books and articles is that they are cross referenced. This means that they provide an overview of the various elements of effective event planning and provide recommendations for improved planning techniques.
An exhibitor's Guide to Event Security All companies involved in business conferences, exhibitions, trade shows, meetings, product launches, and other similar events should be aware of their legal responsibilities towards participants and their products or materials. In fact, most companies that exhibit internationally would be well advised to learn about the proper handling of highly confidential information and document preparation. Moreover, companies that exhibit locally should be familiar with their local laws, regulations, and business practices in regard to demonstrating, storing, and transporting hazardous goods. As well, the importance of planning for and attending events should not be underestimated, especially in view of the possibility of terrorist attacks or civil unrest.
Event Manager's Operating Manual The operations manual of an event management company is an excellent resource to learn about the various subjects related to event planning and security. The manual could contain topics such as managing vendors, event scheduling and design, vendor management, budgeting and payment, staffing and event operations, public information services and emergency preparedness. Some of the topics in this particular manual might prove to be interesting for those involved in event security and planning. On the other hand, some topics may prove to be boring and tedious to the readers. It is therefore recommended that a company publishes a frequently asked question (FAQ) page on its website, so that interested parties can obtain answers to frequently asked questions regarding event security and planning.
