Your event could be a once-off affair. So, even more so that you should seriously consider the use of crowd control fencing. Because you and your staff are not accustomed to managing and hemming in such large crowds. Along with the fencing, it would be a good idea to arrange a once-off security and/or maintenance detail as well. These are the professional gentlemen that are required to do the installation of the temporary fencing apparatus.
You will need them standing by to carry out any emergency maintenance while the event is in progress. While these barriers are built with hard and fast steel, very difficult to enforce, the ongoing pressure from bustling crowds could take its toll. Which is where the security detail comes into play. Although it must be said that your licensed security staff do not play games. They take their work seriously and will always be a tough nut to crack even when attending a last-minute clean out sale.
Then again, such sales have been known to cause a stir. Not wanting to miss out on big discounts, crowds whip themselves into a frenzy. What is it with folks? Anyway, it remains necessary to handle your crowd control measures as professionally as possible. Not only are you keeping your property and goods safe in the process of your big event, you are also doing your part in keeping the crowds safe as well.
Event planners and managers need no reminding of this importance. They will also tell you that the crowd control measures that need to be considered for your event can be managed cost-effectively. This can be done by allowing a consultant to fully assess all your logistical requirements for the duration of the event.
