Taking on effective events security measures will help protect your investment and keep participants and staff members safe. While they're intended to provide entertainment and fun for the community, large events can sometimes draw people with bad intentions. Big crowds and other opportunities to take advantage of others are common at most events, as well.

Read on to find our safety and security guide for events to ensure your upcoming event goes as planned.

Types of Events

You should never forget to hire your security team and make other security-related arrangements.

Events like trade shows, exhibitions, and conventions are all types of events that need security. From staff posted at the entrances of these events to those monitoring the area both in the crowds and remotely, security can help you proactively prevent issues from occurring and can quickly take care of anything that does happen.

No matter the purpose or size, your upcoming trade show, exhibition, convention or other event needs proper security.

What Is Layered Security?

Layered security has the best guidelines for thorough security at events. The main idea behind this method is providing layers of security at different points.

With layered security, you will have agents posted at entrances, around the perimeter, at points inside the venue and around the event itself. With coverage at every point of the venue, including entry areas that are meant to be off-limits, your security team will handle anything that does occur and work to prevent them from happening in the first place.

This method of security requires a great deal of planning to execute properly. You have to work with the venue staff to find potential points of entry and fully understand the surrounding area. During this stage, you'll also figure out the exact number of agents needed for the job.

Benefits of Layered Security

When you implement layered security at your event, you'll find many advantages, such as:

  • Keeping uninvited guests from getting in
  • Giving attendees and staff a sense of security
  • Effectively taking care of any problems that occur
  • Deterring theft and other crimes
  • Avoiding damage to the building and event equipment

Hiring event security and applying security measures properly is key to a successful event. Using layered security is a part of a newer trend of evolving event security that has huge benefits for your event.
