Threat and risk have both economic and environmental implications for tourism event settings. The threat of natural or man-made activity disrupting the transport, communications or economic infrastructure of any civilisation is a high priority in any cultural context. The delivery of analytical processes and assessment and management protocols related to threat and risk depends on a range of activities encompassed by intelligence and counterintelligence networks. These networks are supported by rigorous training and educational frameworks related to the staging of events, although one may argue that they are in part preceded by measures designed to aid disaster recovery and business continuity in the event of an emergency. The same aspects and parameters apply in event tourism, but are specifically focused on the context of the event as a tourism destination. Adapting an existing model, this paper combines existing best practice and supportive strategies with recent research to create a methodology based upon the three stages of an event: before during and after. In this manner it creates a strategic model which identifies issues and allows flexibility to support those in the tourism event industry.
