Most event organisers know that there are many things that can go wrong when organising an event, especially if the event is planning to cater for a large crowd. Sometimes, it is impossible to fix these disasters, like if the guest entertainers or performers are a no-show. But in most cases, things going wrong are due to operational issues.
Here are 3 tips that can help with running a great event:
Plan out everything
It seems obvious and people have been banging on about it for years. The quote: “failing to plan is planning to fail,” has been drilled in to our heads. But to be honest, there’s good reason for it – although it sounds like a cliché, it is still the most significant part of a successful event process.
When an event gets on its way and the chaos commences, you already have too much on your plate to deal with, you cannot be dealing with operational or security issues at that point. They should have been identified, addressed and overcome prior to the event beginning.
A great way of ensuring that this gets done effectively is to instruct a professional event security company to conduct a thorough risk assessment. Companies like All Time Security, have professional risk assessment officers that will take the time to gather the details of the event, including the estimated number of guests. They will scope out the location of the event and actively look for risks and vulnerabilities. Once the assessor is satisfied that all the risks, hazards and vulnerabilities have been identified, he will then liaise with organisers and look at ways of eliminating or reducing the impact that they can have on the running of the event.
Have a professional SIA qualified security team
All event organisers know that events are unpredictable and if not managed properly, can lead to complete chaos. People attending the event need to know that they are safe, and the premises is secure.
When attendees are met by professional, polite and assertive security staff, they are reassured that they are in good hands and this helps them focus on enjoying the event. Professional security aid the customer experience and provide a safe and secure environment.
