Keynote: Mayhem at Events, and How to Prevent (Some of) It
Thursday, March 7, 8:05am

Despite what some people suggest, there are few "best practices" in the event industry. Instead, we have to make judgments about the reasonably foreseeable risks under our own circumstances.

In this keynote presentation, Event Safety Alliance Vice President Steven A. Adelman will use stirring oratory and lawyerly reasoning to explore the ultimate risk management question: What could go wrong?

Sports and entertainment lawyer Steven A. Adelman is the head of Adelman Law Group, PLLC in Scottsdale, Arizona and Vice President of the Event Safety Alliance.
