Harrah College of Hotel Administration, featured presentations from distinguished experts addressing the Convention and Exhibition industry, market development issues, new conceptual approaches to event management, education and crisis management.

Daniels, in his remarks presented the Bali perspective on crisis management and the impact on the island's arrival statistics from a series of crisis dating from 9-11, the October 2002 bombing attack on Bali, the Iraqi War and the SARS panic. Recounting Bali's tribulations while enduring these repetitive shocks to its tourism industry, Daniels reviewed a number of Bali successes and missteps encountered in handling its crisis communications.
