Severe Weather Summit

March 21 - 22, 2019


The Severe Weather Summit returns, with a special discount for 2018 Event Safety Summit attendees.

Event and venue professionals thrive in an environment that requires both careful preparation and the ability to adapt to frequently changing circumstances. But recent history shows that severe weather can disrupt even the best-laid plans. When it does, the results can be physically and financially catastrophic.

Continuing with our mission to provide the event industry with relevant & practical learning opportunities, Event Safety Alliance is excited to announce the return of the Severe Weather Summit, March 21-22, 2019.

The Severe Weather Summit is designed to aid event and venue professionals of all types in preparing for and responding to dangerous weather conditions. Over the course of two days at the National Weather Center’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, subject matter experts from NOAA and the National Weather Service will explore topics including:

  • Severe weather phenomena that can threaten all types of events and facilities;
  • Why playing “amateur meteorologist” can be dangerous;
  • Public and private-sector resources that can assist in weather preparedness;
  • Technologies that can provide advanced warning of threatening weather; and
  • How to develop a relevant and actionable severe weather plan.

 Registration for this year’s Severe Weather Summit is just $349 for ESA members, and $449 for non-members, and includes complimentary breakfast*, lunch at the Storm Prediction Center, and a hard copy edition of The Event Safety Guide. Those attending the 2018 Event Safety Summit are eligible for a $100 registration discount regardless of membership status.

Understanding severe weather is a science all to itself. The Severe Weather Summit will provide attendees with the knowledge necessary to identify and prepare for potential threats, and how to use existing technology and expertise in order to safely handle a severe weather event.
