The Council of Australian Tour Operators (CATO) has today announced that it will convene a Crisis Management Conference in Sydney on Thursday, 21 February 2019.

In this one-day event comprising keynote presentations and panel discussions, attendees will hear from a range of experts from across multiple areas of crisis management including the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, communications advisers and experts from the Technology, Insurance, Legal and Business Continuity sectors.

CATO Managing Director Brett Jardine said, “We are very pleased to be launching this initiative, which we believe is a crucial area of management for travel intermediaries. This forum will provide a valuable opportunity to hear from numerous experts in the field of crisis management, an aspect of risk management that is all too often overlooked until it is too late. The forum will also provide attendees some helpful tools and guidance to ensure they are well prepared when faced with an incident or crisis of any size.”

Attendees likely to benefit most from attending this event include tour operators, wholesalers, retail agents and mobile consultants.
