Executives from Global Rescue, provider of the highest quality medical, security, transport and crisis response services for corporations and individuals, will present best practices on crisis management at this year’s Global Business Travel Association conference to be held in San Diego, CA.  The event, which runs from August 4-7, 2013, at the San Diego Convention Center, will highlight recent trends and industry insights for business travel professionals who operate throughout the world.  

Global Rescue executives will discuss the need for comprehensive, integrated emergency action plans for rapid response during mass evacuations. The session, Mass Evacuations: A Tale of Two Crises, is scheduled for Monday, August 5, 2013, 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Large-scale evacuations present unique challenges to enterprises with impacted employees. Normal means of egress are typically impeded by events such as infrastructure damage, sporadic or calculated violence, anti-foreign sentiments, and closed borders and ports. The session will focus on what organizations can do to be prepared and will highlight two real-life case studies that focus on best-practices and common mistakes. It will conclude with actionable strategies participants can use to evaluate and strengthen their own corporations’ travel risk and crisis management programs.

GBTA attendees are invited to visit the Global Rescue team at booth #2858. To learn more, visit
