Risk Talk on mega events - planning for the unforeseeable

23 Jan 2013
Organised by: Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue

 

The Risk Talk series organised by the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue brings together international experts and practitioners to discuss current and future economic, political and societal risks and opportunities.

 

What is a mega event? They can be defined as “short-term events with long-term consequences for the cities that stage them … associated with the creation of infrastructure and event facilities often carrying long-term debt and always requiring long-term use programming.” The general public knows mega events by names such as the Olympics, FIFA World Cup, Street Parade and Züri Fäscht. How do you plan for and mitigate against risks for such an event?

 

The Centre is pleased to present experts on the organisational, risk management and crowd control aspects of planning and running mega events. Of equal concern is the fact that mega events are becoming ever more commercial. This development prompts organisers and sponsors to protect valuable brands and related content through the use of intellectual property law (eg trademarks, copyright). Using logos, photographs and even mere words without obtaining the rights can infringe upon them and cause problems for corporations and individuals alike.

 

The presenters at the Risk Talk are:

Alexander Koch, Deputy Head Corporate Communications, FIFA
Will Jennings, Senior Lecturer in Politics, University of Southampton
Dirk Helbing, Professor of Sociology, Modeling and Simulation, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich)

 

Donatella Fiala & Ivan Mijatovic, Senior IP Counsel at Swiss Re will be the co-moderators for the event.

A lot of planning goes into risk management. From this article we can see that the risks are studied from many angles from finance to security and planning.

Jacksonville Jaguars want $2 million annual Florida sales tax rebate for 30 years

Jacksonville Jaguars want $2 million annual Florida sales tax rebate for 30 years | sport facility management | Scoop.it

Wine and football. A measure to give the Miami Dolphins $3 million a year in sales tax rebates and hotel bed tax money has been rapidly advancing through the Legislature.

 

Now it’s time for the Jacksonville Jaguars to finally hit the field of legislative committee rooms. A proposal (SB 922) by Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, would allow $2 million a year in sales tax rebates for stadium improvements to go to a pro sports team that already receives a similar break. Terms of the deal require a team to plan more than $80 million in upgrades and to have at least 15 years remaining on its stadium lease.

 

EverBank Field in Jacksonville is one of eight stadiums and arenas in Florida currently receiving sales tax rebates from Florida. The committee will also review the Florida Wine Canister Act (SB 658) that would allow distributors to make and sell "wine kegs" or large containers of wine. (Monday, 1 p.m., 110 Senate Office Building, The Capitol.)

What are your thoughts on this?  Will it bring more revenue to Florida if we give them this?
