Once you’ve identified all of the things that could go wrong at your event (e.g., an internet outage or a piece of software requires an upgrade), decide if you can prevent something from happening (e.g., updating everything before the event starts) or put in place a plan for how you will handle an incident (e.g., drafting an email for participants that explains something has going wrong and creating a group or listserv that you can easily send the message to).
