Additional Info

 

In 2017, Exhibitions & Meetings Safety & Security Initiative (EMSSI) was created to protect the millions of people who work, exhibit and attend meetings, conventions & exhibitions every day. EMSSI is now recognized as Secure Venues. Secure Venues later formed the Industry Security Council to align smart practices and guidelines as a resource to organizations who are exploring methods to better enhance security operations. The convention center became one of three initial venues nationally selected by the event industry to participate on the council to represent the small to midsize convention centers. In addition the venue was selected to be one of two pilot venues to review and assess the smart practices and guidelines developed through the Industry Security Council. The convention center invited the City's emergency manager, police and fire representatives, as well as the local Department of Homeland Security protective security advisor to develop a destination specific response.
