Event Security

Anyone running an event will understand that there are specific objectives for venue and event security which are to provide a safe environment for staff and visitors, prevent the disruption of the event/services, and protect property against damage or loss.


What type of events might need this level of security?

Where there is a crowd, there is risk...

  • Sports matches
  • Concerts
  • Weddings or 21st or family functions
  • Street parties
  • Fairs and galas, school balls
  • Private & corporate functions
  • Emergency or remote asset protection
  • Celebrity Security
  • Protester & crowd controlling


What should I be considering when planning with a security company for my event?

There is a lot to think about when planning an event. Your security provider will work with you on a number of security considerations during the planning phase. These could include pedestrian flow and access control, alcohol controls, infrastructure, money handling, waste management, fencing around licensed areas, barriers for front of stage areas, lighting in the area, processes for lost children, dog control, signage for directional and warning of hazards, formal traffic management plan and emergency procedures.
