Leading Meeting Professionals

Professional Convention Management Association
Last summer, the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) was moving into Hynes Convention Center for its annual meeting when two now-infamous bombs shattered the celebration at the Boston Marathon finish line. Just a half-block from the second explosion, the center was right in the thick of the chaos; it even served as a evidence collection site until the following day. However, everyone at the center remained safe, and ASCA's annual meeting managed to go on as scheduled. Hear from ASCA, Boston police, convention center security and the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority about how the crisis unfolded, how they worked together, and what they learned for future events.
