Tourism is a significant economic engine which helps power California. Last year, California visitors spent over $60 billion. California depends on tourism, which makes protecting this industry a vital issue. Today, leisure travelers, business travelers, meeting planners, and convention managers are making their destination decisions in favor of those venues with a demonstrated commitment to their safety and security. Police, security professionals, and tourism officials face special challenges in protecting, serving, and investigating incidents involving visitors and our employees.
With a diverse audience, and a unique blend of nuts-n-bolts training content and social networking, this annual tourism safety & security conference has grown to be the largest of its kind in the nation. Each year features fresh content that addresses the latest security issues. The 2012 conference emphasized crime and crime prevention, business continuity, disaster preparedness, tourism related laws and lawsuits, and how police, security pros, and tourism marketers can collaborate in times of emergency to best serve visitors, protect our employees and the industry. Organized by working practitioners, and presented by subject matter experts, this conference presented training that could be taken back home and put to work at your tourism venue.
If you are involved in securing, policing, marketing, selling, or managing a tourist destination, business, venue, service or special event, or you are concerned with travel security issues, you cannot afford to miss the top training sessions at the annual California Tourism Safety & Security Conference.
