Description

The APA Annual Meeting is the largest psychiatric meeting held annually, with over 13,000 anticipated attendees from around the globe, most who are physicians from psychiatric and other mental health disciplines, including social workers and nurses. The meeting features hundreds of educational sessions and presentations on the latest research, and serves as a symbol of the Association’s commitment to improved patient care through professional education. In addition to the more than 400 scientific sessions, over 200 APA committee meetings and allied group meetings will be held during the APA meeting. APA offers the exhibitor, the largest audience of psychiatrists and mental health professionals at any meeting in the world; a professionally designed and managed exhibit program; and an excellent venue to display products designed for the mental health professional, to recruit for psychiatric positions, or to offer other services to the Annual Meeting attendees.

As event professionals, our job is to host people and while we can’t prepare for everything, it’s essential to develop an emergency plan that can be adapted to any situation. In Boston, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority’s (MCCA) Public Safety Team at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) and the Hynes Convention Center, have taken their experiences to develop a comprehensive crisis management training program, starting with crisis communications.
