Crisis Response Journal and Major Events International (MEI) announce new partnership for 2018
CRJ is pleased to announce that this partnership will aim to bring commercial companies, host organisations and government agencies together to increase the understanding of the different roles and perspectives in response to large-scale crises through effective disaster risk reduction.
MEI specialises in helping commercial companies, government agencies and host organisations to succeed in the global sports market; it achieves this through deploying a unique blend of integrated assets. Through the MEI network and portfolio of events, access is gained to key decision-makers within this exciting and challenging market. MEI provides a single point of contact for advice, a local presence in sports event host locations and access to key clients/suppliers, to raise market profile and reach business objectives.
CRJ is an information resource that provides a global platform to exchange news, experience and analysis of major incidents. It covers all aspects of human-induced natural disasters – spanning response, disaster risk reduction, resilience, business continuity and security. CRJ analyses past events to draw vital lessons for the future, while looking to identify and mitigate new threats.
Dennis Mills, CEO of Major Events International comments: "We are delighted to announce a partnership with CRJ this year. In the current climate, threat and risk within major events need to be mitigated and discussed to prevent those attending and participating coming to harm. CRJ allows key leaders and stakeholders within crisis and risk management to share experience and innovative ideas to ensure that events are safe and enjoyable for all.”
Emily Hough, Editor in Chief of the Crisis Response Journal, adds: "This partnership will ensure that those involved in major event management can benefit from enhanced knowledge about current best practice in resilience and crisis management. We are excited about our partnership with an organisation with such international reputation and status as MEI".
