Whether you’re seeking to hold an event within a greenfield site, complex built environment or an arena; or you need specialist support planning security for your sporting venue; Venture’s expert consulting team can help.
Boasting exceptional knowledge and experience across all areas of event security and crowd management, our award-winning team can work with you to help optimise your operational, tactical and strategic planning, overall aiding the safe and successful delivery of your event currently and for years to come.
Crowd management is a complex issue, especially when delivered at large scale events. We can handle every step of the process for you, from assessing your site for suitability and operations to providing you with a thorough crowd management plan covering all phases of your event, from last mile and arrival through ingress and circulation to egress and dispersal.
From operational management systems, to staffing levels, auditing security contractors, SIA compliance, training standards and sector competence, our team can provide the comprehensive advice and support needed at every stage of your event. This includes risk management of terrorist threats, now a quantifiable and foreseeable safety risk for all event organisers.
Where it is required, bespoke documentation can be developed, along with guidance on the implementation of policies and procedures to protect all assets.
Crowd management involves a significant amount of science and mathematics as well as an understanding of how attendees act while part of a crowd. It looks at factors such as rates of entry, crowd densities/ flows and capacities throughout all phases of your event.
The physical area, site suitability, audience profile and crowd dynamics are a few of many elements that need to be considered. Shared circulation areas, such as transit, front of stage and bar areas also need careful consideration, especially during busy periods such as popular acts on stage or egress. On top of this there is also the potential for freak occurrences such as extreme weather conditions, which can impact on the safe circulation of attendees and are becoming more common. All contingencies must be planned for.
We can ensure you have everything covered, from assessing your site and operations, to providing you with a thorough crowd management plan covering all phases of your event, from last mile and arrival through ingress and circulation to egress and dispersal.
