5 Key Steps to Organise a Large Event
Are you an event organiser? If so, then you will need to think about event traffic management and how traffic can impact the smooth running of your event. In fact, in this blog, we have compiled a list of the 5 key steps to consider when planning a large event.
So, don’t stop reading!
1) Determine the Numbers
No matter if you are planning for a concert or a parade, determining how many people, even if it is just an estimated number, that will attend your event can be useful in helping you plan other aspects of your event such as the amount of staff needed, food and refreshments, and more.
2) Set the Budget
The budget plays an integral role in any event planning, so it’s important to take into account the funding for the event and how much is affordable. Stick to the budget and always be mindful of the costs!
3) Design and Decor
You might want to consider the design aspect of your event – regardless of whether the event uses the road or will only impact the road, decorating your event is something that you might want to do. Don’t forget that decor should align with the purpose of the event and its style.
4) Assess Risks/Concerns/Hazards
Evaluating potential risks or hazards is a good idea for any event. This is particularly useful for events that utilise the road (races, walks/marches, street fairs, etc.), but it’s also worth doing for events in venues such as for a concert or sports match.
5) Create Event Traffic Management Plans
If you realised that traffic could be negatively affected by your event, regardless of whether it’s an off-road activity or not, you’ll want to take event traffic control into account. Temporary traffic control measures should be put into place, with a bespoke event traffic management plan made to address traffic concerns and mitigate risks.
