Planning a Large Summer Event? 4 Reasons to Hire Event Security

From the wonderful weather to the drawn out daylight hours, it’s no surprise why many see summer as the best time to plan for a large event. Whether they take the form of an outdoor concert or festivals, sports games, food fairs, and so on, there is really no limit to the opportunities summer offers. But with so many moving parts and people, there's no shortage  of things that can make a positive event experience go south. Luckily there’s something you can do to make sure things go off without a hitch: Hire event security professionals who can handle any situation.

In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the reasons why you should hire a team like Canada’s number one event security experts: Blackbird Security. Whether you’re throwing a Vancouver event, Toronto event, Calgary event, or anywhere in between, our team provides coast-to-coast coverage for events of all shapes and sizes. Check out these reasons why having event security on-hand for summer is a good idea...

  1. Monitoring Access
  2. Alcohol & Crowd Control
  3. CCTV Surveillance
  4. Traffic & Parking Security 

Access Control

Okay, so you’ve planned an amazing event – so amazing that people are ready to pay or line up to get in on the fun. But with a large number of attendees present (not to mention the general spectacle involved), having security professionals on-site to monitor access points, control access, and provide customer service is essential for your success. From checking tickets to escorting unwanted or unruly attendees out, event security professionals make sure everything goes according to plan. After all, the last thing you want at your big event is to have all that careful coordination upset.

Alcohol & Crowd Control

Large summer events can become rowdy, raucous occasions. It’s likely attendees will capitalize on any opportunity to celebrate the season, and they’ll do so with some liquid courage. Unfortunately, alcohol consumption is not all fun and games. With a large number of attendees, alcohol can be a recipe for outlandish behaviour, uncalled-for actions, and out of control crowds. Event security can take the stress away by staying watchful of all that transpires, keeping unruly guests in-check, and ensuring your team won’t have to worry about traffic flows.

CCTV Surveillance

It can be hard to keep an eye on all that unfolds during a large summer event. Luckily, trained event security personnel can be your eyes in the sky. By having security professionals monitor ongoing activities via CCTV surveillance, you can rest assured any theft, threats or potentially dangerous situations are responded to accordingly, and in a timely, professional manner.  

Traffic & Parking Security 

Depending on the event, many people may choose to drive. Whether they park in a designated lot or off-site, event security guards can make sure the parking situation is safe, secure, and under control regardless. For example: Event security professionals can be stationed to keep watch over a parking site so crime is deterred. After the day's events close, event security can also help people to their cars if they need assistance, or make sure those who’ve had a few over the legal limit don’t try to drive home. Security guards can pre-establish a plan to direct them to transit options and ride-hailing services to ensure all guests make it back to home safe.
