SESMA Program: Events in the Age of Strategic Security

SESMA Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 6:00 PM - Friday, September 12, 2014 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Washington, DC

Every major event in Washington must address the concerns of security for the host site as well as their client, the participating vendors and the guests attending the event. While each event site has particular security practices in place, there are risk management benchmarks that should be standard. Join us for this important program presented by security veteran, John Vezeris, President of The Annapolis Group, Ltd.

Special thanks to the United States Institute of Peace for hosting the event with the support and participation of Windows Catering and Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey.
