Los Angeles, CA (September 17, 2013)—Take 1 Insurance, Event Safety Alliance (ESA) and NewBay Media's Rental and Staging Systems
will team up to host an upcoming Webinar focusing on producing safer live events.
Geared towards the production side of staging live events, the safety Webinar will take place on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 2 p.m. EST and is open to anyone involved in the production and staging of live events.
“Due to a series of tragic accidents, life safety has become a major concern to many within the live event industry,” explained Jim Digby, founder of the Event Safety Alliance. “Whether you work directly on productions or provide support to them, everyone has a role to play in ensuring the well-being of our performers, workers and audience members. In this webinar, leaders from ESA and Take1 will detail the importance and responsibilities of event safety for those who promote, produce and insure live events. You’ll learn more about the mission and activities of the ESA, our vision for the future, and the solutions offered by Take1. Most importantly, we’ll discuss critical tools and resources currently in development, and how the insurance industry can work with the ESA to create safer live events.”
“The time for discussion is over and the time to take action is at hand,” said Scott Carroll, Executive Vice President and Program Director of Take1 Insurance. “For years, we have emphasized the need for live event producers to take the time to prepare for the unimaginable, and now, thanks to the leadership position taken by Jim Digby and the Event Safety Alliance, the industry can utilize the ESA’s “Event Safety Guide” to prepare complete emergency action plans that include having the right insurance coverage in place.”
A week after the Event Safety webinar, the Event Safety Alliance will take its message of “be prepared” to LDI 2013 (November 22–24, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada) where it will host a presentation entitled “The Event Safety Guide: The Future of Safe, Responsible Show Production” on November 23, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Las Vegas Convention Center. At 3:30 p.m. the same day, the ESA will host a 90-minute roundtable discussion entitled “You Are The ESA” at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
