Eventually, even the best tour operators will experience a significant accident or illness on a trip.

How an organization identifies, assesses, and mitigates the objective risks inherent with any trip can greatly influence outcomes, and ultimately one’s risk profile in the eyes of a liability insurance carrier or potential partner.

This ATTA Member Webinar covers a diverse range of risk management topics including:

  • The contents of a successful risk management plan
  • Realistically assessing security and health risks in an uncertain world
  • Effectively communicating those risks to your travelers
  • Emergency response protocols
  • The legal/insurance tools that will help your organization minimize its true exposure

This webinar is designed to be interactive and the goal is to provide participants with a “toolbox” of practical templates to build or refine your risk management plan.
