For the current event of science gathering of brilliant minds at ICCAES, the most common step in any risk plan included to make sure that the objective is incident-proof as much as possible are as follows, the below-written points are based on the current event:

1 Identifying the risk – The most commonly identified risk from the event are equipment or technology failure, emergencies regarding medical importance, incident around security, and last but not least crowd management.

2 Analysing the risk – based on the first step the different identified risks have to be analyzed based on the event of a similar type so that it became easy to evaluate the level of risk.

3 Prioritizing the risk – After the evaluation process it is time to prioritize them as per their impact and the chance of occurring

4 Treating the risk – Risk treatment consists of handling the risk based on the priority level so that the best management of risk could be performed and the overall event becomes risk-proof. It also includes the handling of the risk if any occurred at the time of the event and it includes the Availability of a contingency plan for every type of risk that has been found in step one such as the availability of emergency exits and other related things to it.

5 Monitoring the risk – After making sure that every risk has been addressed properly the last step and also the most important of all is to do continuous monitoring of the risk this will lead to quick action on incident or risk if any occurred at the time of the event and by that the chaotic situation could be avoided (Van Winkle, & Bueddefeld, 2020).

For the current event staging is going to be as follows:

As it is based on a science theme which means the decoration and all other stuff are going to be according to it so that the audience which will attend going to easily mix with the place and get comfortable, also there is a need for proper arrangement and the stage with proper audio and video availability so that the ongoing function could be monitor and heard accurately from any part of the place in the event.

The close down of the event is going to be as follows:

Closing activities will be performed to direct the event to its last stage and to make sure that every activity before it will have been completed.

At the end of the event when all the activities have happened and the time is almost about o end the event the catering facility will be introduced and with that, all the audience can leave after having the cousin, and by that the closing of the event would be done.

The staging and closing of any event must be fantastic so that the audience could enjoy the event from the moment they step in and to the moment when they left. This will lead to an experience that they will remember and never forget the experience that they have at the event.


All the important things which must be concluded into the event based on the international conference on chemical and environmental science at Australia have going to be conducted and after performing all the necessary searching and the planning for the day it has been observed that the overall project is being moved toward to the successful event and not only that things have been taken under consideration to make sure that the event will leave an unforgettable impact on the guest which are going to be present over there that day.
