At the end of October, Karen Totaro, general manager for Huntington Place/ASM Global, was pleased to announce the rollout of new public safety and security measures, starting with the November 4 all-staff International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM) Venue Safety and Security Training. Mark Herrera, director of safety and security at IAVM, will conduct the training for all teams inclusive of leadership working to secure all events in Huntington Place. "Safety is one of the top concerns for meeting planners and attendees," said Totaro. "Combining local, state and national security efforts in a way that makes our clients feel safe and cared for will be instrumental to our future." Public safety is increasingly becoming a top priority for convention centres and other venues.
