This is the seventh consecutive Global Forum where International SOS has supported the health and well-being of attendees. In advance of the Global Forum, International SOS has developed a medical emergency response plan for the event, enabling on and off-site staff to react promptly and effectively to medical emergencies that might occur. It will also manage 24/7 medical logistical support at the event site for all domestic and international participants via a dedicated hotline. For more serious situations, International SOS can arrange for emergency, evacuation and repatriation services on a case by case basis.

“We have supported FORTUNE Global Forums around the world, and are pleased to once again be providing this in Toronto. The success of the event is attributed to the quality of the programme, the calibre of attendees, and the careful planning for services needed to assist the needs of an international gathering” said Karel VAN DE PIJPEKAMP, CEO Americas, International SOS. “In our extensive experience, an effective business continuity plan for international meetings and conventions attracting attendees from across the globe, requires corporate meeting planners to proactively assess and mitigate risks for each attendee.”

Over the past 30 years, International SOS has continually pioneered ways to enable global organisations to best protect and support the health, well-being and security of business travellers, international assignees and remote workforces.
