NNE Group’s Gaming & Hospitality Active Threat & Crisis Management Symposium

April 30-May 1, 2018

The Park MGM Las Vegas, formerly the Monte Carlo, Las Vegas, NV

NNE Group is a division of Native Nation Events. Never content with the status quo, NNE Group is always striving to build cutting edge programs with the most relevant industry-specific content and has for over thirteen years. Over the past few years we have teamed up with some of the industry’s leading experts in the fields of security, organizational development and leadership to continue to enhance and deliver our educational events with maximum networking opportunities to create a one-of-a-kind experience for all those who participate.

The world we live in will only grow in uncertainty. The use of terror tactics is on the rise. Yet most security experts are armed with only a handful of linear checklists and status-quo tactics aimed at yesterday’s threats.

As leaders of enterprises in which hundreds of thousands of people walk through each year, concern for their well-being and safety as well as your employees, not to mention your brand, is imperative. Great leaders lead and don’t shy away from uncertainty or the complexity it engenders. Instead they embrace it by taking the steps needed to ensure every measure imaginable has been taken to circumvent a catastrophic event from occurring.
