Festivals and other community events: Risks and rewards
— Presented by Frank Cowan Company and Partnership Group
Festivals and other recreational and cultural events are staples of the livable and vibrant communities local leaders build. Doing them right means reducing risk and liability for residents, as well as for municipalities.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to identify and reduce risk through a risk management plan. And you’ll explore the challenges and opportunities of raising money and offsetting costs through sponsorship revenue.
